Nothing too earth shattering this time around. Hopefully everyone is doing well. If you are a command-line fan, there are a couple of links for you. As always, let me know if there are any fun free or cheap tools or services that you want me to include or investigate.
How-to guide for embedding a web interface in your Go app. A tutorial that demonstrates embedding a web UI into a Go app. I’ve always liked Go for the ease of building single executables to distribute. Now you can even embed regular files into your executable meaning you could package up a full static web UI and serve that along with an API that it can use. Not quite an Electron app, but in some cases even more useful.
A tool for writing better scripts. Created by Google, this command line helper can be used instead of bash to create shell-style scripts. It sits on top of Node.js and provides a bunch of convenient functionality. If you’ve ever written a shell script in any language, you should definitely check this out.
Universal command-line interface for SQL databases. Inspired by PostgreSQL’s `psql` tool, this command-line powerhouse can connect to a large number of different databases, including MS SQL Server and some non-relational ones as well. If you need to work with multiple database types, this could be a handy tool. Or it might just be a better (or only) option for some of the databases it works with.
