Dev is a simple command-line tool to make developing Golang apps in Docker containers easy.
### How it works:
- Starts containers to isolate your development environment and code
- Uses (http://goconvey.co)[go-convey] to set up automated testing on save
- Exposes the go-convey web interface so you can monitor your test status
- Creates convenience commands for installing dependencies and getting to a shell in your development container
### Why use this?
Previously, I used Vagrant for isolated development environments that mimic production infrastructure. Since switching to containerized applications, I wanted an easy way to isolate development code and take advantage of using containers for other infrastructure, just like it runs in production.
# Create a basic fig.yml environment for your dev environment and a
# data-only container for your code
>> dev init
# Start your development infrastructure
>> dev up
# Want to get a shell in your dev container?
>> dev shell
# Get to the test status web interface?
>> dev web
# See the output of your tests in the terminal?
>> dev test
