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.
Is gomock still maintained and recommended?
7 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 6 Mar 2023
Looking at gomock's commit history, it seems like there hasn't been much activity on the project in a couple of years. I'm wondering if this is the case of software being mostly done and just in maintenance mode, or if gomock is falling behind. The reason I fear for the latter is there are still issues being opened up that don't seem to be engaged very much.
Want to know if this is a valid approach

Yeah, that would work just fine. Nevertheless, as your business logic gets more complicated, you will want to test more scenarios and mocks will get complicated fast. In these cases tools like gomock really shine and make your life easier. I understand that this is a just-for-fun project, but it's never too early to experiment with a popular solution, especially if you plan on using Go professionally in the future.
Go API Project Set-Up
7 projects | dev.to | 23 Dec 2022
Unit tests are leveraged to test individual units of code. As such it is not recommended for a developer to scaffold entire dependencies for the sake of testing a single object. Due to the way Go's specific implementations work, I've learned over time to declare interfaces for a lot of the structs that I use in Go. Interfaces not only define a contract for which struct-based implementations should adhere, but they also provide a mechanism for which struct methods can be mocked. While I've experimented with the mock package in testify, I've come to prefer the mock functionality which is provided by mockgen.

Where we do use mocks, we primarily use GoMock.
How do you write/generate mocks for testing?

I use gomock or mockery for mocking the interfaces and testify for evaluating tests
How we wrote Tarantool Kubernetes Operator
13 projects | dev.to | 29 Jul 2022
As every software, the operator needs to be tested. In our case, we use two types of tests: Unit and E2E. For testing, usually mock code generation is used (for example, via golang/mock). We didn't like this option, so we decided to use Testify's mock module that allows to mock required function interfaces using the reflection API—the interfaces used to configure Tarantool.

How do you decide you are gonna use interface?

If you don't know how to mock databases, checkout some tutorials on it, it's a big topic, and I can't give you all the details on it. Checkout these repositories, they are used for mocking in golang https://github.com/golang/mock, https://github.com/stretchr/testify
We haven't tracked posts mentioning realize yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
