Building a Go Web API with the New Digital Ocean App Platform
See the original posting on DZone Python
Recently, Digital Ocean announced theyâre entering the PaaS market with their new application platform. Theyâve hosted virtual machines (droplets) and Kubernetes based services for years, but now theyâre creating a platform thatâs a simple point and click to get an application up and running.
So I decided to try it. In this tutorial, weâre going to build an application on that platform. I will use Go to make a small web API and have it backed by an SQLite database. Iâll show you the steps required, and weâll see just how easy it is (or isnât) to deploy applications on the platform.
