CloudSeed Tech Stack

What's Included

CloudSeed ships with boring, battle-tested technologies so you can focus on building your web service.

  • Containerized, Orchestrated Apps

    Each app is fully containerized via Docker with top-level docker-compose for orchestrating serving and testing against a live, local DB

  • Backend (F# / .NET)

    CloudSeed is built to be API-first with minimal external dependencies. By default: Giraffe on .NET (server), Dapper (ORM), docker-compose to spin up full local copy with live DB.

  • Backend Tests (F# / xUnit)

    Comprehensive testing suite ready for TDD. XUnit (testing framework) orchestrated with docker-compose for full integration tests against a live local DB.

  • [Optional] Frontend (Svelte / SvelteKit)

    CloudSeed ships with a barebones frontend built with Svelte / SvelteKit. Easy to replace with the web framework of your choice.

  • [Local] Development Database (Postgres)

    A containerized Postgres instance for local testing / serving against a live DB. Easy to replace with a different DB technology.
