The goFramework

Guarantee your next new or app rewrite DevOps effort gets off the ground quickly and in the right direction.


The Technology

The goFramework is an MDA-compliant (Model Driven Architecture) framework, used to blend business models with technology stacks to generate a rich set of core application capabilities. It uses an open architecture for defining and leveraging technology in a reusable fashion as a Templatized Technology Stack Package (TTSP).

By defining a common model (all ingested supported models get turned into a common model), each TTSP can leverage this model to freely determine how best to represent and consume the model for the sake of the resulting application.
The goFramework allows for the definition of an infinite number of TTSPs. As the demand for languages, frameworks, and toolkits continues to change, existing TTSPs are modified or new TTSP definitions are created, and both can be easily absorbed by the framework for app generation. If you contribute a TTSP, you will receive a free goFramework Enterprise License.

Sprint Zero Becomes Sprint Hero

App generation is a key missing link in today's DevOps tool chain, and what better place to generate code than during Sprint Zero. As other services have become trusted during today's DevOps, there is now a safe logical place for Generation-as-a-Service. The goFramework has been designed specifically with this in mind by following a sequence of simple steps:

Model It

Whether refactoring an existing application or creating new one, choose the right model to represent your business entities.

Stack It

Decide which tech stack best suits your needs, or create and register a new one. Extending an existing TTSP is the easiest way to introduce a new tech stack.

Architect It

Determine how best to provision these core services for current and future needs. For app rewriting, a RESTful API and serverless functions serve as a smart first step.

Generate It

Apply user-specific options and generate the app to be pushed to a GIT repository to be built/deployed in isolation or easily integrated into an existing DevOps process.

Deploy It

goWebApp and goRESTful create the required Docker files to provide the generated services in a single container. goServerless handles pushing function code to the selected cloud vendor.

Sprint It

Get started with app development knowing the core services nobody wants to write (but are critial) are ready and available to use.
