A collection of simple golang tools

14 April 2020 09:00

In a previous job I wrote some simple utilities which were helpful for continuous-integration pipelines. Most of these were very very simple, for example:

  • Find all *.json files, and validate them.
  • Find all *.yaml files, and validate them.
  • Run all the tests in a given directory, execute them one by one.
    • But stop if any single test failed.
    • run-parts does this on Debian GNU/Linux systems, but on CentOS there is no -exit-on-error flag.
    • Which is the sole reason I had to re-implement that tool. Sigh.
  • Parse PHP-files and look for comments that were bogus.

Each of these simple tools were run of the mill shell-scripts, or simple binaries. I've been putting together a simple deployable tool which lets you run them easily, so here it is:

The idea is that you install the tool, then run the commands by specify the appropriate sub-command:

sysbox validate-yaml [path/to/find/files/beneath]

Of course if you symlink validate-yaml to sysbox you don't need to prefix with the name - so this is just like busybox in this regard.

Might be interesting to some.
