Using Blogdown to blog about Golang

For those of you interested I am blogging about Go using the R blogdown package. It works straight out of the box.

Basic example:

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {

	fmt.Println("Hello World")
}
## Hello World

another example:

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"math"
)

func foo(x int) int {
	return x * x
}

func main() {
	for i := 0; i < 10; i++ {
		v := float64(foo(i))
		switch {
		case math.Mod(v, 2) == 0:
			fmt.Printf("%v is Even!!!\n", v)
		default:
			fmt.Printf("%v is Odd!!!\n", v)
		}
	}
}
## 0 is Even!!!
## 1 is Odd!!!
## 4 is Even!!!
## 9 is Odd!!!
## 16 is Even!!!
## 25 is Odd!!!
## 36 is Even!!!
## 49 is Odd!!!
## 64 is Even!!!
## 81 is Odd!!!

Blogdown is based on Hugo framework which is actually written in Go and support mulitple programming languages which you can mix and match:
