Today the Linux Foundation announced that Ent an entity framework for Go that was developed and open sourced by Facebook in 2019 has moved under the governance of the Linux Foundation to help accelerate its development and foster the community of developers and companies using it.

Ent was designed to enable developers to work on complex backend applications. Developers working on these applications faced the challenge of maintaining a codebase used to manage hundreds of different entity types with numerous complex relationships between them. Ent uses graph concepts to model an applications schema and employs advanced code-generation techniques to create type-safe efficient code that greatly simplifies working with databases compared to other approaches.

Ent is similar to traditional ORMs Object-Relational Mappers but takes an opinionated approach that is especially effective in improving developer productivity.

First schemas are modeled in graph concepts nodes and edges instead of the more common table-oriented method that makes traversing through datasets and expressing complex queries easier and less error-prone.
