		hostname, err := os.Hostname()
		if err != nil {

		fmt.Fprintf(w, "Hello from host: %q The current  time is %q", hostname,time.Now().String())

	log.Fatal(http.ListenAndServe(":8080", nil))


Run and Unit test it

go run main.go
access the localhost:8080


FROM golang:1.12.0-alpine3.9
RUN mkdir /app
ADD . /app
RUN go build -o main .
CMD ["/app/main"]

Build Docker Image

docker build -t golang-web-app .
-- after above step done verify the status of docker image
docker images
