Go

Open source project developed by a team at Google and many contributors from the open source community.

Gogland, a Go specialized integrated development environment received new version of Early Access.

What's new?

Main features and fixes:

  • Developers changed the way Gogland indexes libraries inside GOPATH: non-Go files are now ignored, which, depending on your workspace, might make indexing up to twice as fast.
  • the refactorings family now includes two more members: Extract a Constant and Inline a Constant
  • Create Function quick-fix sometimes created functions in a wrong source package
  • The binary wasn’t retained in the output directory after the Run Configuration finished
  • The Debugger stuck on Evaluating when after clicking View to see full content of a variable
  • VCS commits occurring before the Go fmt option (in the Before Commit section) has finished its work
  • Version Control
    • New Git Log actions: Revert and Reword.
    • The new settings let you customize rules applied to commit messages: a blank line between subject and
      body, and the maximum length. Also, there’s a quick fix and the Reformat action inside Commit Message.
    • Shelf tab has been reworked for better performance and ergonomics.
  • Find in Path
    • Preview panel now has a Gutter (a left-hand pane like that in the editor) with line
      numbers, navigation icons, and local change markers.
    • Search results from the same lines are now merged together.
  • Window 10 native UI
  • Improved HiDPI support
  • JavaScript & TypeScript
    • Parameter Hints and Type Info
    • Rearrange Code
    • Move refactoring (across ES6 modules)
    • CSS modules, better Webpack support, code coverage for Mocha, etc
  • The indexing process now can be paused, e.g. if you need your CPU power for an urgent task.
  • Excluding files from search results and indexing by a filename/directory pattern.

Brigade launched

Event-driven scripting tool for Kubernetes released by Microsoft
31 October 2017   439

Microsoft has unveiled its new Open Source development for the needs of DevOps, a Brigade utility designed to run scripts that are executed on a Kubernetes cluster on an event.

The Brigade utility was created by former employees of Deis, a company that Microsoft bought earlier this year. Deis was working on Kubernetes, Helm and Draft. The purpose of Brigade is to "script simple and complex workflows using JavaScript." The solution allows to associate containers by running them sequentially or in parallel and invoking scripts based on time, events in GitHub (also supported by "DockerHub and other popular web services"), push operations in Docker or other triggers. Readme of the project describes it as "a tool for creating pipelines for Kubernetes".

Brigade architecture
Brigade architecture 

Brigade is written in Go and TypeScript / JavaScript, it functions as a service inside Kubernetes. The job (task) in Brigade is a JavaScript script that is interpreted by the product service, which leads to the creation of the necessary resources in Kubernetes. Next, Brigade expects events and performs the corresponding task trigger. It is assumed that the new solution is well suited for the tasks of continuous integration and delivery of applications (CI / CD), tk. simplifies automated testing, assembly of artifacts and releases, management of software deployment.
