    Do you like an ORM like eloquent for Laravel? Then I can recommend GORM https://gorm.io/

    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-09-09
    Well, if you look at Gorm's prepare_stmt.go you see that it is a thin wrapper around a database/sql.Stmt. And if you look at database/sql.Stmt you see that it's a sort of handle to an abstract entity that it creates in the database.
  • Go, Kafka and gRPC clean architecture CQRS microservices with Jaeger tracing 👋🧑‍💻
    dev.to | 2021-08-29
    Writer service consumes kafka topics, process messages writing to postgres and publishes successfully processed messages to kafka. For working with postgres in Go in my opinion the best choose is pgx, but if you need query builder very good library is squirrel, personally don't like orm's, but usually as have seen, teams often uses gorm, it's up to you. ProcessMessages method listening kafka topics and call specific method depends on topic:
  • What Knowledge Golang Back End Developer Should Have?
    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-08-24
    gorm's performance I believe is fairly impressive at this point. While it was bad at first, they put a lot of effort in the v2 release to make it great. Check out: https://github.com/go-gorm/gorm/issues/3055
  • Read table from database without knowng its field in golang
    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-08-08
    Sure. You can do this, but I would honestly recommend to only do this in test code, if at all. Otherwise, you should aim to keep types and by that the according API to interact with your DB schema static and consistent. An easy way to do this would be to use an object relational mapper (ORM) library like gorm.

    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-08-05
    Once in sqlite you can use something like https://gorm.io/ (or use a golang sqlite package like: github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3) to work with the data.
  • Database for Go projects?
    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-06-20
    If you and your team currently don't have any specific requirements, I'd advice to choose an abstraction library that have supports for most common dbs (eg. gorm or bun) and start with whatever db you are more used to.

    No, Prometheus is the modern solution for Linux and Windows now.
  • Server monitoring tool on Linux?
    I use Prometheus (plus prometheus-node-exporter and alertmanager). You might need to do a bit of scripting for metrics provided out of the box, but it's usually really simple and the result works well.
  • How I do actively participate in the developer community?
    I contribute to Prometheus and participate in various CNCF groups because those groups are relevant to my job functions. In the case of Prometheus I was a user of the tool long before I wrote a PR, and contribute to the tool because:

    Prometheus is a good general use monitoring system. You can combine it with various tools like UnPoller, blackbox_exporter, or smokeping_prober.
  • Implementing the time-series data compressor/decompressor in Go
    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-10-08
    Prometheus would be the ideal tool to understand the use case of this package. For example, prometheus/tsdb/chunckenc inspired my project. Actually, the motivation of this project was to understand deeply the compression method which is used in Prometheus project.
  • Parca – open-source Continuous Profiling
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-08
    Great question! This new storage allowed us to implement a really powerful label-based data model, much like labeling and selection of time-series in Prometheus[1]. This is incredibly powerful when slicing and dicing data to find exactly what you're looking for. Many of our early users switched just because of this.

    Also, the eBPF based profiler we just released allows profiling targets with low overhead and best of all: no instrumentation needed. It automatically discovers targets to profile, which currently supports Kubernetes and systemd. So all you need to do to profile your entire infrastructure is to deploy the agent.

    Lastly we strongly believe in open standards, so the profiler produces pprof formatted profiles, and any pprof compatible profile can be written to Polar Signals / Parca. We also have exporting any query to a pprof formatted profile implemented but not exposed to the UI yet.

    The storage we specifically designed for all of this to work at scale and low latency and cost is also very interesting!

    Happy to dive more into details or talk about more things.
