Non-psql Golang client available?

Does cockroachdb expose RPC for external clients? Specially I’m looking for a Golang client that does not use psql wire protocol.

Hi @joel –– at this time, the only way to communicate with a Cockroach cluster externally is through the Postgres driver.

Is there something specific you’re trying to achieve that we might be able to help you figure out while still using the Postgres driver?

Thanks Sean,
Postgres driver works fine. I was just curious about the ways that can be used to talk to cockroach cluster primarily for performance reason. Is the data being converted to to string over psql?

the postgres wire protocol is very efficient. If you care about bytes being resent over the wire you can use the SQL PREPARE statement.
