Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
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

How do you install commands using go.mod

There are some packages in my project that are not used in the source code, but they're used as commands (i.e. https://github.com/vektra/mockery https://github.com/rubenv/sql-migrate).

Gomock or mockery?
mockcompose to generate mocking implementation for Go classes, interfaces and functions
3 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 6 Jul 2021
As a Go newbie, the on-boarding process to Golang went relatively smoothly except a small glitch when it came to search for a mocking framework to test out a Go class implementation. I was a bit surprised to realize that I was not able to find a on-shelf tool to help me mock a class method. It might be an edge case scenario that I wanted to mock a class method, but I do believe that this is a valid use case, so I went ahead to spend a weekend building such a tool: mockcompose. It was originally aimed to just solve this one particular use case, therefore, it had to be used together with mockery (one of the great tools I found during my search in the period). I later refined the tool to cover mocking code generation for Go interfaces and functions, mockcompose can now be used in most of Go unit test scenarios. Please check it out and give it a try, I hope the tool is useful, feel free to drop your feedback and share with your opinion there.
