Hello everyone, the Hexagon Toolkit released the 1.3 version this week.

To summarise, Hexagon is a Microservices Toolkit that aims to provide all you need to develop applications that run on Cloud environments.

You can find more information about the project in the following links:

This release was focused mostly on internal changes. Below you can find all the details.



Thanks to the following companies for borrowing resources to the project, this is much appreciated!

  • DigitalOcean: provides Cloud resources to run tools and test deployments.
  • JetBrains: donates a license of their wonderful IDEs for the toolkit development.

Thanks to Contributors

  • Bikramjeet Singh for implementing the Freemarker Adapter and creating the Twitter Clone example.
  • Donky106 for improving the RabbitMQ adapter and setting up dependencies' verification.
  • Shahid Raza for improving the log statements' information on the library.
  • Tyler Lowrey for contributing with the HTTP Client documentation.

Future Steps

  1. Complete the functionality set (security, Websockets and OpenAPI).
  2. Change the API: make it more consistent and switch to middleware filters instead before/after.
  3. Develop asynchronous handlers using coroutines.
