The Microservices Guidelines @ HelloFresh

A set of guidelines for microservices @ HelloFresh

How should I name my microservices?

We follow a naming convention for microservices at HelloFresh. Services should be named as follows:

  • If the service relates to an entity (i.e. it's a noun), then take the plural form and append -service
    • For example: ingredients-service
  • If the service relates to an action (i.e. it's a verb), then take that verb and append -service
    • For example: auth-service

When a tech lead creates the repository, it should follow this naming convention. The convention should also be followed in automation, CI, etc.
