Protect your apps from supply chain attacks


Package wire contains directives for Wire code generation. For an overview of working with Wire, see the user guide at The directives in this package are used as input to the Wire code generation tool. The entry point of Wire's analysis are injector functions: function templates denoted by only containing a call to Build. The arguments to Build describes a set of providers and the Wire code generation tool builds a directed acylic graph of the providers' output types. The generated code will fill in the function template by using the providers from the provider set to instantiate any needed types.

# Wire: Automated Initialization in Go

[![Build Status](][travis]

Wire is a code generation tool that automates connecting components using
[dependency injection][]. Dependencies between components are represented in
Wire as function parameters, encouraging explicit initialization instead of
global variables. Because Wire operates without runtime state or reflection,
code written to be used with Wire is useful even for hand-written

For an overview, see the [introductory blog post][].
