Golang under Cygwin

The current article I have to write by two reasons. First - the Go language developed by Google becoming popular little by little. Second - there is NO accurate information about how to setup Go under Cygwin.

Go also commonly referred to as Golang, is a open source programming language developed at Google in 2007 by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson. Designed primarily for systems programming, it is a compiled, statically typed language in the tradition of C and C++, with garbage collection, various safety features and CSP-style concurrent programming features added.”

UNIX pass under Cygwin

For any IT system administrators and specialists there is a headache to remember a lot of working passwords in daily work. As you probably know is safe to use the different ones for better security. There are many password managers which collect and encrypt your passwords locally or remotely. The best way if your password manager is simple and follow the Unix philosophy. With pass, each password lives inside of a GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG, GPG) encrypted file whose file name is the title of the website or resource that requires the password.

PostgreSQL under Cygwin

As I wrote below I use Cygwin with Windows platform to achieve the Busi-do 😏. Yeah, I’m not looking for easy ways, really. To use the Cygwin is not easy way, but it really works for many tasks. If you work with databases there are two ways. First is to setup database directly into the Windows, the second is setup database into the Cygwin. The first way is easiest one, but may NOT working if you develop inside Cygwin.
