Nanomsg Seems to Have Significant Community Support

Free Resource

Modernize your application architectures with microservices and APIs with best practices from this free virtual summit series. Brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

It's been just two days since the alpha (0.1) release of Nanomsg and already I'm seeing bindings and wrappers for Ruby and Python. Like the project itself, these libraries are also in the alpha state, but it's a good sign that Nanomsg could quickly garner a healthy open source community.

And I also found 57 auto-generated state diagrams of nanomsg made by a community member.  That's pretty cool.

Not everyone is confident in Nanonmsg's success though.  ZeroMQ maintainer and co-creator Pieter Hintjens says this is the fourth time a ZeroMQ replacement has been attempted:



Despite the chippyness between some Nanomsg and ZeroMQ users, there's really room for both projects.  The minimalist ZeroMQ style has already been embraced by many organizations like Loggly, and CERN.  If Nanomsg can improve some of the gripes that developers have about ZeroMQ, then let's just wait and see what happens.
