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.

Be aware that there is a performance impact compared to using zerolog directly  (my uneducated guess is it is likely due to pointer indirection).

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
claim: qlog is faster, simpler and more efficient that slog; and does more practically useful stuff too

Can you compare it against zerolog?
Zerolog printing logs multiple times

Hello gophers, I am using https://github.com/uber-go/fx and https://github.com/rs/zerolog for logging.
Doubt around "Test only public functions" concept
2 projects | /r/golang | 5 Apr 2023
Hovewer it is not bad to export such a function, if it is done purely for convenience. For example github.com/rs/zerolog works on a logger instances, which can be created manually, but they also provide a github.com/rs/zerolog/blob//log package, which provide you access to the global logger which is more convenient in most cases
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
What is the common log library which is industry standard that is used in server applications?

I use zerolog myself and have seen it being used in production several times. Also they have a list of who uses zerolog

This would be so awesome if it was extending an awesome logger like https://github.com/rs/zerolog. Personally I love zerolog because of how it handles different data types including structs!

logrus README recommended using other libraries such as Zerolog, Zap, and Apex.
If you had to choose a logging framework, which one would you use?
2 projects | /r/golang | 19 Oct 2022
What are some alternatives?
zap - Blazing fast, structured, leveled logging in Go.
logrus - Structured, pluggable logging for Go.
lumberjack - lumberjack is a log rolling package for Go
glog - Leveled execution logs for Go
Gin - Gin is a HTTP web framework written in Go (Golang). It features a Martini-like API with much better performance -- up to 40 times faster. If you need smashing performance, get yourself some Gin.
gomock - GoMock is a mocking framework for the Go programming language.
log - Structured logging package for Go.
chi - lightweight, idiomatic and composable router for building Go HTTP services
Echo - High performance, minimalist Go web framework
Onelog - Dead simple, super fast, zero allocation logger for Golang
log15 - Structured, composable logging for Go
go-logger - Simple logger for Go programs. Allows custom formats for messages.
