reterr

Generates boilerplate code for idiomatic error handling. Can be called on variables and expressions of the error type. Replaces the err variable with the following construction: if err != nil { return value1, value2, ... } Replaces the expr expression with the following construction: if err := expr; err != nil { return value1, value2, ... } Each value is either the err variable or a default value of the corresponding return type of the enclosing function. You can call this template on expressions with multiple values.

func read(file string) (int, error) { f, err := os.Open(file) err.reterr } func read(file *os.File, data []byte) (int, error) { file.Write(data).reterr }
func read(file string) (int, error) { f, err := os.Open(file) if err != nil { return 0, err } } func read(file *os.File, data []byte) (int, error) { if _, err := file.Write(data); err != nil { return 0, err } }

return

Adds the return keyword before the expression.

func m() { "result".return }
func m() { return "result" }

rr

Generates boilerplate code for idiomatic error handling. Can be called on variables and expressions of the error type. Replaces variable err with the following construction: if err != nil { return value1, value2, ... } Replaces expression expr with the following construction: if err := expr; err != nil { return value1, value2, ... } Each value is either the err variable or a default value of the corresponding return type of the enclosing function. You can call this template on expressions with multiple values.

func read(file string) (int, error) { f, err := os.Open(file) err.rr } func read(file *os.File, data []byte) (int, error) { file.Write(data).rr }
func read(file string) (int, error) { f, err := os.Open(file) if err != nil { return 0, err } } func read(file *os.File, data []byte) (int, error) { if _, err := file.Write(data); err != nil { return 0, err } }

sort

Wraps the expression with the sort.Float64s() function.

func foo() { data := []float64{} data.sort }
func foo() { data := []float64{} sort.Float64s(data) }

sort

Wraps the expression with the sort.Ints() function.

func foo() { data := []int{} data.sort }
func foo() { data := []int{} sort.Ints(data) }

sort

Wraps the expression with the sort.Slice() function.

func foo() { data := []struct{a string}{} data.sort }
func foo() { data := []struct{a string}{} sort.Slice(data, func(i, j int) bool { return false }) }

sort

Wraps the expression with the sort.Sort() function.

package foo func _() { people := []Person{} ByAge(people).sort } type Person struct { Name string Age int } // ByAge implements sort.Interface for []Person based on // the Age field. type ByAge []Person func (a ByAge) Len() int { return len(a) } func (a ByAge) Swap(i, j int) { a[i], a[j] = a[j], a[i] } func (a ByAge) Less(i, j int) bool { return a[i].Age < a[j].Age }
package foo func _() { people := []Person{} sort.Sort(ByAge(people)) } type Person struct { Name string Age int } // ByAge implements sort.Interface for []Person based on // the Age field. type ByAge []Person func (a ByAge) Len() int { return len(a) } func (a ByAge) Swap(i, j int) { a[i], a[j] = a[j], a[i] } func (a ByAge) Less(i, j int) bool { return a[i].Age < a[j].Age }

sort

Wraps the expression with the sort.Strings() function.

func foo() { data := []string{} data.sort }
func foo() { data := []string{} sort.Strings(data) }

var

Assigns the expression to a new variable by using :=.

func m(arg interface{}) { arg.var }
func m(arg interface{}) { i := arg }

varCheckError

Generates boilerplate code for idiomatic error handling. You can invoke the template on calls that return error or on any expressions of the error type. The template introduces new variables, assigns the expression to them, and checks if error is not nil by using the following code: if err != nil { return value1, value2, ... } Each value is either the err variable or a default value of the corresponding return type of the enclosing function.

func read(file string) (int, error) { os.Open(file).varCheckError }
func read(file string) (int, error) { f, err := os.Open(file) if err != nil { return 0, err } }
