Top 23 Go ORM Projects

  • GORM

    The fantastic ORM library for Golang, aims to be developer friendly

  • Project mention: Go ORMs Compared | dev.to | 2024-01-18

    GORM is a comprehensive ORM tool in Go, offering a code-first approach which allows defining database schemas using struct tags in Go. It's known for its developer-friendly nature, making it suitable for both beginners and experienced users. GORM supports a variety of SQL databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. It's designed to be flexible, allowing developers to drop down to raw SQL when necessary. However, it's important to be cautious about its performance implications in large-scale applications.

  • ent

    An entity framework for Go

  • Project mention: Concurrency Control in Go with Ent ORM and MySQL | dev.to | 2024-03-21

    In this article, we'll delve into the world of concurrency control in Go, specifically focusing on the optimistic locking approach. We'll explore its implementation using Ent ORM to illustrate how to manage data consistency when multiple users interact with the same resource. Keep in mind that this example serves as a simplified illustration, and real-world booking systems involve a many of additional complexities. However, the core concepts presented here provide a solid foundation for understanding optimistic locking in Go applications. Feel free to explore the complete source code in my GitHub repository for a more in-depth look at the implementation.

  • sqlc

  • Project mention: Give Up Sooner | dev.to | 2024-03-13

    "Is there a way to get sqlc to use pointers for nullable columns instead of the sql.Null types?"

  • SQLBoiler

    Generate a Go ORM tailored to your database schema.

  • Project mention: Go ORMs Compared | dev.to | 2024-01-18

    SQLBoiler takes a database-first approach, generating Go code from your database schema. This means it creates highly optimized and custom-tailored code for your specific database schema. SQLBoiler is great for applications where the database schema is well-defined and changes infrequently. However, like sqlc, it requires regenerating the code when the database schema changes. It's well-suited for projects where performance is a key concern and the database design is stable​.

  • Xorm

  • go-pg
