  • 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
  • Network Error Handling
    3 projects | /r/golang | 22 Mar 2023
    We have faced several network issue on our backend application written in golang with resty for inter service calls. We have seen large amount of network errors like `EOF, unexpected EOF, http: stream closed` because of which our APIs fail. Have you faced similar issue and what were the solutions you've implemented.
  • Those who use an http client on top of/instead of the built in http package, what do you use and why?

    Go-resty makes it a lot easier to create a http client and much more readable for developers.
  • How do I see the full details of an http request I send?

    I don't use the simple http whenever i need to call any API from code . I just use resty its fairly easy to use and logging requests with it is quite easy

    We need to call PrinterService from the InvoiceGenerator. Therefore, we need an HTTP client in our project. Install Go’s resty HTTP client library with the following command.
