Golang server - standard lib or some other libraries?

What do YOU use?

I saw many tutorials on Gorilla/mux, but why not standard lib? Is Gorilla much different from standard lib, anyway?

Getting a Golang job / getting contributors, should be taking into account as well.

In my latest project, I had to use Gin, when I had to go more complex. However, is it not idiomatic? What about Fiber?

I use Echo by Labstack. It's still technically in beta but it's used in production as it's quite stable.
