    Have we had discussion around support for Thrift or Protobuf for RPC?

    not as far as I know; restli all the way down lol. Works well enough for JS/Java. Any particular motivation behind needing RPCs?

    Mainly for the sake of making community contribution more accessible 😃
    In addition Rest.li open source doesn't seem to support secure communications (TLS / SSL rpc)
    @microscopic-receptionist-23548 thoughts on ^^? This seems like a risk

    Yeah... that's pretty bad. But migrating off restli is going to be non trivial. I guess LI has its own authentication internally and so the OS version has fallen behind... 😕
    Though that issue isn't super clear to me. Is it not a restli issue but a netty one? ssheng seems to indicate is possible in their comment to set this up

    Going to confirm
    The problem seems to be: Rest.li has wrappers responsible for convenient initialization of these server / servlets and if they dont expose SSL config options the client will have to figure out how to plugin their own impl of
    HttpServer
    (possible just not ideal from a usability pov)
    Looks like Restli w/ Jetty + Netty both support SSL now - awesome
