The #1 Enterprise solution for making sure you remember all your shit.
packingdb is web scale.
Go env setup
Setting up Go is a little more complex than it needs to be. First, set the GOPATH environment variable to point to the root of this repository.
You'll need the promptui module: (TODO: make this versioned!)
go get -v github.com/manifoldco/promptui
Then, you should be able to build and run the program:
go install github.com/ywwg/packingdb && ./bin/packingdb
I created a little shell script that does this, hopefully it works!
Other helpful go utils
You may also want Guru and Godef if you want to set up Eclipse:
export GOPATH="$(pwd)" go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/guru go get github.com/npat-efault/godef go install golang.org/x/tools/cmd/guru go install github.com/npat-efault/godef
Then you can point your eclipse project to those binaries.
packingdb has two binaries. An older non-interactive program and a newer promptui-based interactive program. The prompt-based program is much easier to use.
To start a new packing list, just specify a filename where the data will be stored:
packingdb will ask you some basic questions about the trip, like the number of nights and the minimum and maximum predicted temperatures. Then you'll be presented with a list of all the configured Properties, and you can scroll through the list and select which ones apply to the current trip.
You can change all of these parameters later from the main menu.
You can also edit the packfile yourself. It's simple csv.
