Event Sourcing Libraries

17 February, 2018

Creating an event sourced, CQRS application is simple enough conceptually but there is a lot of hidden detail when it comes to building them. There are a couple of event sourcing libraries I’ve used that can help.

The first, Event Sourcery, is in Ruby and created by my colleagues at Envato. You can use Postgres as your data store and it gives you what you need to build aggregates and events and projectors and process managers.

The immutability and process supervision baked into Elixir makes it a compelling option for implementing these kind of applications as well. Commanded is written in Elixir and follows a very similar approach to Event Sourcery and works a treat.
