netpeddler: a Go library for fast networking using UDP
Netpeddler is a networking library that simplifies the sending of packets over UDP.
Instead of always having the ordering and reliability of TCP, it is possible to selectively have reliable packets via UDP using this library. It works by having each packet have an ACK mask built into it that can potentially acknowledge the reception of a packet. This idea of an ACK bitmask is described in this Gaffer On Games article.
NOTE: This library is in early development and API stability cannot be guaranteed.
You can get the latest copy of the library using this command:
go get github.com/tbogdala/netpeddler
You can then use it in your code by importing it:
