Golang Gin & Gitpod

Fiddling with the Dev experience of Golang gin within Gitpod

Based on gitpod-io/go-gin-app


  • Prefer the pattern of combining this with cobra
  • Server rendered HTML is pretty straightforward
  • Returning simple JSON pretty straightforward
  • Can be combined with GRPC + Proto
  • What about swagger for generating the modules?
  • Considerations about how to organize the elements (cli, server, routes, models, database, etc)
  • What about logging for this?
  • Gitpod has occassionally issues with the import of gin
  • References for things like templates/ at the top level is nice
  • Log while running is excellent

Overall positive.
