    There are larger frameworks in Go similar to Laravel. One I had a play with is called buffalo:

    🍐 Elegant Golang REST API Framework (v5 WIP)

    Goyave is not widespread but it's inspired by Laravel on some aspects. Try it out!

  • ent

    An entity framework for Go

    I can recommend , ORM with graph semantics + GraphQL/REST/GRPC API generator

    A high performance HTTP request router that scales well

    I'll check (and I extensively use) httprouter along the stdlib.

    ⚡️ Express inspired web framework written in Go

    I recommend Fiber. Very flexible router.
