    It seems you forgot sqlboiler [1] which is something like "write SQL schema, parse SQL schema, generate Go structs and functions to query the schema". Not quite like generating activerecords, I think.

    I was expecting the article to contain a note about SQLBoiler (https://github.com/volatiletech/sqlboiler) and why they didn't use it, but there is no. So I was expecting SQLBoiler to be heavily mentioned in the comments, but it's not the case.

    I you want to see a (slightly heated) debate about `sqlc` versus SQLBoiler with their respective creators: https://www.reddit.com/r/golang/comments/e9bvrt/sqlc_compile...

    Note that SQLBoiler does not seem to be compatible with `pgx`.

    Consider SQL Boiler because it can integrate directly with an existing database.

    Depending on your preferences, sqlboiler uses the DB as source of truth for generating structs and has nice querying features
  • After 2 years of Django, I'm starting using Go for building web servers. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    DB Management: https://github.com/volatiletech/sqlboiler -- this follows a data first model, aka your database schema will create go code, not the django way where Py code updates the DB. https://github.com/amacneil/dbmate -- I use it to manage my DB schema.
  • Building Microservices in Go: Accessing PostgreSQL - ORM/ORM-like
    dev.to | 2021-03-23
    volatiletech/sqlboiler is another ORM available for Go, it's database-first instead of code-first like gorm, what this means in practice is that sqlboiler generates type-safe Go code to act as an ORM, to date it supports postgres, mysql, sqlserver, sqlite and cockroach db.
  • what's the advantage of golang instead of java or C# in industry?
    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-03-18
    If you complain about Golang's ORM, the best way is to generate code based on Database Schema, Go doesn't have meta programming as in Ruby or bytecode generation as in Java. You can use library like sqlboiler or generate your own.

  • An Unlikely Database Migration
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-01-13
    GORM is nice for beginners because it's pretty easy to get started with, but in my experience starts to fall apart when you need to do anything more complex or start to scale up. I've had good experiences with SQLBoiler [0] on the other hand. I haven't used it in for anything in production, but it's been a breeze to use in a couple of personal projects, and it handles complex SQL queries much better compared to GORM.
