This is a collection of packages which I use across many of my personal
projects. All packages intended to be used start with an
m, packages not
m are for internal use within this set of packages.
Other third-party packages which integrate into these:
- merry: used by
mlogto embed KV logging information into
errorinstances, it should be assumed that all errors returned from these packages are
merry.Errorinstances. In cases where a package has a specific error it might return and which might be checked for a function to perform that equality check will be supplied as part of the package.
Here are general guidelines I use when making decisions about how code in this repo should be written. Most of the guidelines I have come up with myself have to do with package design, since packages are the only thing which have any rigidity and therefore need any rigid rules.
Everything here are guidelines, not actual rules.
When deciding if a package should initialize a struct as a value or pointer, a good rule is: If it's used as an immutable value it should be a value, otherwise it's a pointer. Even if the immutable value implementation has internal caching, locks, etc..., that can be hidden as pointers inside the struct, but the struct itself can remain a value type.
