Gobuffalo reflex Setup

- 500 Words
I’m using reflex to automate my testing and linting as I’m working on changes with gobuffalo. I’m also using golangci-lint as my meta linter for golang. Whenever I save a file in my editor (vim or vscode) then my tests and linting is automatically performed. Installation Install reflex: go get -u github.com/cespare/reflex Install golangci-lint using one of its releases. This gets 1.15.0: curl -sfL https://install.goreleaser.com/github.com/golangci/golangci-lint.sh | sh -s -- -b $(go env GOPATH)/bin v1.

Gobuffalo Kubernetes Deploy

I wanted to deploy gobuffalo on kubernetes using gitlab-ci and found several guides but still had to peice together some info on my own and wanted to share that in case anyone else is looking to do the same thing. I initially started with Gitlab Auto DevOps but it came up a bit inflexible and tricky to use for some of my use cases. The biggest one being that I wanted to pass in build-args into my docker build so that I could pass in API key secrets.

Terraform Digitalocean Kubernetes

DigitalOcean recently launched managed kubernetes on their cloud which was really interesting to me. Doing some rough math it looked around 30-50% cheaper than the big three (AWS, GCP, Azure). DigitalOcean is considerably simpler than AWS which is great for small teams like ours. In addition I really liked the idea of kubernetes instead of vendor lock in like fargate or elasticbeanstalk because I could more easily switch to another cloud provider or even use two of them in the future.
