Building a Social Network #20: Mention Notification Fanout #golang #sql

Part 20 of building a social network for anime and manga fans. CockroachDB as the SQL database and Go as the back-end language. When creating a post or comment, we extract all the @mentions and notify each user but the creator of the content. This is done thanks to the mentions lib by Geofrey Ernest. It is not documented on the repo, but this lib accepts a list of “terminators”. That’s why I added some punctuation. Note that I don’t plan to support hashtags for now. Repo: #golang #sql
