[Links of the Day] 30/10/2018 : Python Object CLI generator, Alibaba Distributed File System, Microsoft API Design guideline

  • Python-fire : library for automatically generating command line interfaces (CLIs) from absolutely any Python object
  • PolarFS : Alibaba n Ultra-low Latency and Failure Resilient Distributed File System for Shared Storage Cloud Database. Keep an eye on this one, as the authors are planning to deliver a TLA+ proof soon. Moreover, I hope that they also run a benchmark against GPFS or Luster rather than Ceph. Ceph is not really competing in the same league.
  • API design : pretty much the gold standard in API design. A must-read for anybody designing or using API.
