For instance, ./localstack_bootstrap/sqs_bootstrap.sh. Don’t forget to run chmod +x ./localstack_bootstrap/sqs_bootstrap.sh. Add this line to your docker-compose.yml: — ./localstack_bootstrap:/docker-entrypoint-initaws.d/. So it could look like this:

Then your queues can be reached by URLs http://localhost:4566/000000000000/queue1 and http://localhost:4566/000000000000/queue2.

Integration tests with testcontainers-go

Here is the go library that simplifies integration tests with docker containers — https://github.com/testcontainers/testcontainers-go. That’s how you can use it to test sql — https://github.com/testcontainers/testcontainers-go/blob/master/docs/examples/cockroachdb.md. Project documentation — https://golang.testcontainers.org/features/docker_compose/ The idea is to prepare the environment, build your app, then make requests and check the DB state.

Postgres in docker: random «unique violation» errors

While running postgres in docker (for development, of course), from time to time I just run into errors like «Duplicate Key Value Violates Unique Constraint».
