  • go

  • CPython

  • golangci-lint

    Fast linters runner for Go

  • Note that without the `Output:` line you can silently not be running these tests - https://github.com/golangci/golangci-lint/issues/3084 covers when this can be problematic and there's now a golangci-lint integrated linter for catching it
