Concurrency limiting goroutine pool. Limits the concurrency of task execution, not the number of tasks queued. Never blocks submitting tasks, no matter how many tasks are queued.


This implementation builds on ideas from the following:


To install this package, you need to setup your Go workspace. The simplest way to install the library is to run:

$ go get


package main

import (

func main() {
	wp := workerpool.New(2)
	requests := []string{"alpha", "beta", "gamma", "delta", "epsilon"}

	for _, r := range requests {
		r := r
		wp.Submit(func() {
			fmt.Println("Handling request:", r)
