  • sqlc

    Generate type-safe code from SQL

    If you're using postgres, I'm a major fan of the anti-ORM (ROM?) that is sqlc. Nothing I've used comes close in productivity or safety (and ability to write proper queries but use them very simply, and stay up-to-date without too much extra toil). Last I checked they're also working on adding sqlite support.

    The Full-Stack Web Framework for Go

    So many frameworks in other languages are trying to get to the productivity of Rails but they just don't have the same spark imo.

    There is no Rails equivalent in JS, theres lots of competitors that feel years away like SailsJS, the new Deno Fresh one etc, Adonisjs... Is NextJS/SvelteKit/RemixRun considered also? I don't even know if they have a standardised background job processor in JS land.

    Java's solutions are dreadful imo for if you want to compare to Rails. Quarkus/SpringBoot/Micronaut are nowhere near productivity levels for a fullstack app. They lean heavily on the API only side of things. (I do like Java oddly enough)

    PHP is the main competitor to Rails oddly enough, Laravel seems brilliant.

    Go is just starting up in this space it looks like, Bud is another attempt at Rails in another language However the Go ecosystem is heavily API only side of things instead of SSR. Go's templating libs suck imo.

    Elixir of course has Phoneix which is apparently great, purely functional langs unfortunately dont fit my head and feel to abstract for myself (don't hate me)

    Its no wonder we have the backend / frontend developer split nowadays.
