Clean Architecture in Go (Golang) projects-DDD





This is an example of implementation of Clean Architecture in Go (Golang) projects.

Rule of Clean Architecture by Uncle Bob

  • Independent of Frameworks. The architecture does not depend on the existence of some library of feature laden software. This allows you to use such frameworks as tools, rather than having to cram your system into their limited constraints.
  • Testable. The business rules can be tested without the UI, Database, Web Server, or any other external element.
  • Independent of UI. The UI can change easily, without changing the rest of the system. A Web UI could be replaced with a console UI, for example, without changing the business rules.
  • Independent of Database. You can swap out Oracle or SQL Server, for Mongo, BigTable, CouchDB, or something else. Your business rules are not bound to the database.
  • Independent of any external agency. In fact your business rules simply don’t know anything at all about the outside world.

This project has 4 Domain layer :

  • Models Layer
  • Repository Layer
  • Usecase Layer
  • Delivery Layer

The original explanation about this project's structure can read from this medium's post :

It may different already, but the concept still the same in application level, also you can see the change log from v1 to current version in Master.

How To Run This Project

Make Sure you have run the article.sql in your mysql

Since the project already use Go Module, I recommend to put the source code in any folder but GOPATH.

Run the Testing

$ make test

Run the Applications

Here is the steps to run it with docker-compose

#move to directory
$ cd workspace

# Clone into YOUR $GOPATH/src
$ git clone

#move to project
$ cd go-clean-arch

# Build the docker image first
$ make docker

# Run the application
$ make run

# check if the containers are running
$ docker ps

# Execute the call
$ curl localhost:9090/articles

# Stop
$ make stop

Tools Used:

In this project, I use some tools listed below. But you can use any simmilar library that have the same purposes. But, well, different library will have different implementation type. Just be creative and use anything that you really need.

DCI Architecture Implementation

前言 在面向对象编程的理念里,应用程序是对现实世界的抽象,我们经常会将现实中的事物建模为编程语言中的类/对象(“是什么”),而事物的行为则建模为方法(“做什么”)。面向对象编程有三大基本特性(封装、继承/组合、多态)和五大基本原则(单一职责原则、开放封闭原则、里氏替换原则、依赖倒置原则、接口分离原则

Examples of Golang compared to Node.js for learning

This guide full of examples is intended for people learning Go that are coming from Node.js, although the vice versa can work too. This is not meant to be a complete guide and it is assumed that you've gone through the Tour of Go tutorial. This guide is meant to be barely good enough to help you at a high level understand how to do X in Y and doing further learning on your own is of course required.
