C#'s Entity Framework
I haven't seen something comparable - do you know some library?

Yes, I know gorm but the interface from Entity Framework is in my opinion better readable, more fluent and safer.

db.First(&product, "code = ?", "D42") // find product with code D42
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

In C# it would look something like this:

db.FirstOrDefaultAsync(p => p.Code == "D42")
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The main issue (for me) is that you have to deal with strings when using gorm. You may easily introduce typos without anyone notices.

Ok, haven't seen entgo.io before, maybe worth a try.

No matter I miss some features from C#, Go is awesome and probably the only thing I do not miss is the async/await always present in the code...

A native GUI similar to declarative QML would be nice. Flutter is clutter ... still. The other alternative I know is fyne. Both can't match the simplicity of Gustavo Niemeyer's QML binding.

Now it's your turn.
