Go Micro provides the core requirements for distributed systems development including RPC and Event driven communication The micro philosophy is sane defaults with a pluggable architecture. We provide defaults to get you started quickly but everything can be easily swapped out.

Plugins are available at github.com/micro/go-plugins.

i run the example code the server is ok but i didn't find the service in the services list of micro :(

Please Sir help me....i registered t in the consul and i find it in the consul dashboard but not for micro dashboard!!!!!!


i running it locally vScode ,can you help me more pleaseeeeee
