Guys, what have people been using Jasper for?

It’s brand new, so I don’t know if many folks are using it. It’s meant for async messaging at the moment. I might expand or just change the scope soonish to being a “microservice harness and accelerator” or some better tag line

I personally feel like you just focus on being a really strong nservicebus alternative. Seems like you are spread pretty thin already and this is a huge project already.

NSB is effectively rebranding themselves as a microservices framework;) The words “service bus” don’t mean much to younger devs and scare off older devs

My biggest hesitation to invest in Jasper is that it’s mostly you working on it and you’ve said that you want to cut back on your OSS work but you have Lamar and Marten which are big projects on their own. Really love the messaging features of Jasper and how clean the code ends up being when using it.

Then fucking contribute Eric
Lamar is small, and it was built inside of Jasper to begin with. Marten has a decent community and I don’t have to do everything there.
