Code Style

In addition to standard Go code style (gofmt, goimports), we use golangci-lint to run a number of linters, the exact list can be found under linters in .golangci.yml. Installation and Editor Integration for it can be found in the readme of golangci-lint.

For rare cases where a linter is giving a spurious warning, it can be disabled for that line or statement using a comment directive, e.g. var bad_name int //nolint:golint,unused. This should be used sparingly and only when its clear that the lint warning is spurious.

The linters can be run using build/scripts/find-lint.sh (see file for docs) or as part of a build/test/lint cycle using build/scripts/build-test-lint.sh.

## Labels

In addition to TODO and FIXME we also use NOTSPEC to identify deviations from the Matrix specification.

Logging

We generally prefer to log with static log messages and include any dynamic information in fields.

logger := util.GetLogger(ctx)

// Not recommended
logger.Infof("Finished processing keys for %s, number of keys %d", name, numKeys)

// Recommended
logger.WithFields(logrus.Fields{
    "numberOfKeys": numKeys,
    "entityName":   name,
}).Info("Finished processing keys")

This is useful when logging to systems that natively understand log fields, as it allows people to search and process the fields without having to parse the log message.

Visual Studio Code

If you use VSCode then the following is an example of a workspace setting that sets up linting correctly:

{
    "go.lintTool":"golangci-lint",
    "go.lintFlags": [
      "--fast"
    ]
}
