It has been while with GDEC and I found many different problems with it. That has led me to think about how to do the next GDEC revision. Right now, my current pains are: Getting the GUI setup for Windows seems impossible using the current technologies. Code is isolated between container and host (biggest pain). Lack of documentation on how to incorporate it in one’s workflow. However, there are some new things I will try in the next iteration.
This post is to announce the release of GDEC: the Golang Development Environment Container. Currently, it sets up a Docker container with Visual Studio Code and a Go extension. The capabilities of the Go extension are what initial drew me to even use Visual Studio Code. The visual debugger reminds me of the days I used Visual Studio for C++ debugging. However, I already had my vim-go setup (although it is outdated, and there are more awesome features available now).
