go2linq GoDoc Build Status Coverage Status Go Report Card

A powerful language integrated query (LINQ) library for Go.

  • Safe for concurrent use
  • Complete lazy evaluation
  • Supports arrays, slices, maps, strings, channels and custom collections (collection needs to implement Iterable interface and element - Comparable interface)
  • Parallel LINQ (PLINQ) (comming soon)

⚠️ ⚠️ go2linq has been merged into the go-linq‘s master branch. Now it is available as the newest version of go-linq library (v2.0.0).

All further development will be conducted in the new location and this repository will remain only for compatibility reasons. Please, do not use it anymore!


$ go get


Usage is as easy as chaining methods like

From(slice) .Where(predicate) .Select(selector) .Union(data)

Just keep writing.

Example: Find all owners of cars manufactured from 2015

import . ""
type Car struct {
    id, year int
    owner, model string

owners := []string{}

From(cars).Where(func(c interface{}) bool {
	return c.(Car).year >= 2015
}).Select(func(c interface{}) interface{} {
	return c.(Car).owner

Example: Find an author that has written the most books

import . ""
type Book struct {
	id      int
	title   string
	authors []string

author := From(books).SelectMany(func(b interface{}) Query {
		return From(b.(Book).authors)
	}).GroupBy(func(a interface{}) interface{} {
		return a
	}, func(a interface{}) interface{} {
		return a
	}).OrderByDescending(func(g interface{}) interface{} {
		return len(g.(Group).Group)
	}).Select(func(g interface{}) interface{} {
		return g.(Group).Key

More examples can be found in documentation


Due to lazy execution go2linq has better performance and allocates less memory in most cases. Benchmark comparing go2linq to go-linq is available in benchmark_test.go. Below is the result of this benchmark on my machine (MacBookPro8,1 Intel Core i5 2,4 GHz):
