There's that word again, natively. Should just say written in Go. The native part is redundant.

I believe the author is using the term 'natively' here to describe the project being written purely in Go, rather than using CGO (i.e. being a wrapper to some database written in C).

I agree 'written purely in Go' would have been a better choice of words, though.

Or even "written in pure Go"

But if it was a wrapper, it would be wrong to say "a key-value store written in Go" (even without "purely").

Does it mean anything "written natively"?
