How to organise a Go project

gopherSome fellow developers, using Go for the first time, recently asked me how to organise a Go project and for some high-level guidance on programming using the language.

I thought the most effective way to answer this question was to build a simple Go HTTP service, that provides a key-value store. It also includes a README, outlining my most important guidelines for Go programming. You can check it out here.

  1. What are your thoughts on the variety of tools available to manage third party dependencies in the vendor dir?

    1. Hi Akshay — good to hear from you. ­čÖé

      I don’t have much experience with those tools. The InfluxDB team moved to godeps shortly after I left. Up until then we didn’t manage dependencies.

      Go 1.6 does include support for vendoring, so I expect to enable that at some point for rqlite. But no practical experience yet.
