I miss the old playground..

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/golang

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • GitHub repo go

    The Go programming language

    Yep, that works: https://github.com/golang/go/issues/49757

  • GitHub repo The Go Play Space

    Advanced Go Playground frontend written in Go, with syntax highlighting, turtle graphics mode, and more

    I still like https://goplay.space

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo gore

    Yet another Go REPL that works nicely. Featured with line editing, code completion, and more.

    Most people use the playground as a sort of a poor man's REPL. I don't find it useful for that due to the reasons I pointed above (feedback latency). You don't have to use an IDE, there are many other tools available that fill that role outside the IDE like https://github.com/x-motemen/gore that I have also used in the past.
