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

    It is mentioned here:, but it isn't included in the benchmarks graphs. Seems this repo is specifically focused on Golang and isn't necessarily motivated by being the fastest JSON [de]serializer on the planet.

  • simdjson

    Parsing gigabytes of JSON per second : used by Facebook/Meta Velox, the Node.js runtime, WatermelonDB, Apache Doris, Milvus, StarRocks

    Just another case where a library tests and publishes all the libraries slower than it, but none faster. cough simdjson [1] cough



  • 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.

  • simdjson-go

    Golang port of simdjson: parsing gigabytes of JSON per second
