Honeycomb Beeline for Go

Build Status GoDoc

This package makes it easy to instrument your Go app to send useful events to Honeycomb, a service for debugging your software in production.


The beeline is written with an eye towards a fairly recent set of dependent packages. Some of the dependencies have changed their API interface over the past few years (eg goji, uuid, net/http) so you may need to upgrade to get to a place that works.

  • go 1.9+ - the context package moved into the core library and is used extensively by the beeline to make events available to the call stack
  • github.com/google/uuid v0.2+ - the signature for NewRandom started returning UUID, error
  • github.com/goji/goji v2.0+ - they started using contexts in net/http instead of their own
