Go’s best friend: UPX, the executable compressor

The efficient dream team

When you start to develop with Go (a.k.a. Golang), one thing you realize is that the generated executable is “big”. A simple HTTP “Hello world” app has a size around 7 MB (depends on the OS and architecture).

For many cases is not a problem, but if you need to transfer it through Internet or to store it in an embedded device… it’s not good.
