CircleCI Ideas

Go Module Proxy

We spend a lot of time in our builds fetching remote go modules and moving them around. Having a pull-through proxy in the circle network would give a huge benefit to our build speed.

    This hurts a _lot_ for go builds inside docker containers. There's a ton of custom code in the build jobs I work on to try and copy around go module cache into the container which is quite slow to try and cache as much as possible as re-cloning all the dependencies is very expensive. It does look like there are some solid open source implementations of the go module cache server nowadays (ex. don't see an easy way to run that myself though in parallel to running docker container builds + non-docker container builds so that things can be fast as much as possible.
