zebrapack — ZebraPack format is like gobs version 2: serialization in Go, *but* extremely fast and friendly to other languages. Use Go as your schema. Strong typing. Well documented (and msgpack2 compatible) format so other languages can be readily supported. See also https://github.com/glycerine/greenpack for a more recent alternative. Docs:

greenpack — Cross-language serialization for Golang: greenpack adds versioning, stronger typing, and optional schema atop msgpack2. `greenpack -msgpack2` produces classic msgpack2, and handles nils. Cousin to ZebraPack (https://github.com/glycerine/zebrapack), greenpack's advantage is fully self-describing data. Oh, and faster than protobufs.
