  • bob

    SQL query builder and ORM/Factory generator for Go with support for PostgreSQL, MySQL and SQLite (by stephenafamo)

    For an ORM recommendation, I'm heavily biased towards Bob (https://github.com/stephenafamo/bob) since I created it.

  • goa

    Design-based APIs and microservices in Go

    A good framework is Goa: https://goa.design/ I like it because is can generate REST, gRPC and OpenAPI documentation. The documentation is a big deal as it is eases the pain of anyone using your API.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • sqlx

    general purpose extensions to golang's database/sql

    If you care about performance you might want to avoid an ORM all together and just write out the queries you need. We use sqlx in those cases.
