go-facter

go-facter is a loose implementation of Puppet Labs facter in golang. The main target are platforms where there isn't possible or feasible to install Ruby, eg. CoreOS. Also, you can run it in Docker Container and still get data from the Host itself.

In theory, go-facter can be used as a library of sort to build custom facts.
