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.
Tools besides Go for a newbie
36 projects | reddit.com/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
Is gomock still maintained and recommended?

FWIW, I've been using testify and mockery for years.7 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 6 Mar 2023
To answer OP directly, I am largely quite happy with mockery (and testify) to write expressive tests.

What's your favourite part of unit testing?

Best tool in the ecosystem testify. Learn about Table driven test, suite - saves your time so much with setup & teardown. Absolutely one thing you need to follow, if you see anything breaking (or bugs) add tests for that, could be unit tests or integration tests, this's of huge value and reduces manual testsing.

I use https://github.com/stretchr/testify in tests, it prints structs and diffs very well

Assertion libraries that people seem to love: - testify (my favorite) - go-cmp is a more barebones library - gotest.tools -- I have never used this but some swear by it
Libraries you use most of your projects?

TestDeep. I got pretty used to many of the matchers and they simplify my life now.
Patterns for unit testing in Go?

Check go-testdeep using its operators, it is very easy to do table driven tests, see https://goplay.space/#Z91D72aH3Sc for an example

Do you prefer go-convey over golang's t.Run?

And of course go-testdeep which colorizes the error reports with simple but accurate diff.
