My Go Module Proxy: Goproxy
Starting with Go 1.11, the Go officially
introduced a new feature called
Modules, which has greatly
inspired my interest in project dependency management. Through an in-depth study
of this new feature, I think it will bring the first Deptopia in the history
of computer programming for the programming language world. After all, can you
imagine a programming language without std libraries? How dreamy it will be!
And with Modules, there is also a
Module proxy protocol,
through which we can implement the Go module proxy (aka Dependency
mirror). It is foreseeable that the future is modular, so a free, trusted,
always on, and CDNed module proxy is indispensable for Go developers (especially
in countries with Internet censorship). Therefore, I strictly followed the
Module proxy protocol to implement a Go module proxy that basically
satisfies various conditions. Its name is Goproxy. After thorough testing,
it is officially announced here today.
If you trust me enough, then you can use Goproxy with me and help me improve
macOS or Linux
