[GSoc 2014] Port of the Golang programming language: midterm report | Haiku Project



I’m currently working on a Golang port for Haiku as part of Google Summer of Code. Since the last blog post, there has been some progress: simple Golang programs can now be compiled and run.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/zhuowei/2014-07-02_gsoc_2014_port_golang_programming_language_midterm_report/


I realise this is old, but there is the code/binary so others can play with golang on Haiku?

How is this related to this golang porting effort? https://github.com/jessicah/go/tree/haiku-1.9


This old golang port is still available in the old package repos. Unfortunately it can’t be rebuilt from sources, because code.google.com was since closed and the buildsystem tries to get files from there. This is why Jessica started working on a new port for a more up to date version.
