Go R1 Day 4
- In the last week some more Pluralsight Go (Nigel’s courses are always stellar)
- I’ve done some odd work as had time in between last update, but nothing structured. Might continue with
learn-go-with-testsbut also came across exercism and might tackle that soon as well.
- Setup new project in Visual Studio Codespaces
- Used Serverless Framework to generate
aws-go-sdkresources for AWS SSM Secrets Manager
- Grabbed SSM Secrets manager output and used to create a POST request for authorization token
- Used DumpRequest to pretty print output for debugging purpose
- Hung my head in shame at my copy pasta project 😀
- Realized half of the battle is just getting my lambda debugging effort running locally. Not exactly the easiest starter project.
- Need to master different request types. PowerShell makes this easy with Invoke-RestMethod and object construction. I found that the
Postmethod wasn’t appropriate as I wanted to control custom headers. This required me to use a different approach, which I ended up doing with
- Not sure in a Go Playground sample to test and echo a post request. Thinking if no service that does this might try creating a Go routine to accept the request locally and echo for the purpose of a demo. Any suggestions welcome.
- Identified i really need better understanding of the godoc libraries as would help a lot. Vscode intellisense even in codespaces isn’t performing great, so I’m not getting that help that would really expedite discovery as a beginner. I might give my EAP Goland install a try and see if it helps.
- Successfully included
- Successfully submitted request for authorization token and got response back into a struct, something that as a newbie I found a major win 🎉 using
arreferring to a pointer another win for me as new to pointers) being passed in like below:
