See this issue for an introduction to pubsub, gossipsub and floodsub, which is in the repo for go-floodsub. A PR for gossipsub with Go is here; see gerbil-simsub for a high-level literate specification, as well as the libp2p spec for gossipsub.

The rust-libp2p implementation of floodsub is here. Work is in progress on a gossipsub implementation for Rust with @jamesray1 from Drops of Diamond (which is developing sharding for Ethereum).

Here is a Javascript implementation of floodsub.
