Beware of ent (

If you’re using Go, you’ve likely heard of ent. Some Ex-Facebook employee maintaining and developing an open source version of the public version of Meta’s entity framework for Go.

Well there’s a catch.

They sweet talk you in their documentation to use Atlas. Ariga’s Atlas, not the MongoDB one.
But Atlas is a proprietary cloud offering.
There might be a free tier, but who cares?
You have to give other parties access to your schema, if you want to containerize your binary or even if you’re not distributing your schema with your binary. Not just your schema, also your database.

To me that is a breach of trust.

That is “open source” software being used as bait for a lock-in cloud offering.
