    Yaegi is Another Elegant Go Interpreter

    [Traefik](https://github.com/traefik/traefik) is using [Yaegi](https://github.com/traefik/yaegi), an embedded Go interpreter, as a plugin engine. It's simple and easy to use (just call directly interpreted code as regular Go functions, no serialisation needed). It's fast enough, as long as the most critical code is pre-compiled, and the whole Go stdlib is already provided. In traefik, about 200 such plugins (various reverse-proxy custom middleware and providers) are already in use and developed by the community.

  • go-plugin

    Golang plugin system over RPC.

    I strongly recommend to use Hashicorp/Plugin, that is more battle tested and could be extended and used by others languages.
