I'm Stefan, Maker of some job boards for developers like https://fullstackjob.com and the underlying https://boardengine.io
For about 2 months I'm working on my new side project, named Kunven, which is in Esperanto "Come together".
Kunvenu is a simplified Social Media Marketing Publisher Tool, optimized for working in Teams.
It allows sharing accounts between team members.
I use more or less same Stack like with boardengine projects:
- Go for backend services and engines
- ArangoDB for the document store
- Redis for authentication and authorization rules
- Nsq as Message Queue
- Rancher 1.x as Docker Management (have plan to move to k8s after vacations)
- Different to boardengine I use now Bulma, not more Bootstrap, and I like it
- Dedicated Server & Cloudflare
Looking for Beta Users:
As I do this as a Side Project I need some interested Beta Users.
The deal is easy, please have a look Kunvenu

What's your Side Project? Which Stack you use?

There are some interesting choices there. I was bound to experiment with ArangoDB, but this never happened after all. However, I'm most curious about using Redis for authentication. Could you elaborate a bit on that choice?
Thanks for you comment.
Yeah, I really like to work with ArangoDB. Until now i don't use the multi-model/graph features of it but have some use-cases in mind which bring me to choose this DB.
Redis I use mainly to handle Refresh Tokens and Token Blacklist.
Oh, I get it now. I thought that for some reason you keep user profiles outside of Arango and I wanted to know why. But yeah, keeping tokens in Redis makes sense to me.
Hey! Thanks for sharing with your stack. It sounds very interesting! I have few questions:
Thanks for your questions Jakub
For Rancher 2, which is a k8s "management software" they talk about minimal requirements of 4GB, for a single Node setup. I would say 1-2 GB is probably not enough. But must say, that I'm not a k8s expert, I did some "experiments" and in a company, I work we use it, but there on totally another scale
Go frameworks. You know, this question alone is very polemic :-) but I'm in peace with this..
So.. I use github.com/go-chi/chi for routing, no framework for API backend, I implemented own auth/authz (which makes NOT much sense, but it was good learning), multi-tenant layer etc.
For the Web-Server, which "hosts" the Vue Frontend I use Iris, but would not really need it, as I don't have to handle anything special.
Rancher 2 requires around 4G RAM for a single server install (for HA setup you need at least 3*4GiB RAM servers, and it is not very possible to move from a single server to HA). It would run in a 2GiB server but once you try to config anything, some part of it would just break.
Thank you for this reply! 😃
I use Go, Redis and MySQL for all of my backends. Using Bulma on the front-end. One of my winter learning side-projects will be a project to help me learn Vue.
Are you using Cloudflare Argo tunnel to expose your side-projects on your dedicated server to the Internet? If so, you might want to check out my side-project :) I write Packetriot (packetriot.com) and it's built for developers and self-hosters.
You can host any number of services, serve static content and upstream app servers (no need to setup a separate web server for that), and it will manage certificates from Let's Encrypt for you. You can use custom domains as well.
You can deploy it as a container as well, which might work well since you use Docker and containers quite a bit in your stack.
I don't use Argo until now but will have a lock on Packetriot right now
Thanks for sharing your stack. Make's all sense to me and I hope you have fun with it :-)
Btw... You can use kunvenu.com solo too, as I do personally.
Spring Boot with Kotlin and React. Simple, straightforward, amazingly powerful!
