Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
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.
Testing calls to external APIs
3 projects | /r/golang | 9 Dec 2022
Mocking the http client using recorded responses; for example using dnaeon/go-vcr
How I write offline API tests in Go
2 projects | /r/golang | 7 Nov 2022
For example I see go-vcr (note: not mine), but haven't taken time yet to evaluate it.
go-vcr v3 has been released
2 projects | /r/golang | 19 Aug 2022
I've finally found some spare time and managed to work on go-vcr, fixed some long standing issues, refactored things here and there and was able to get a new version of the package.
What are you using for testing your IAC?
3 projects | /r/devops | 1 Dec 2021
Terraform providers are tested this way (separate cloud account w/ create/destroy) paired with VCR to record and replay the HTTP requests.
Go Package for testing HTTP interactions: github.com/dnaeon/go-vcr

Let me introduce to you github.com/dnaeon/go-vcr.

So what can you do insted? For testing databases, setup a docker instance for tests (e.g. like in https://github.com/ardanlabs/service), or start an embedded-postgres daemon (see https://github.com/fergusstrange/embedded-postgres). For communication with external APIs, just pass the http.Client (either in context.Context or as a field on the struct). Then in tests, you can override the http.Client.Transport func.
Embedded database options

There's also this interesting project, which embeds postgres into your binary: https://github.com/fergusstrange/embedded-postgres10 projects | /r/golang | 18 May 2022
This is down to nuance, but all databases are "file based" as they all write to files. But most of them require a separate process with lock coordination to get away from writer lock delays and ensure ACID, which includes Postgresql. Calling any version of pgl "embedded" is confusing because I see that being used to describe pgl databases which are run in a localhost mode with a single reader/writer client. Regardless, those still require a postgres process and access it over IP. For simplicity, if one uses a database by touching its files directly from the process accessing the database, then it's "embedded"; but then again I guess that semantic ship has sailed: https://github.com/fergusstrange/embedded-postgres so the point may be moot.

depending on the language you have chosen for your side project you might also be able to run postgresql in embedded mode here is the one for golang https://github.com/fergusstrange/embedded-postgres . There is similar solution for java as well.
