AOE, leading global provider of services for digital transformation and digital business models, announced the release of its Open Source frontend framework Flamingo. The Framework, written in Go, is intended for the development of sophisticated web applications with customized web frontends.
“We saw a need in the market for a fast and flexible frontend for microservices-oriented commerce platforms,” said Daniel Pötzinger, Chief Technology Officer of AOE. “Flamingo Core is intended for building sophisticated web applications with tailored frontends. Companies can use Flamingo Core to connect to any backend system or microservices via API. Flamingo Commerce is designed to fulfill the requirements of E-Commerce applications and easily integrates with headless E-Commerce backends. We chose Go as the programming language, as we believe it is best-suited to meet the demands placed on a microservices-oriented architecture.”
Go is an Open Source programming language developed at Google in 2007 to improve programming productivity and help developers build efficient and reliable software. The language is easily adoptable for developers, fast in development, offers great performance and is conservative in resource usage (both runtime and development).
Flamingo is comprised of two major components, which can be implemented independently:
Kian Gould, founder and CEO of AOE, commented, “We are thrilled to finally be able to Open Source our blazingly fast, scalable framework, Flamingo. After more than two years of hard work and countless hours invested in development, we think we have a flexible and powerful tool to build the best-possible customized frontends for our clients. We have already successfully implemented Flamingo in several of our enterprise projects, including London London Heathrow and Auckland International Airport, with more projects to come later this year.”
