  • dockertest

    Write better integration tests! Dockertest helps you boot up ephermal docker images for your Go tests with minimal work.

    Use a library like ory/dockertest to spin up a test database for integration tests. It's easy to use, and tests are still fast. It'll take a minute to download the mysql docker image the first time. But, once it's been downloaded, starting the db, running migrations, and running the tests is still pretty quick.

  • testcontainers-go

    Testcontainers for Go is a Go package that makes it simple to create and clean up container-based dependencies for automated integration/smoke tests. The clean, easy-to-use API enables developers to programmatically define containers that should be run as part of a test and clean up those resources when the test is done.

    I highly recommend testcontainers for this.

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
