Why go plugin addresses do not load with go binary

Here is an example of this in Go - but as he says, don't actually do this. https://github.com/bouk/monkey
is there an easy (python like way) to do mocks?

I discovered this lib a few days ago. https://github.com/bouk/monkey it allows you to monkey patch entire functions, replacing them by whatever you want. Perfect for mocking. It's simple to use. The program is hard patching the code using assembly to replace the function address at runtime. You should not use this lib out of your tests since it's absolutely not safe. It's only compatible with linux and windows. But it works great!

Either the author is confused or has decided that he doesn't want to maintain an hack. Anyway license is pretty clear.

WRT monkeypatch, again, this is a "global" thing and assuming you are talking about bouk's monkeypatch library the author makes the note that

[HELP] Testing SQL queries and functions that use SQL queries in Golang.
3 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 1 Dec 2021
For testing DB queries I use https://github.com/DATA-DOG/go-sqlmock for unit tests. I then have a separate integration test suite that runs against all our services using Docker.
What are the REST API reference projects that can be used as a guide in 2021?

However your point is valid. Check matryer/is for unit test writing. DATA-DOG/go-sqlmock to test database interactions.
Go Package for better integration tests: github.com/ory/dockertest

We have different ways to write our tests depending on what datastore we are using, for example if we are testing database calls that happen to be using database/sql then importing a package like github.com/DATA-DOG/go-sqlmock could work.

Another common method is to mock SQL services in the test. At present, the more popular solution is to use go-sqlmock.
How to mock DB for unit tests?

I've been using https://github.com/DATA-DOG/go-sqlmock. It's pretty well documented, should be enough to get going.4 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 8 Feb 2021
I've never bothered with any ORM, but for mocking the underlying sql.DB I've been using https://github.com/DATA-DOG/go-sqlmock which is very simple and straightforward to use.
