A Gopher named Gophy

If you are just starting out with Go, head over to the Go Playground and concentrate on figuring out how my little Go Story works. It’s about a Gopher, named Gophy who joint the Gophers but lost his identity in the process. Once you get how he gets his identity back you’ll be golden. Here is the code: package main import "fmt" type I interface{} var gophers map[uint]I = make(map[uint]I) type gopher struct { Name string } func main() { g := AddToGophers("Goghy") fmt.


Features: You can define your config items in your application as a struct. You can save a json template of your struct You can save runtime modifications to the config Docs: import "" func Load(filename string, o interface{}) (err error) Load gets your config from the json file, and fills your struct with the option func Save(filename string, o interface{}) (err error) Save will save your struct to the given filename, this is a good way to create a json template

Sometimes I fall in love with code

I don’t use this, since I need often more but isn’t this just need? package main import "log" const debug debugging = true // or flip to false type debugging bool func (d debugging) Printf(format string, args ...interface{}) { d { log.Printf(format, args...) } } func main() { debug.Printf("foo %d %.2f", 42, 12.7) }

Hugo, a static website generator

Just a couple of days ago I posted about jkl, a static website generator written in Go, and based on Jekyll. While setting up jkl, I stumbled over Hugo! I was impressed at first sight with Hugo. Since then I have reconfigured my site to work with Hugo. I didn’t have to fiddle with the Hugo code, everything just works, and it really does most everything that comes to mind. This whole website thing has been bothering me for a long time; and finally I am a happy champer.
