gonum alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Science and Data Analysis" category
Do you think we are missing an alternative of gonum or a related project?
The core packages of the Gonum suite are written in pure Go with some assembly.
Installation is done using
go get -u gonum.org/v1/gonum/...
Supported Go versions
Gonum supports and tests on the two most recent Go releases on Linux (amd64 and arm64), macOS and Windows (both on amd64).
The Gonum modules are released on a six-month release schedule, aligned with the Go releases.
Go-1.x is released,
Gonum-v0.n.0 is released around the same time.
Six months after,
Go-1.x+1 is released, and
Gonum-v0.n+1.0 as well.
The release schedule, based on the current Go release schedule is thus:
The Gonum packages use a variety of build tags to set non-standard build conditions. Building Gonum applications will work without knowing how to use these tags, but they can be used during testing and to control the use of assembly and CGO code.
The current list of non-internal tags is as follows:
- appengine — do not use assembly or unsafe
- safe — synonym for appengine
- bounds — use bounds checks even in internal calls
- cblas — use CGO gonum.org/v1/netlib/blas/netlib BLAS implementation in tests (only in mat package)
- noasm — do not use assembly implementations
- tomita — use Tomita, Tanaka, Takahashi pivot choice for maximimal clique calculation, otherwise use random pivot (only in topo package)
