    Project mention: Show HN: A Full-Stack Web Framework Written in Go | | 2022-05-13

    Sure, it's actually been a long journey since PHP.

    I switched from PHP to Node about 11 years ago. I was probably one of the first 100 Node.js developers. My biggest contribution there was creating

    Go spoils me because it "just works". The best way I can explain it is when I'm stuck on something in Go, it's almost always my bad, not something that Go is doing poorly. This is in contrast to the Node.js ecosystem where it feels like half of the problems I run into shouldn't be my responsibility.

    I relate a lot to this post by @kburke:

    My transition from Node.js to Go happened because I was working solo on and I kept running into issues with the message broker. It was using the most popular RabbitMQ library for Node.js, yet was still super flaky.

    About 6 years ago, I was chatting with TJ Holowaychuk and he kept singing Go's praises. One holiday I decided to rewrite the message broker in Go. I got it into production in 3 days and didn't have anymore problems with it. That set me on the Go journey :)

    There is the scraper struct that spawns goroutine. Then, each goroutine scraps the web URL using go colly, and the structured MCQ questions are served from API endpoints.

  • instagram-scraper

    Project mention: How To download Saves from instagram? | | 2022-04-08

    There was a FOSS program that worked. The problem is, if they detect anything remotely like scraping, they'll ban your account. I don't know what a good "pause" amount of time to set in the program would be to get around their flags. I think this was the one I used before (and got my account banned.) And then if you don't login, they make you wait a really long time between downloads and you can't access some information (like your saves.)
