As we make our way into holiday season, the team over at Authzed is showing no signs of slowing down. This month we give thanks -- and updates on the product.
November was full of feedback from our quickly growing community. We've been working alongside outside contributors to fix a variety of bugs and mature existing functionality in SpiceDB. November also marks the beginning of a major experiment -- importing schema and relationships from external systems. This functionality can be primarily found in zed, the SpiceDB & Authzed command line tool.
Speaking of Authzed, we're still keeping our eyes out for an SRE to architect and realize our planet-wide deployment of our SpiceDB serverless platform. If these updates catch your interest, check out our careers page.
ICYMI: in addition to posting weekly blog posts, we're now officially posting monthly wrap-ups of events and new functionality we've added to Authzed. We're also giving everyone a little taste of our Slack's random channel and all of it's off-topic goodness.
- We wrote about the architecture of SpiceDB and how we load-balance gRPC traffic
- We archived Servok and built discovering Kubernetes pods for re-dispatching right into SpiceDB
- The playground now supports deploying to the Authzed dashboard in a single click
- Various community-reported bugs in SpiceDB were fixed including various goroutine leaks, intersection being displayed as union in Expand responses, duplicate relationships in memdb, and lack of caching for Lookup requests
- Traceability of SpiceDB was improved by reworking tracing into a gRPC middleware
- SpiceDB can listen on unix sockets (including abstract UDS)
- Jon Whitaker contributed an implementation of the v1 Watch API to SpiceDB
- Zed can now import schemas and relationships from URLs to the Playground and various text hosts like Gists and Pastebin
- Zed can experimentally import from PostgreSQL databases
