Macro is for micro. Macro is a version of micro with ALL the plugins built in.
Many people seem to want a prebuilt version of micro with all the plugins. Or they just don't want to deal with the hassle of managing which plugins to add. Macro builds in all the plugins. Anything in go-plugins will be included in macro.
Note: Macro as micro compiles to an 86mb binary and has significant memory overhead.
How it works
Macro creates a
plugins.go file in the top level repo which is then imported by the binary. This is generated very simply by a shell script also in the top directory called
plugins.sh. The script is run on any rebuild of the repository.
Macro still returns a
go get github.com/micro/macro/cmd/micro
For go-micro aka go-macro usage
