Configure Ubuntu to work as GO web server

Картинки по запросуI’m often creating go apps or services using Digital Ocean droplets with Ubuntu, that’s why I decided to create a script to automate configuration process.


The script is doing following:

  1. Installs and configures firewall (ufw, allows only ports 80, 443 & 22)
  2. Installs git (required by go)
  3. Installs mysql and secures it with mysql_install_db
  4. Installs the latest version of GO (1.7.5), configures go environment (PATH, GOPATH)
  5. Installs go application from public git repository, yours or my demo (development for private is in progress) with ‘go get’
  6. Configures go app to work as a service (add config into /etc/init.d), starts the service
  7. Installs and configures nginx to work as proxy for go app

Script can be started directly from github:

bash <(curl -s

Check the script and find more information here:

Using GO + Sublime Text + GoSublime + GAE

Sometimes easy things are not so obvious as they really are. If you are using GO language together with Sublime Text and want to have in place such features as code completion, you obviously will start using GoSublime plugin. If you are using GO in GAE (Google Application Engine) for your developments than you need small tuning to make it work.

  1. First of all, make sure  GOROOT and GOPATH are set in your environment (or in Sublime Text settings) and pointing to the GAE version of GO
  2. Go to GOROOT/bin folder and make a symlink for “goapp” naming it “go”
  3. Go to GOROOT/pkg folder and make a symlink for “darwin_amd64_appengine” naming it “darwin_amd64”
