Testing is one of the most important parts of the software development process. You can either do it manually or use automated testing. However, automation has its own advantages over manual testing. Manual testing can be time-consuming and has a large chance of human error. Automated software testing is preferred in most cases because you can run tests repeatedly and at any time you want. It helps developers identify bugs early in the development cycle and rectify them as soon as possible. Go is an open-source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Go provides a built-in package called “testing” that you can use for writing unit tests for your application.
In this kit, there are many other tools available for Go that you can use for your test suites to make them more powerful and easier to write. gotests - Automatically generate Go test boilerplate from your source code; goreporter - Golang tool that does static analysis, unit testing, code review; moq - Interface mocking tool for go generate.
