    It uses Gin as the HTTP framework and PostgreSQL as the database with pgx as the driver and Squirrel as the query builder. It also utilizes Redis as the caching layer with go-redis as the client.

    I would add Squirrel to PGX https://github.com/Masterminds/squirrel
  • how to avoid writing dreadful SQL statements

    I have written about this before, and my thoughts always settle on using a query builder. I've built a simple one, which works for what I need, but there are more feature complete ones out there such as squirrel. I've also written about how you can implement a simple CRUD library for database interactions using generics and query building to have that nice middle-ground between an ORM and query building.

    Now for the dynamic queries you have to be really careful to prevent SQL injections, there are bunch of different ways to do it but I typically recommend using a package such as squirrel that lets you do this easily, you use it to generate the plain SQL you need (and then use sqlx, database/sql, pgx or whatever you prefer) or use it directly querying the database directly.

  • Why is Raw SQL preferred over ORM in go?
    7 projects | /r/golang | 15 Apr 2023
    I think he means an sql builder like squirrel. This allows dynamic queries, but more important you can reuse function that build a where clause so you can get a count and query with that.
  • Does Go, has something similar to Laravel eloquent (ORM) ?
    7 projects | /r/golang | 11 Apr 2023
    I'd rather suggest the use of tools more aligned with the core concepts of the language such as sqlx, which is an extension of the database/sql standard library. It allows you to use models/structs to map your tables but you have more control over the SQL statements you use to perform queries and the like. You can combine sqlx with Squirrel to build queries from composable parts.
  • Are there any decent ORMs in Golang?
    7 projects | /r/golang | 11 Mar 2023
    But using a query builder, something like squirrel or (plug) bqb, allows you to actually write SQL (or something close to it) when you need it but also handles the nasty string building bits. Though I agree that ORMs are not always bad, especially for small projects with well-defined scope.
  • GORM

    Plug for bqb as a query builder, but there's also squirrel which works pretty well too.
