Automatically Reloading Your Golang App

I’m a huge fan of Grunt and love my JavaScript workflow with unit tests (end to end testing on occassion) and live-reload. Sure, I could use Gulp as well, but I try not to get hung up on every new flavor of the week. I’m sure I’ll get into that good stuff sometime soon and will be sure to blog about it. Great, but what about Go? I love Go and the tooling around it is aswesome, but I’m missing Grunt.

Web Scraping with Go vs. Node.js

It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it. Let’s face it, data on the web is not standardized nor is it clean. Sometimes we need to scrape this unstructured data to enhance user experience or direct people toward information and that’s a problem. Fortunately we have more APIs these days and many sites are also adapting Open Graph tags, making better use of meta tags to help this process.
