Envoy has become a popular proxy in the cloud native landscape thanks to its robustness, stability, efficiency and community. What if we could extend Envoy filters and parsers using Go. This talk introduces the new Go based extension framework for Envoy that allows to extend Envoy with customized filters, logic and protocol parsers written in Go without requiring to understand the entire C++ codebase. We will walk through how everyone in the community can write a Go extension to Envoy to add additional protocol parsers or filtering logic and discuss how this allows to implement a fully distributed servicemesh.
