  • Fun with generics: REST HTTP handler proof-of-concept
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 15 Nov 2021
    This comes dangerously close to functional services as popularized by Twitter et al and encapsulated in the well known Finagle library. I don’t know but I strongly suspect /u/peterbourgon was heavily influenced by this while developing the notion of Endpoints in his reasonably well known go-kit library, although it’s significantly less general due mostly to limitations in Go’s type system.

    I think go-kit would be a good starting point.

    I first learned of this pattern in Go's go-kit where I've seen it called "service middlewares". The Design Patterns book describes something similar as the "decorator" pattern - not to be confused with Python decorators, which have the unfortunate property of melding themselves with what they decorate, which limits their practical usefulness, at least as far as reducing coupling is concerned.
  • Do you guys use frameworks with Go for backend development?

    Go kit is a good backend development toolkit ... but not a framework.
  • Peter Bourgon: I have been permanently banned from all Golang community spaces
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Sep 2021
    I recognize him for his efforts to bring Go to the enterprise world with https://gokit.io/ and public speaking, rooting for Go, when Go was not as prominent as it is today.

    I don’t know the reasons why he got banned, but it is irritating.

  • Scala or Go: Who Wore It Better?
    7 projects | dev.to | 6 Sep 2021
    After Go took off at Google and was released to the public, it got really popular as the language of concurrency, which helped in turn to make it the language of DevOps--particularly in concert with Kubernetes, which also emerged from Google. Go has expanded into other domains as well with the CMS Hugo and the microservices framework Go kit.
  • Should I learn Golang or use Ansible to delveop the operators?
    8 projects | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 19 Aug 2021
    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"

  • Show HN: We wrote a book about building business applications in Go
    7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 May 2021
    Thanks for mentioning this experience -- I was really excited about Go early on but went with other languages after a while so didn't make any huge projects with it (and definitely not at a large employer/go shop).

    Did you have to do a lot of stuff that is DDD-related? Like building out abstractions for adapters and connection points, or did you use libraries that did that part for you mostly? I know of some stuff out there like go kit[0] which is quite pragmatic and does some of the 80% use-cases (serialization, transports, etc) DDD stuff for you.

    I think for the most part it's rare to actually need to write a lot of your own DDD pieces for CRUD-y apps, and the parts where the complexity would be worth it are often already done for you by the libraries/frameworks used.
