Buffalo to Build Awesome WebsitesGetting Started with
Go in 5 Minutes, episode 21.
How do you build a website with Go? For a while, we all just cobbled something together with the standard library, Gorilla Mux, and so on. We had to figure all this stuff out for ourselves, and more!
- A database ORM
- Database migrations
- An asset pipeline
- Having a good development environment
- Compiling for production?
- Dockerizing the app
- Background jobs
That's a long list! But other languages have good frameworks to handle all of it. I love Go, but before Buffalo I wouldn't have chosen it to build a full-on website.
In other words, we didn't have a "Rails for Go" before Buffalo.
Buffalo is now one of the most popular frameworks today for building
awesome full-stack web applications with Go, because it's a framework like Rails! You don't need to drop back to Ruby/PHP/Python land to build beautiful website in Go anymore
