    > it shows the limitations of the language that you can't just build this inside the language.

    Not sure why you'd make that assumption. https://github.com/dvyukov/go-fuzz

  • goccy/go-json: A super fast JSON library fully compatible with encoding/json

    Rather than explore the specific issues my tests found, I started playing with running https://github.com/dvyukov/go-fuzz against go-json which seems to have fairly quickly found some issues. I've opened https://github.com/goccy/go-json/issues/174 to start the conversation about how you want to proceed here.

    Maybe you can add support for using a fuzzer like https://github.com/dvyukov/go-fuzz or https://github.com/google/gofuzz
  • proposal: testing: add fuzz test support
    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-02-23
    I recently stumbled upon go-fuzz (that is also linked in the proposal). I'm amazed how fuzzing has made the go toolchain stronger and integrated this technique into some of our CI/CD pipelines for continuous testing. Having native fuzzy testing support (not just in go) would be great.
  • Add experimental fuzz test support for Go 1.17
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-23
    Go tests and benchmarks are so easy to write and run: just add TestFoo and BenchmarkFoo functions to a bar_test.go file, and "go test" does the rest. It's currently doable, but it requires a 3rd party library (go-fuzz) and a bit of fluffing around. This will make fuzz testing an equally first-class citizen with standard Go tooling (just add FuzzFoo), and as such we'll probably see a lot more people testing with fuzzing.

    I used go-fuzz in GoAWK and it found several bugs (see https://benhoyt.com/writings/goawk/#fuzz-testing), and almost everyone who's done fuzz testing has similar reports. Certainly go-fuzz has found many, many bugs in Go itself: https://github.com/dvyukov/go-fuzz#trophies

    For what it's worth, I wrote an article for LWN about the upcoming support for built-in fuzzing in Go: https://lwn.net/Articles/829242/ (of course, if you want full details, read the full proposal).
