    asciigraph is a library for plotting basic graphs in a terminal. It's probably not what you want to have, still an awesome project.

  • g3n

    Go 3D Game Engine (http://g3n.rocks) (by g3n)

    Or... You might consider writing directly to a frame buffer and rendering the graphics directly, currently Go doesn't have anything like matplotlib, but there are options like 3d game engines: http://g3n.rocks/ https://azul3d.org/

  • gonum/plot

    A repository for plotting and visualizing data

    There is this: https://github.com/gonum/plot

  • go-chart

    go chart is a basic charting library in go.

    So far I've been using gonum anyway the couple times I've needed a chart, so I've used gonum, and while I did get confused in a few cases, I never tried the alternative I've heard mentioned: https://github.com/wcharczuk/go-chart Not sure how it compares, but if I ever have some time, I would love to contribute to gonum especially.
