  • Tools besides Go for a newbie
    36 projects | /r/golang | 26 Mar 2023
    IDE: use whatever make you productive. I personally use vscode. VCS: git, as golang communities use github heavily as base for many libraries. AFAIK Linter: use staticcheck for linting as it looks like mostly used linting tool in go, supported by many also. In Vscode it will be recommended once you install go plugin. Libraries/Framework: actually the standard libraries already included many things you need, decent enough for your day-to-day development cycles(e.g. `net/http`). But here are things for extra: - Struct fields validator: validator - Http server lib: chi router , httprouter , fasthttp (for non standard http implementations, but fast) - Web Framework: echo , gin , fiber , beego , etc - Http client lib: most already covered by stdlib(net/http), so you rarely need extra lib for this, but if you really need some are: resty - CLI: cobra - Config: godotenv , viper - DB Drivers: sqlx , postgre , sqlite , mysql - nosql: redis , mongodb , elasticsearch - ORM: gorm , entgo , sqlc(codegen) - JS Transpiler: gopherjs - GUI: fyne - grpc: grpc - logging: zerolog - test: testify , gomock , dockertest - and many others you can find here
  • Questions regarding prepared statements in database/sql

    I understand that database/db is an abstraction. As to the driver, sorry, it completely went out of my head. The guide primarily focuses on https://github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql, which is also what I’m interested in.

    Authentication method mismatch is not allowed to occur more than once. It is not a part of MySQL protocol. go-sql-driver also has the same rule.

    > mysql_real_escape_string is still vulnerable when being used with some exotic character sets

    Indeed -- mysql_real_escape_string "mostly" fixes this problem by requiring a connection as one of its args, and since it's usually aware of the connection state, it can check that to see if one of those exotic charsets is in-use. But the problem is that there are multiple ways to change the connection charset, some of which the driver is aware of (e.g. in PHP mysqli set_charset) but some it is not (running textual statements like SET NAMES or SET CHARACTER SET).

    But generally an attacker won't ever have the ability to set an arbitrary exotic character set for the connection, unless they already have some other sql injection mechanism, in which case it's a moot point :)

    Driver documentation also typically mentions this problem. For example, here's the doc for doing client-side param interpolation in the most popular MySQL driver for Golang: https://github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql#interpolateparams

    It also explicitly detects if your initial connection settings attempt to use one of those charsets along with param interpolation, and throws an error if so: https://github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql/blob/21f789cd/dsn.go#...

    > Couldn't one just save the extra round-trip with length-prefixed strings by sending the query together with the parameters in a single message?

    AFAIK, no, not with the traditional MySQL binary protocol. The newer "X protocol" introduced in MySQL 5.7 does allow this, but it is not widely implemented in drivers.

    However, you can use something like this https://github.com/go-reform/reform to help you with, I will call it automating the code writing. But I have always opted to one of the supported drivers and written a queries myself using for example this https://github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql.

  • Which SQL driver to use with Postgres

    I'm following Alex Edwards web dev book, he uses MySQL with go-sql-driver/mysql , i want to use Postgres, which one should I use?
  • Are both MySQL and Postgres drivers similar in quality?

    go-sql-driver/mysql is the main pure golang implementation and is the most feature complete. Very happy with the result that it provides.

    https://github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql/issues/561 , and it's not coming anytime soon
