Go by Example

Content and build toolchain for Go by Example, a site that teaches Go via annotated example programs.

Overview

The Go by Example site is built by extracting code and comments from source files in examples and rendering them via the templates into a static public directory. The programs implementing this build process are in tools, along with some vendor'd dependencies in vendor.

The built public directory can be served by any static content system. The production site uses S3 and CloudFront, for example.

Building

To build the site you'll need Go and Python installed. Run:

$ go get github.com/russross/blackfriday
$ tools/build
$ open public/index.html

To build continuously in a loop:

$ tools/build-loop

Publishing

To upload the site:

$ gem install aws-sdk
$ export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=...
$ export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=...
$ tools/upload-site
