Fractalide is a free and open source service programming platform using dataflow graphs. Graph nodes represent computations, while graph edges represent typed data (may also describe tensors) communicated between them. This flexible architecture can be applied to many different computation problems, initially the focus will be Microservices to be expanded out into the Internet of Things. Fractalide is in the same vein as the NSA’s Niagrafiles (now known as Apache-NiFi) or Google’s TensorFlow but stripped of all Java, Python and GUI bloat. Fractalide faces big corporate players like Ab Initio, a company that charges a lot of money for dataflow solutions.
