This program is a near reimplementation of ofatomic, by int. It includes new (non-)features, less bugs, and speedier downloads. I created this because if you know me, you know I hate deploying Python. Additionally ofatomic makes some poor design decisions that makes downloads slow and unreliable. Because this is a reimplementation it's shares limitations with ofatomic (such as using a slow hash for updates/verification). One of the things I want to do is rewrite the backend to get around these limitations. FEATURES: Updates: Updating is much quicker as we only download the different files between your currently installed revision and the latest one Lightweight and fast: Since this is written in a compiled, lower level language, murse is much faster than the Python implementation. It's been designed to be quicker too, adjustments have been made that make it significantly speedier. According to my benchmarks, murse took about half the time to install Open Fortress that ofatomic did. I ran both of these with eight threads on a Ryzen 2700x with 16GB of RAM. I used the coreutils time command to measure these. No other programs were running on the disk. Although, ofatomic has an unfair advantage, because it crashed with an error extremely close to the end (as in a hundred megs off). "real" is the actual real world time it took. ofatomic: real 16m15.630s user 1m32.739s sys 0m22.652s murse: real 8m22.129s user 1m28.769s sys 0m33.338s Cross-platform: Of course, we have the usual suspects (Windows, Linux) but we also support other operating systems, like FreeBSD. Hypothetically this will run anywhere Go can. Although I'm not sure why you would want this on NetBSD or something. Static builds: This program uses pure-Go libraries. You can build purely static builds, which means that deploying is simply a matter of running the binary. No more Python and Pip annoyances! Compatability: We try to include flags such that murse is backwards compatible with scripts for ofatomic. There are some dummy flags though, because we handle things differently. INSTALLATION: Since this is pretty new still, we don't have binaries. However, you can easilly install this if you have Go installed: go get -u spiderden.net/go/murse Remember to add GOBIN to your path. This is still very much early (as in POC/pre-alpha). Stability, reliability, and more is coming. Don't use this in production unless you know what you're doing. CONTRIBUTING/ISSUES: If you want to submit a patch, feel free to do so at our mailing list.
