    I already played around a bit wit the beta a while back and made an iterator library to get to know this new language. It's here for anyone interested: https://github.com/polyfloyd/go-iterator
  • iter: Generic, lazy iterators for Go 1.18

    Regarding call chaining, it is still possible to chain things with operations that return different types, but they have to be done with functions instead of methods, so the result is still the same, just it's a little less readable. There is a generic iterator implementation by polyfloyd that doesn't support method chaining, but imo being able to chain iterators is one of their biggest strengths, since implementing lazy evaluation manually for a single operation isn't that difficult, its when you need to perform multiple kinds of manipulations that it gets messy.

    One of the checkers in golangci-lint does this. I forget which one.

    golangci-lint rolls up lot of linters and checkers into a single binary.

    There is a config file too.

  • Using Private Go Modules with golangci-lint in GitHub Actions
    4 projects | dev.to | 5 Jan 2024
    golangci-lint is an amazing open-source tool for CI in Go projects. Basically, it's an aggregator and a Go linters runner that makes life easier for developers. It includes all the well-known liners by default but also provides an easy way to integrate new ones.

    Fun fact: We actually use a code linter via golangci-linter to catch misspellings in code/comments using client9/misspell.
  • Show HN: Error return traces for Go, inspired by Zig
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 29 Nov 2023
    The "standard linter" in Go is https://golangci-lint.run/ , which includes [1] the absolutely-vital errcheck which will do that for you.

    For an Advent of Code challenge you may want to turn off a lot of other things, since the linter is broadly tuned for production, public code by default and you're creating burner code and don't care whether or not you have godoc comments for your functions, for instance. But I suggest using golangci-lint rather than errcheck directly because there's some other things you may find useful, like ineffassign, exportloopref, etc.

  • Hacking Go to give it sum types
    2 projects | /r/golang | 11 Nov 2023
    golangci-lint recently integrated go-check-sumtype. I recommend using golangci-lint as a pre-commit hook, but if you're in a real hurry you can replace "go build" with a shell script that runs go-check-sumtype instead. This is probably better than a weird hack, not that you're saying that the weird hack is a good idea anyhow.

  • Structured Logging with Slog
    11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Aug 2023
    This is such an infuriating problem. I'm convinced I'm using Go wrong, because I simply can't understand how this doesn't make it a toy language. Why the $expletive am I wasting 20-30 and more minutes per week of my life looking for the source of an error!?

    Have you seen https://github.com/tomarrell/wrapcheck? It's a linter than does a fairly good job of warning when an error originates from an external package but hasn't been wrapped in your codebase to make it unique or stacktraced. It comes with https://github.com/golangci/golangci-lint and can even be made part of your in-editor LSP diagnostics.

    But still, it's not perfect. And so I remain convinced that I'm misunderstanding something fundamental about the language because not being able to consistently find the source of an error is such an egregious failing for a programming language.
