Hello V-Lang

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • v

    Simple, fast, safe, compiled language for developing maintainable software. Compiles itself in <1s with zero library dependencies. Supports automatic C => V translation. https://vlang.io

    You should probably do other things than trying to troll or presenting distorted information. It is very easy to go to GitHub and check Insights (https://github.com/vlang/v/pulse). Vlang's commits and additions are comparable and on pace with other languages in a similar category such as Odin, Zig, Nim, and Crystal. Check the GitHub Insights for those other languages, and have the truth revealed.

    Maybe it's an impatient rival developer thing, but I'm not quite not sure what your laser focused fixation with autofree is about. Its the V developers and contributors prerogative to work on it as they see fit. If you don't use Vlang, then why in the world are you so desperately worried about it?

    > Given autofree has been practically untouched in 6 months...

    A search on Vlang's GitHub for issues both open and closed show contributor and developer activity regarding autofree within the last 6 months, to include the last week. Sample- https://github.com/vlang/v/pull/13823

    > At the current rate of progress...

    Can you show us your troll accounts and you badgering the Nim developers, who started in 2008 and didn't achieve 1.0 until 2019 (11 years later)?

    Where are your troll posts about Zig not being 1.0, despite starting in 2016 (3 years before Vlang)?

    How about with Odin, also starting in 2016, but has yet to reach 1.0 either?

    Right, you are not trolling them, but have a vendetta against Vlang for whatever mischievous reasons. The problem is your trolling is very obvious and excessive. Just give it a rest. Enjoy whatever programming language you are using or developing and don't sweat Vlang so much.

  • vos

    Vinix is an effort to write a modern, fast, and useful operating system in the V programming language

    If you'd like to check out more about V, here's the GitHub repo:


    Very thorough documentation: https://github.com/vlang/v/blob/master/doc/docs.md

    One of the coolest latest projects is the Vinix OS, written fully in V:


    It's a POSIX OS that already runs libc, bash, GCC, g++, and Doom.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • awesome-v

    A curated list of awesome V frameworks, libraries, software and resources.


  • v-mode

    🌻 An Emacs major mode for the V programming language.

    An interesting language that’s worth a look


  • ved

    1 MB text editor written in V with hardware accelerated text rendering. Compiles in <1s.

  • go2v

    Go => V source code translator

    We could, but it's not yet public. Rest assured, it exists and there is work going forward on it to get it out the door somewhat soon.

    You may find the public `go2v` work interesting. It's being worked on by some other folks in the community: https://github.com/vlang/go2v
