    We chose to use govips which is a cgo wrapper around the libvips image manipulation library. The majority of new development for services in our backend is written using baseplate.go. But Go is not an ideal choice for media processing as it cannot keep up with the performance of native code. The most widely used image-processing libraries like libmagick are primarily written in C or C++. Speed was a major factor in selecting libvips in order to keep latency low on CDN cache misses for images. In our tests, libvips was 3–4 times faster than libmagick on basic image processing operations. Content-aware smart cropping was implemented by porting smartcrop.js to Go. This is the only operation implemented in pure Go.
