godocs.io six months later May 7, 2021 on Drew DeVault's blog

We’re six months on from forking godoc.org following its upstream deprecation, and we’ve made a lot of great improvements since. For those unaware, the original godoc.org was replaced with pkg.go.dev, and a redirect was set up. The new website isn’t right for many projects — one of the most glaring issues is the narrow list of software licenses pkg.go.dev will display documentation for. To continue serving the needs of projects which preferred the old website, we forked the project and set up godocs.io.

Since then, we’ve made a lot of improvements, both for the hosted version and for the open source project. Special thanks is due to Adnan Maolood, who has taken charge of a lot of these improvements, and also to a few other contributors who have helped in their own small ways. Since forking, we’ve:

We also substantially cleaned up the codebase, removing over 37,000 lines of code — 64% of the lines from the original code base. The third-party dependencies to Google infrastructure have been removed and it’s much easier to run the software locally or on your intranet, too.

What we have now is still the same GoDoc: the experience is very similar to the original godocs.org. However, we have substantially improved it: streamlining the codebase, making the UI more accessible, and adding a few important features; thanks to the efforts of just a small number of volunteers. We’re happy to be supporting the Go community with this tool, and looking forward to making more (conservative!) improvements in the future. Enjoy!

HDR hackfest wrap-up

Last week I’ve been attending the HDR hackfest organized by Red Hat. The trip to Prague was rather chaotic: the morning right after the SourceHut DoS incident, I got a notification that my plane was cancelled, so had to re-book a new flight and hotel. Then a…
