  • encoding

    Go package containing implementations of efficient encoding, decoding, and validation APIs.

  • pyroscope-go

    This is the golang client integration for Pyroscope

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • go

    The Go programming language

    I wouldn't classify 100kb json as "huge" but I agree with the point that encoding/json can be slow (even more true if you are dealing with any and not a typed struct/field). Hope that it improve with v2 of the package - https://github.com/golang/go/discussions/63397.

  • sonic

    A blazingly fast JSON serializing & deserializing library (by bytedance)

    Since most of the time would be spent decoding json, you could try to cut this time using https://github.com/bytedance/sonic or https://github.com/json-iterator/go, both are drop-in replacements for the stdlib, sonic is faster.

  • jsoniter

    A high-performance 100% compatible drop-in replacement of "encoding/json" (by json-iterator)

    Since most of the time would be spent decoding json, you could try to cut this time using https://github.com/bytedance/sonic or https://github.com/json-iterator/go, both are drop-in replacements for the stdlib, sonic is faster.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
