CURL to GO

CURL to GO

Quite often we are looking for a quick way to make a request in GO, and we have working query tested in CURL. Sometimes it’s problematic to “move” all queries to GO, and build up whole query using client, protocol and so on. From the author of my beloved Caddy server there is a tool called curl-to-Go which basically does what is says. Just paste your CURL request and GO lang code to implement that.

Later on, when HTML5 became a industry standard, our live become some much easier. In the theory VIDEO tag solves all out issues. When browser can handle webm (Chrome family) we play webm.
