    Backend server for the TUI-Journal app

    I just wanted to share my journey with Golang. Four days ago, I started learning Golang, and today I'm thrilled to announce that I have built a basic semi production-ready web server called Journal-Web-Server!

  • tui-journal

    Your journal app if you live in a terminal

    As I wanted to build a robust back-end for my TUI-Journal app, I knew I needed the right tool for the job, and Golang proved to be the perfect choice for web servers.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • Gin

    Gin is a HTTP web framework written in Go (Golang). It features a Martini-like API with much better performance -- up to 40 times faster. If you need smashing performance, get yourself some Gin.

    For building my web server, I chose to use the Gin framework as the foundation of my app. It was incredibly easy to understand and work with, and I was pleasantly surprised by how seamlessly it integrated with writing unit tests for the server. To handle the database, I leveraged the power of go-sqlite and migrate for efficient SQL queries and migrations. These libraries proved to be both powerful and user-friendly, making the development process a breeze.

  • go-sqlite3

    sqlite3 driver for go using database/sql
