I just finished my first backend with Go using Iris framework but now I need to put it on production so I can use it in the Slack app I built.
In order to test the code locally I only run my file with
go run main.go and
ngrok to test with the Slack API, it's working and it's finished.
I have a droplet with Ubuntu 16.04.3 and other one with Centos 7... I was searching for something like
pm2 for go, running the server and using nginx to point that port but I read that with Go it's different and I have to use something like this https://fabianlee.org/2017/05/21/golang-running-a-go-binary-as-a-systemd-service-on-ubuntu-16-04/
But that's a very long configuration for a simple server and my questions are:
- Is this the usual way to config the APIs with Go?
- Apart of DigitalOcean, do you recommend to use a different service to run my API?
This is really my first time with Go and I just want to learn more, I am a backend developer with Laravel and NodeJS.
