revive

Fast, configurable, extensible, flexible, and beautiful linter for Go. Drop-in replacement of golint. Revive provides a framework for development of custom rules, and lets you define a strict preset for enhancing your development & code review processes.

Here’s how revive is different from golint:

  • Allows to enable or disable rules using a configuration file.
  • Allows to configure the linting rules with a TOML file.
  • 2x faster running the same rules as golint.
  • Provides functionality for disabling a specific rule or the entire linter for a file or a range of lines.
    • golint allows this only for generated files.
  • Optional type checking. Most rules in golint do not require type checking. If you disable them in the config file, revive will run over 6x faster than golint.
  • Provides multiple formatters which let us customize the output.
  • Allows to customize the return code for the entire linter or based on the failure of only some rules.
  • Everyone can extend it easily with custom rules or formatters.
  • Revive provides more rules compared to golint.
