Story: Writing Scripts with Go

Story: Writing Scripts with Go

This is a story about how I tried to use Go for scripting. In this story, I’ll discuss the need for a Go script, how we would expect it to behave and the possible implementations; During the discussion I’ll deep dive to scripts, shells, and shebangs. Finally, we’ll discuss solutions that will make Go scripts work.

Why Go is good for scripting?

While python and bash are popular scripting languages, C, C++ and Java are not used for scripts at all, and some languages are somewhere in between.

Load pillar files in the top file based on the grain
# For each directory that can have pillar files
{% for root in opts['pillar_roots']['base'] -%}
# Set a variable to the path to check
{% set mygrain_sls = '{0}/{1}.sls'.format(root, grains['mygrain']) -%}
# Check to see if the file exists, if so, include that pillar file.
{% if salt['file.file_exists'](mygrain_sls) %}
'service_group:{{ grains["mygrain"] }}':
- match: grain
- {{ grains['mygrain'] }}

let's keep this our secret. If the talk hasn't started yet, please don't tell those around you about this page. sure, hint and all... but it's more fun if they find it themselves. Also, don't tweet about this until I ask you to (and yes, I'll ask you to. Pretty please? can you? oh, you're the best. I knew you would.).

I do promise I'll tell everyone eventually, but for now you can feel good you found this page before your friend Bob.
