CloudWeGo is a collection of middleware open-sourced by ByteDance's Infrastructure Service Framework team, designed for rapidly building enterprise-level cloud-native microservices architecture.

The common characteristics of CloudWeGo projects are high performance, high scalability, and high reliability, with a focus on microservices communication and governance.

CloudWeGo includes several key sub-projects such as Kitex, Hertz, Volo, Netpoll, Monoio, Sonic, covering both Go and Rust programming languages. From frameworks to networking libraries, encoding/decoding libraries, and serialization libraries, all are self-developed. These projects can be used independently or in combination, and a complete ecosystem has been built around them.

Ecosystem project links: Kitex-contrib, Hertz-contrib, Volo-rs.
