Simple wrappers for primitive types to enforce atomic access.

Installation

go get -u go.uber.org/atomic

Usage

The standard library's sync/atomic is powerful, but it's easy to forget which variables must be accessed atomically. go.uber.org/atomic preserves all the functionality of the standard library, but wraps the primitive types to provide a safer, more convenient API.

var atom atomic.Uint32
atom.Store(42)
atom.Sub(2)
atom.CAS(40, 11)

See the documentation for a complete API specification.

Development Status

Stable.
