Open Source Projects

We feel that as we’ve gained so much from the open-source and technology communities, it’s only fair that we give a little back. As well as being regulars at community meet-ups like Reading Geek Night and LRUG, and sponsoring larger events like BarCamp London, we are contributing more and more to open-source projects, including...

Octarine

Octarine is a Sinatra-like DSL for writing a HTTP routing proxy, i.e. a service that accepts incoming requests, re-issues them to the appropriate endpoint, and relays the output. It also includes support for modifying the output, or transforming one external request in to multiple internal requests.

Simple Message Queue

SMQ is a simple database-backed, JSON-based message queue and worker base. It's designed to handle light load only, but is useful when you already have a SQL backend and don't want to add an additional piece of queueing infrastructure (e.g. Redis, RabbitMQ) to your architecture.
