Evo is a framework for implementing evolutionary algorithms in Go.

Status & Contributing

Evo is a general framework for developing genetic algorithms and more. It began life in fall 2015 as I studied evolutionary algorithms as an undergrad.

Contributions are welcome! I am currently a student and inexperienced maintainer, so please bear with me as I learn. The focus of the project thus far has been on the API design and less on performance. I am particularly interested in hearing about use-cases that are not well covered and success stories of where Evo excels. Testing, code reviews, and performance audits are always welcome and needed.


You can browse example problems in the example subpackage. The examples are maintained as a development tool rather than to provide optimal solutions to the problems they tackle. Reading the examples should give you a good idea of how easy it is to write code with Evo.
