Go With A Vue

Chris Berry Go, Vue 1 Comment

Last year I blogged about creating a Lean Mean Vue Machine called Quotes on Demand. The application was a fully-featured CRUD application served from a NodeJS server and had a self-contained VueJS front end. Since then I’ve also added a Python version of the same API.

But wouldn’t it be a nice test to see if that same Vue application could switch over to another API – say, something like a Golang application server?

In this post, we will create a Golang application server that will have 100% parity to an existing NodeJS web application. This will enable an existing VueJS front end to connect to the application with no additional code changes in the user interface code.

Go To SQL

In between projects here at Keyhole, I’ve been tasked with applying a relational database access and mapping framework in the Go language.

In this post, I go step by step to create a Postgres relational database, then perform CRUD operations against it in the Go language.

I won’t get into the specifics of configuring Go in this blog, but you can check it out yourself here – https://golang.org/. Additionally, Keyhole’s very own David Pitt wrote an excellent primer on the subject here – https://keyholesoftware.com/2019/09/26/go-on-the-fly/.

Go “On The Fly”

People that know me, know that I love to fly fish and tie flies. I made up the saying “Time flies when you’re tying flies.” It is true, just like when you are trying to solve a programming problem, time flies.

Over the past few years, we at Keyhole have utilized Docker (with assorted technologies) and have gotten up to speed on the Hyperledger blockchain framework. Something that all of these technologies have in common is the Go language. Go is the language used to implement Docker, Hyperledger, OpenShift, and many other system-level applications.

Personally, I like to peek under the hood to better understand the tools I’m using. That led me to learning about the Go language. And in my opinion, the best way to learn a language is to build something.

So, I built an application for fly tying videos. There are numerous fly tying tutorials on YouTube, so I built an application that allows them to be organized into virtual fly boxes and types.

In this blog, I will introduce you to the Go language. We’ll go over some of the key language concepts by walking through how the https://flytyerworld.com server-side API is implemented using Go.
