Build License ReportCard Coverage

Liftbridge provides lightweight, fault-tolerant message streams by implementing a durable, replicated, and scalable message log. The vision for Liftbridge is to deliver a "Kafka-lite" solution designed with the Go community first in mind. Unlike Kafka, which is built on the JVM and whose canonical client library is Java (or the C-based librdkafka), Liftbridge and its canonical client, go-liftbridge, are implemented in Go. The ultimate goal of Liftbridge is to provide a lightweight message-streaming solution with a focus on simplicity and usability. Use it as a simpler and lighter alternative to systems like Kafka and Pulsar or to add streaming semantics to an existing NATS deployment.

See the introduction post on Liftbridge and this post for more context and some of the inspiration behind it.
