  • Build / Makefile templates for Go monorepo?
    2 projects | /r/golang | 10 May 2023
    I created for that and we are very happy with it for a very complex build system. Give it a try if you want.
  • Is your makefile supposed to be a justfile?
    17 projects | /r/golang | 2 Mar 2023
    May I present my alternative It is kind of similar to magefile but provides some other features similar to cake build and inbuilt tools useful for devops. And also it is a plain go program so no magic compilation in the background. It replaced basically 100 bash files in our rather complex build/deploy setup. Sometimes a declarative approach is just not enough.
  • Unpopular opinion: CI/CD engines are an awful idea
    6 projects | /r/devops | 4 Feb 2023
    I have used many CI systems on large scale and to be honest, Jenkins is still my favorite. Everything you need is provided and works. You have 100% control over the workflow. With code. All those declarative yaml based ones need sooooo much workarounds to get more complex workflows to run and often you are just stuck with a less optimal solution. Beside the build workflow, we do not write any build logic in the ci engine but use external code runners instead. For .Net I used Cake or Nuke build for example but now my absolute preference for build logic is go. There we use a task runner like gotaskr. This helps having the build logic centralized and usually you can also run different build tasks locally to debug and test them. Also with go, you don‘t need any runtime to run the logic. Just build the task runner once and then you can copy the binary anywhere (eg for parallel build tasks) and just run it. This is optimal to integrate it in Docker base builds so you don‘t need to change the base image at all.
  • Task runner like go-task/task, but in pure Go, no external DSLs
    5 projects | /r/golang | 2 Feb 2023
    May I present my solution: Heavily inspired by cake build. It has no compile magic anywhere. Just write your go file and run the tasks in it. Or build it and re-use it in a ci for example.
  • Utility library, most gopher way for namespaces/packages

    Now if someone wants to use the gitlab tools, you need to import and then you can access all the stuff via This is ok but there are often other packages which have the same import name like go-gitlab. So I need to constantly rename one of them.

  • Any open source projects need help ?
    19 projects | /r/golang | 7 Oct 2022
    I'm a go youngling that tried to create a task runner (inspired by cake build for .net) in go as an alternative to magefile. What I would like is to get some feedback about how it is implemented and if there are go-principles that are violated and where the code should be improved. So if you want to do some reviewing, feel free to have a look at
