  • go-profiler-notes

    felixge's notes on the various go profiling methods that are available.

    this is a good read about pprof

  • thanos

    Highly available Prometheus setup with long term storage capabilities. A CNCF Incubating project.

    I like these tips:

  • 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.

  • nvim

    I just pushed my neovim config. It is possible to see the usage of the lsp + vim-test + vim alias for the breakpoints

  • goimpl.nvim

    Generate stub for interface on a type

    If you use telescope, I highly recommend goimpl telescope implementation. Rivals Goland's interface stub implementation. Great tool if you use a lot of interface.

  • gotests

    Automatically generate Go test boilerplate from your source code.

  • sqlc

    Generate type-safe code from SQL

    The alternative to ORM's are projects like where all database code is generated for you from your predefined queries. It avoids many issues including having the wrong parameters or in the wrong order.

  • vim-go

    Go development plugin for Vim

    I use vim as an editor, and I think that vim-go ( is a huge help, if you use the "gd" shortcut to take you to where a variable, type or function is defined, and the ctrl-T shortcut to take you back. Use goimports ( as the vim-go code formatter. This will keep imports up-to-date. There are some other vim-go features that may be helpful. You can have it highlight syntax errors, for example. Not every feature is helpful to every programmer, however.
