provides a way to atomically create or replace a file or symbolic link
The renameio Go package provides a way to atomically create or replace a file or symbolic link.
Atomicity vs durability: renameio concerns itself only with atomicity, i.e. making sure applications never see unexpected file content (a half-written file, or a 0-byte file).
As a practical example, consider https://manpages.debian.org/: if there is a power outage while the site is updating, we are okay with losing the manpages which were being rendered at the time of the power outage. They will be added in a later run of the software. We are not okay with having a manpage replaced by a 0-byte file under any circumstances, though.
