Over Christmas break I spent time learning Go and built a dispatch server for CaptainCore. The purpose for a dispatch server was to remove some rough edges between the GUI and the CLI. I wrote an in-depth post about building that here: https://anchor.host/writing-a-dispatch-api-backend-server-in-go/. Also made a quick video overview of it here: https://vimeo.com/308891714. 🎄💻📝
I am really happy that the dispatch server actually works. I’ve had the idea to build something like this for a while, however I just needed a few weeks to wrap my head around Go. I finally had an “aha” moment where things in the language started to makes sense.
