So I’ve been writing this prototype. Started with the idea to host this for free on AppEngine and write some go code with Firestore as a database. That turned out OKish but a bit slow. I like Go and I wanted to give it a real shot for web backends but it seems that there’s a lot of pieces that need sorted.
I still like Go and I’ll give it another try. I just want to focus on getting a prototype out and I’m going forward with django on Heroku. Already have auth working and base templates.
Another issue was Firestore. I feel like there’s not enough support for offline dev and testing just yet. Even if I was going with Go I would’ve changed to either mongo or some sql.
Since I’m not launching before New Years I’m changing the topic to goal tracking and sharing rather than new year resolution tracking. All this means is that you can have goals with no end date like daily stuff you want to do or custom start and end dates.
