It seems like I’m currently a bit obsessed with creating new Go-based projects. Yesterday, I announced my new Telegram channel, where it’s possible to receive notifications about new entries on my blog (I created another channel for the German posts too). First, I tried to use IFTTT, but somehow IFTTT’s behavior is a bit unpredictable and I thought it’s probably easier to just code my own solution. It was only a task of about an hour, but now it works the way I want it to work.
What I like about Go: It’s quick and easy to create small programs, including support for Docker and everything. For example, today I developed a minimal URL shortener that stores the entries in a SQLite database: https://jlel.se/goshort
Now I have finally found a good use for the domain I recently registered. 😄
