  • What Is Wrong with TOML?
    15 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Sep 2023
    I wrote one of the Go implementations [0] when TOML was announced and have maintained it since.

    As a library implementor, I wish arrays would hold only one type at a time, but I get that could be useful for users. But as a user, I wish tables were fully defined once (more can't be added up later in the file), especially when using larger files.

  • Convert any to string or alternative to any
    1 project | /r/golang | 2 Dec 2022
    I am very new to golang and am trying to write a Program that uses INI Cobfiguration Files. The library that I am using, has built in functions to output the Key as a certain type (string, int, bool, etc). However as I will be accessing several different Keys of different types, I wrote a wrapper that takes the section and key name and the output type, passes that to the libraries functions and outputs the result as the any type. While trying to pass the output into another function that requires a string, it throws the error that it is unable to convert any to string as string requires type assertion. I couldn't find much about the any type, but it seems luke i will either need to redesign my wrapper function, use an alternative to any or find a way to convert any to string or []byte at least.
