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.
How to start a Go project in 2023

Things I can't live without in a new Go project in no particular order:
- https://github.com/golangci/golangci-lint - meta-linter
- https://goreleaser.com - automate release workflows
- https://magefile.org - build tool that can version your tools
- https://github.com/ory/dockertest/v3 - run containers for e2e testing
- https://github.com/ecordell/optgen - generate functional options
- https://golang.org/x/tools/cmd/stringer - generate String()
- https://mvdan.cc/gofumpt - stricter gofmt
- https://github.com/stretchr/testify - test assertion library
- https://github.com/rs/zerolog - logging
- https://github.com/spf13/cobra - CLI framework
FWIW, I just lifted all the tools we use for https://github.com/authzed/spicedb
We've also written some custom linters that might be useful for other folks: https://github.com/authzed/spicedb/tree/main/tools/analyzers

How to integrate golangci-lint into a project?

Hey, I try to figure out an elegant way to integrate golangci into a Go project.
A fast HashSet implementation

All of this is nitpicking really, but I would suggest using linters, e.g. https://github.com/golangci/golangci-lint - sometimes annoying, but mostly just helps to avoid discussions like this (and plethora of bugs).

You should always use golangci-lint, which includes errcheck.

I disagree with at least half of your post, tooling in Go is amazing overall and there is one linter that pretty much every one is using: https://github.com/golangci/golangci-lint

Use Viper for config file or environmental variable configuration -- it's going to save you a whole lot of time.
Which packages do you recommend for building cli tools?
10 projects | /r/golang | 17 Apr 2023
Cobra and Viper.
Library for Python similar to Go's Viper / 12 Factor

I've mostly been using https://github.com/spf13/viper of late for my go projects. It supports the standard config formats, (json, yaml, toml etc) and lets you override any value with a ENV value.
Two ways to provide configuration: command-line, yaml file.

Not only that, the "unmarshall to struct" method doesn't work at all for environment variables. https://github.com/spf13/viper/issues/188
Tools besides Go for a newbie
36 projects | /r/golang | 26 Mar 2023
IDE: use whatever make you productive. I personally use vscode. VCS: git, as golang communities use github heavily as base for many libraries. AFAIK Linter: use staticcheck for linting as it looks like mostly used linting tool in go, supported by many also. In Vscode it will be recommended once you install go plugin. Libraries/Framework: actually the standard libraries already included many things you need, decent enough for your day-to-day development cycles(e.g. `net/http`). But here are things for extra: - Struct fields validator: validator - Http server lib: chi router , httprouter , fasthttp (for non standard http implementations, but fast) - Web Framework: echo , gin , fiber , beego , etc - Http client lib: most already covered by stdlib(net/http), so you rarely need extra lib for this, but if you really need some are: resty - CLI: cobra - Config: godotenv , viper - DB Drivers: sqlx , postgre , sqlite , mysql - nosql: redis , mongodb , elasticsearch - ORM: gorm , entgo , sqlc(codegen) - JS Transpiler: gopherjs - GUI: fyne - grpc: grpc - logging: zerolog - test: testify , gomock , dockertest - and many others you can find here

Is this sufficiently better than https://github.com/spf13/viper to warrant a switch?
[QUESTION] - How would I Read from multiple config files and environment variables?

I'm using https://github.com/spf13/viper for configuration manager.2 projects | /r/golang | 15 Mar 2023
Ya, I think this issue explains one of the problems: https://github.com/spf13/viper/issues/761

How To Work With Multiple Go Files?
2 projects | /r/golang | 2 Feb 2023
There are some Go packages that can make config easy such as Viper or what I'll do in some of my quick/simple projects is to have a Config struct that I load from a JSON file. You can .gitignore the JSON file, and have your program on first startup write a default JSON file with some sensible default settings (like randomized secret keys for your cookies or JWT tokens and await only your database and email credentials to be filled in).
What are some alternatives?
godotenv - A Go port of Ruby's dotenv library (Loads environment variables from .env files)
envconfig - Small library to read your configuration from environment variables
koanf - Simple, extremely lightweight, extensible, configuration management library for Go. Support for JSON, TOML, YAML, env, command line, file, S3 etc. Alternative to viper.
ireturn - Accept Interfaces, Return Concrete Types
kelseyhightower/envconfig - Golang library for managing configuration data from environment variables
mapstructure - Go library for decoding generic map values into native Go structures and vice versa.
cleanenv - ✨Clean and minimalistic environment configuration reader for Golang
ini - Package ini provides INI file read and write functionality in Go
goConfig - goconfig uses a struct as input and populates the fields of this struct with parameters from command line, environment variables and configuration file.
gosec - Golang security checker
golangci-lint-action - Official GitHub action for golangci-lint from its authors
config - JSON or YAML configuration wrapper with convenient access methods.
