One of the tools that I’ve used in my tutorials to build the development environment, Otto by HashiCorp, is no longer under active development and maintenance.
The scenario for this tutorial is that we have a website with good traffic and want to see real-time what countries our visitors come from.
In my first tutorial I had to make a small hack to start the development environment with Otto on the Windows 7 host machine. The ‘otto dev’ command was crashing because the quotes in the compiled ‘Vagrantfile’ were wrong.
A good samaritan made updated binaries available for Windows (both 32 and 64-bit).
In this tutorial I will show you how to create a virtualized development environment for Go programming language using Otto and how to config and access ‘A Tour of Go’ from the host machine.
I’ve started to write this tutorial after I had some trouble following an article that’s a bit outdated but still a good reference to Laravel and ElasticSearch.
To make things more interesting and challenging I’ve used Otto to build the development environment.
