  • go-enum

    An enum generator for go

  • I've worked in a few different languages and Go doesn't seem all that unique in the way that it doesn't provide an ENUM primitive. However, I looked around a bit and found go-enum which seems pretty neat. Also, I have no problem writing a custom string or int/iota type. In some cases you want to be able to serialize/deserialize with them -- and in others you don't need that.
