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.

What are people’s thoughts on testing frameworks? I’ve heard that most devs only use the testing package in the standard library and the testify package for assertions— I assume this is because Go is meant to be lightweight and scalable, and adding external dependencies basically goes against that. But I’ve also seen devs use packages like ginkgo to make tests more structured and readable. What do you guys think?

If you write your tests with Ginkgo  its CLI can do this for you. It also has nice facilities to quickly disable a test or portion of a test by pretending an X to the test function name, or to focus a test (only run that test) by prepending an F. It’s pretty nice.

Ginkgo for unit testing?

To settle an argument amongst my coworkers, I started a Twitter poll on using Gingko for golang unit testing. Some like the framework because it makes tests clean. Others hate it with a firey passion.

As a big fan of automated testing, it’s comforting to learn that we can easily write tests for our controllers using envtest (which runs a local k8s control plane so we can run our tests against it), the Gingko testing framework and the Gomega matching/assertion library:
