Feel like I’m going to end up doing more development in Go
@fincham I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing.
I mean, if talking HTTP to things that pass JSON objects around is good, then Go is a pretty good tool!
@fincham I managed to write a discord bot a few years ago, using the community library, that consumes an unreliable website at one end and spits out mostly-reliable updates into a channel, several times an hour.
It's been running for a few years now, and basically doesn't go wrong.
I've completely forgotten how I wrote it by now, all I remember was that I wanted a ring buffer, and getting one working wasn't easy. I probably should have just written it myself.
