Top 8 Go plan9 Projects

  • sha256-simd

    Accelerate SHA256 computations in pure Go using AVX512, SHA Extensions for x86 and ARM64 for ARM. On AVX512 it provides an up to 8x improvement (over 3 GB/s per core). SHA Extensions give a performance boost of close to 4x over native.

    SHA256 is high quality but typically a bit slower. Next Go version will have faster SHA256 on some amd64 CPUs - until then you can try sha256-simd which offers the same.

  • highwayhash

    Native Go version of HighwayHash with optimized assembly implementations on Intel and ARM. Able to process over 10 GB/sec on a single core on Intel CPUs - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HighwayHash (by minio)

    highwayhash (alt) provides 256 bits. Fast mainly for larger inputs and supports seeds.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • xdg-go

    Go implementation of the XDG Base Directory Specification and XDG user directories

  • opossum

    Rudimentary web browser written in Golang (by psilva261)

    Although, technically opossum is modern, it's just not very functional.

  • edwood

    Go version of Plan9 Acme Editor

    Project mention: Plan 9 from User Space | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-04-28

    esc = select the last "stuff" just typed

    The fact you can create your own "buttons" that do basically anything is pretty nice, but you REALLY want a 3 button pointing device to use it. It also doesn't care about the programming language you use to create such a button, but you will work with the filesystem metaphor provided by Acme itself to get things done.

    I find the mouse interface is extremely fast, and when you couple it with the power of the plumber in Plan 9, it's a reasonably good way to navigate around a complex workflow.

    It's also a reasonably small environment in terms of lines of code. The Go version (Edwood) is pretty good too! https://github.com/rjkroege/edwood

  • cpu

    cpu command in Go, inspired by the Plan 9 cpu command

  • yacco

    9haram clone of the acme text editor

    Project mention: The Text Editor Sam by Rob Pike | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-05

    There are some forks (or reimplementations) of acme that have more keybindings, allowing you to avoid mouse cording. Here are a couple that I like:

  • 8menu

    9menu-like launcher in Go

    Project mention: Plan 9 – introduction to library functions | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-05-04

    It's always a pleasant surprise to see Plan9 getting some love :)

    If you're into plan9, and miss the old 9menu, I'd like to present 8menu! It's written in Go, and uses Fyne for the GUI. It lets you make simple button<-> action toolbars on the fly - https://github.com/donuts-are-good/8menu
