  • Generic Concurrency in Go

    Actually there were a few nice code generation tools that were doing almost this templating for pre-generic versions of Go. genny is just one example.

    Im not sure about any library in particular.

    There were bunch of libraries which helped with code generation to work around generics. I don't think it was specific to Graphql. is one I have seen.

  • To Those Who Criticize JavaScript

    TypeScript is pretty much necessary for a modern JS project if you ask me, so I agree with you here. At the same time, I'd say that if the JS ecosystem offers a solution, that doesn't count as a failure. It's like pointing to the lack of generics in Go and calling that a failure. No, that's a design choice that can be worked around. Same in JS; dynamic typing was a design choice, TypeScript is a solution.
  • Learn to build SDK or Wrapper over REST and Websocker

    If you want to experiment, I've been meaning to try out this library, which uses code generation (a first-class feature in go), to give generics-like functionality.
  • Created my first go tool, an interface generator

    If you are into codegen, there are some larger codegen projects or there, like cheekybits/codegen (there are more in the space of trying to circumvent generics in go).
  • Metaprogramming

    In golang there is no parametric polymorphism (or “type parameters”, or “generics”). So people created workarounds, for example, gengen (similar solutions genny, generic, gen):
