    3 years ago I created a internal library where I worked to setup the testing with the db's. One param was the schema directory and the other one was the path of the data insertion file. It worked really well but was a little slow. It was a little bit weird to configure the container to run the tests. As I would have to give access to go container that ran the unit tests access to docker. But back then I was running boot2docker and made things very cumbersome. I think with a local docker things would be way simpler. I ended up using and normal DB from the CI/CD and If I had to do it again I might do an hybrid in-between the two solutions

    The first one is TestMain, which could improve the lifecycle management of the container. The second one is DATA-DOG/go-txdb, this allows you to open a new db connection running in a transaction, so each test could have its own isolated DB connection.
