I wrote a short article on how to optimize local Go - Kubernetes development with Skaffold and BuildKit

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/golang

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • buildkit

    concurrent, cache-efficient, and Dockerfile-agnostic builder toolkit

    That's a nice topic! There aren't to many great articles on that sadly so I really appreciate it. My setup currently is using devspace since after trying skaffold I found it to be much more intuitiv to use and the file sync option can also be nice at times although it needs some further setup. The buildkit.flags are.great, for anyone interested here's the complete documentation on all possible flags which also includes support for ssh mount etc. The only thing I'm still struggling with is remote caching of image layers for ci CD. I'm currently using the buildkit remote worker but I feel like there could still be some optimizations.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
