TLWI Golang #54

Hey there, fellow techies! Ready for another dose of programming goodness? We got you covered! 🙌

First up, have you ever wished you could see the output of your curl -v command in dazzling colors? Well, your prayers have been answered! Introducing curl-versus, the CLI tool that gives you the same verbose output but with a rainbow of colors to make it more readable!

And if you're looking to level up your Golang skills, we've got the perfect article for you. In part 4 of his "Learning Go by Examples" series, our resident Gopher expert will teach you how to create a bot for the popular chat application, Discord, using the Go programming language. Be the envy of your chat buddies with your custom-made bot!

Next on the list, we have an informative article on Go control flow. Specifically, you'll learn how to handle panics (not the heart attack kind), and recover from them gracefully with defer statements. Good stuff!

Now, let's talk about security. If you're dealing with JSON web tokens (JWT) in Go, you should definitely check out this community-maintained clone of the jwt-go library. We all know how important security is these days, and this library can help you keep your app secure.

Last but not least, we have a step-by-step guide to help you set up environment variables in your Go project. Creating env variables has never been easier with this helpful tutorial. No more hardcoding sensitive information in your code! Yay for security again! 🔒

That's it for this week, folks. Hope you found something useful in our newsletter. Till next time, happy coding! 💻🚀
