Gournay is a URL shrinker written in Go.

## Try it

  [http://gournay.herokuapp.com/](http://gournay.herokuapp.com/)

### building locally

    go build gournay.go

When pushing to heroku, the app is compiled. When adding new dependencies, remember to run `godep save`.

### running in development

    # psql
    create database gournay_development;
    create table entries (
      url varchar(255),
      hash varchar(5)
    );

Local postgres connection string like this, for a database called `gournay_development`:

    export DATABASE_URL="user=andy host=localhost dbname=gournay_development sslmode=disable"

    ./gournay
    # port is 5000 by default

### Heroku

Details on using the [Heroku buildpack](http://stackoverflow.com/a/16655766/126688).

  * Create a heroku instance with the custom buildpack
  * Enable the postgres addon with: `heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql`
  * Heroku binds to a random port, can't hard-code the port. [details](http://stackoverflow.com/a/15693371/126688)
  * connect to heroku psql and set up database: `heroku pg:psql`. Find out database name from connection string, and create the tables.
