CoreStore library WIP

Build Status wercker status Appveyor Build status GoDoc Join the chat at goreportcard

eCommerce library which is compatible to Magento 1 and 2 database schema.

Magento is a trademark of MAGENTO, INC..

Min. Go Version: 1.7


To properly use the CoreStore library some environment variables must be set before running go generate. (TODO)

Required settings

CS_DSN the environment variable for the MySQL connection.

$ export CS_DSN='magento1:magento1@tcp(localhost:3306)/magento1'
$ export CS_DSN='magento2:magento2@tcp(localhost:3306)/magento2'
$ go get
$ export CS_DSN='see previous'
$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ go run codegen/tableToStruct/*.go


Setup two databases. One for Magento 1 and one for Magento 2 and fill them with the provided test data.

Create a DSN env var CS_DSN and point it to Magento 1 database. Run the tests. Change the env var to let it point to Magento 2 database. Rerun the tests.

Finding Allocations

Side note: There is a new testing approach: TBDD = Test n' Benchmark Driven Development.

On the first run we got this result:

$ go test -run=😶 -bench=Benchmark_WithInitStoreByToken .
Benchmark_WithInitStoreByToken-4      100000         17297 ns/op        9112 B/op        203 allocs/op
ok   2.569s

Quite shocking to use 203 allocs for just figuring out the current store view within a request.

Now compile your tests into an executable binary:

$ go test -c

This compilation reduces the noise in the below output trace log.

$ GODEBUG=allocfreetrace=1 ./store😶 -test.bench=Benchmark_WithInitStoreByToken -test.benchtime=10ms 2>trace.log

Now open the trace.log file (around 26MB) and investigate all the allocations and refactor your code. Once finished you can achieve results like:

$ go test -run=😶  -bench=Benchmark_WithInitStoreByToken .
Benchmark_WithInitStoreByToken-4     2000000           826 ns/op         128 B/op          5 allocs/op
ok   2.569s
