Moleculer Go

🚀 Progressive microservices framework for Go Moleculer Gopher Gopher

Inspired and compatible with Moleculer JS

Simple, fast, light and fun to develop with. Also easy, very easy to test ;)

Get Started


package main

import (


type MathService struct {

func (s MathService) Name() string {
	return "math"

func (s *MathService) Add(params moleculer.Payload) int {
	return params.Get("a").Int() + params.Get("b").Int()

func (s *MathService) Sub(a int, b int) int {
	return a - b

func main() {
	var bkr = broker.New(&moleculer.Config{LogLevel: "error"})
	result := <-bkr.Call("math.add", map[string]int{
		"a": 10,
		"b": 130,
	fmt.Println("result: ", result.Int())
	//$ result: 140



v0.1.0 (MVP)

Development is complete - Documentation is in-progress and benchmark is also in-progress.
