"SHENZHEN GO" (working title)

Build Status Doc Status license

SHENZHEN GO (working title) is an experimental visual Go environment, inspired by programming puzzle games such as TIS-100 and SHENZHEN I/O.

SHENZHEN GO provides a UI for editing a "graph," where the nodes are goroutines and the arrows are channel reads and writes. (This is analogous to multiple "microcontrollers" communicating electrically in a circuit.) It can also convert a graph into pure Go source code, which can be compiled and run, or used as a library in a regular Go program.

SHENZHEN GO was unveiled at the 2017 Open Source & Games Miniconf.

This is an experimental project - expect plenty of rough edges and bugs, and no support.
