    Project mention: Sponsor the open source projects you depend on | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-04-10

    I'm on the receiving end of donations from sourcegraph for this. It's around $10 per month from that single donation and is for the only Go HTML santizer, which you use when you have user generated / untrusted input that you need to display as HTML. https://github.com/microcosm-cc/bluemonday

    For me the library has been good enough for my own use for a very very long time. I mostly neglect it unless there's some critical issue. I don't improve it at all as my time is better spent on my day job.

    I've often thought that there's room for improvement such as a DOM style santizer to validate input rather than just a SAX style sanitizer, perhaps formatting of output in addition to sanitising input, transformation rules, etc.

    When I got the donation I was surprised, first ever bit of support for open source software I'd written (as this was not written on company dime).

    Even at $10 per month it's motivating enough to think someone values it. If it accrues into something significant I may actually feel motivated to improve it.

    Interesting is that I'd regard this as successful by usage, it's used by virtually everything in the Go world that makes a website.

    Perhaps people don't know it exists though? And for that awareness thanks to thanks.dev

  • xpath

    Project mention: I have this code On Playground.. It is very simplified... but when reading from file it breaks and cannot handle rune characters.... The strings.Replace function just stops working | /r/golang | 2023-02-23

    It looks like you're trying to parse HTML by using the strings package. For reference, you might be better off using an xpath tool or the html package that has built-in tokenizers to do your tokenizing. That makes it easier to find the nodes you're looking for and the values contained within those nodes.

  • omniparser

    omniparser: a native Golang ETL streaming parser and transform library for CSV, JSON, XML, EDI, text, etc.

  • mxj

  • go-runewidth

    wcwidth for golang

    Project mention: Terminal Support for Emoji | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-08

    Is it windows or is it golang making the difference there? Golang's implementation of wcwidth is different, and a commonly used lib has an 'emoji' table which covers that bomb (1F4A3)


    The family emoji looks to have the wrong width, but it does resemble the behaviour supposed to be fixed by https://github.com/mattn/go-runewidth/pull/63 (see https://github.com/mattn/go-runewidth/issues/59 - like the flag example, that's multiple emojis with zwnj right?)
