    Community-run blacklists for plugins like uBlock Origin are comprehensive and well-maintained

    I think that blacklists are opposite to search in a sense. Naive search is an easy target for those who try to game its results in an endless arms war. Ads and annoyance listings are not, because those who want to game it would a) delete the specific rules and get catched by feedback, b) add rules to downplay the opponents and also get reported. In a search, there is hard to say who played low, because everyone will do that.

    I think “we” should resurrect directories instead of a search, because it already presented itself as nonsense in a long run for too many times.

    A directory is a categorized collection of links with a meaningful description (opposed to in-site bs marketing claims which these sites have to do no matter what) and few curated comments. E.g. awesome lists out there:

    https://github.com/vinta/awesome-python

    https://github.com/quozd/awesome-dotnet

    https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go

    https://github.com/awesome-selfhosted/awesome-selfhosted

    … think awesome cars, awesome appliances, awesome socks, awesome instruments, awesome food etc. Every area has some interned knowledge which waits for a platform to post it on. There will be ads push force just like with search, but at least it would be controlled by community, not by faceless moremoney entity. The difference with search is that search is automated and thus much more vulnerable to ranking tricks. You can then run very naive search over this curated data and get good results.

    Also it would shift trust from sites (which you want to find out to trust or not in the first place) to people who pull-request links into a directory. You never know which of SERP results made by whom. In a directory, you can see who posted what and what their rating or age of participation is. This is inevitable because in a modern world trust can only be huilt with time to a person, and there is no good will except of someone real who got tired of the shit so much that they are ready to go to lengths to explain/advise/help others and get it back eventually (that’s the core of foss idea). No corp can align with what we want anymore, because their competition is always better at money, and at SERP. there is simply no other way, in my view.

    Honestly, pick a couple of ones that interest you off https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go and start hacking away and picking things off that project's issues.

    bring your own tools - this is where you select your libraries and then wire them together manually. Most libraries play very well with other libraries https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go -- so it can be easier than in other languages. This approach is very common.

  • Having a hard time learning golang

    As mentioned by others, I would suggest starting with Go tour and try to digest as much as you can from it. Once you feel you are ready, take a peek into the Awesome Go github repo https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go. There you can find a lot of examples of how to write and organize your code.

    What's great is there are really great patterns to follow out there on github (both code patterns https://github.com/tmrts/go-patterns and examples https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go https://github.com/go-kit/kit and for the app itself, https://github.com/golang-standards/project-layout )... and for me a really naggy mentor who insists everything be "idiomatic go"
