Holiday goodie bag

Hamilton, Bermuda

Thanks for bearing with the lack of issues over the past couple of weeks. It is a busy time of year, made even busier when I decided to learn Go by using it to complete solutions to the Advent of Code challenge. My need for sleep won out, and I am not still doing that, but my newfound love for Go continues. Expect more Go-themed links and tools in the future.

This will be the last issue of 2019, but I will resume in 2020 with more links to fun and useful things to let you develop cheap. Have a safe and happy holiday season.

Watermill is a Go library for working efficiently with message streams. It is intended for building event driven applications, enabling event sourcing, RPC over messages, sagas and basically whatever else comes to your mind. Message based and async apps can be hard to create and this library aims to make it all a bit easier.

Scully: the Angular Static Site Generator

The Angular community now has their very own static site generator. I’ve covered static site generators before, and where React had Next.js and Vue had Nuxt.js, Angular didn’t have a good solution. Until now. Based on schematics, Scully will turn your Angular-based site/blog into a pile of HTML files.
