Original post

gearbox ⚙️ is a web framework for building micro services written in Go with a focus on high performance and memory optimization. It’s built on fasthttp which is 10x faster than net/http

In gearbox, we care about peformance and memory which will be used by each method while building things up and how we can improve that. It also takes more time to research about each component that will be used and compare it with different implementations of other open source web frameworks. It may end up writing our own components in an optimized way to achieve our goals
