I’m currently validating the use of the OpenAI API as a cheaper and more powerful alternative to the Google Translate API. I hope my plans succeed and there will be a new GoBlog plugin with some AI power soon. ✨ So far the OpenAI API is quite easy to use, I thought it would be more complicated. Philipp is already using the API for his diary, another cool idea (which I may copy someday).

I have this on my to-do list for quite some time already: More documentation for my blogging software GoBlog. GoBlog is still changing from time to time and probably needs a bit of refactoring before creating a release. But a first step to offer more documentation is adding an example configuration, which I just did. I hope this helps all those curious people who wanted to try GoBlog. Feel free to contact me with questions!

I admit it is the first time I am writing code that is almost 100% covered by unit tests. But it’s such a good feeling to have small, concise methods whose functionality you can rely on. Even before I have a running application, I know that what is already written will work. And unit testing with Go is really fun.
