Look inside
In this liveProject, you will build a backend-only web app for creating and sharing one-time secrets. You’ll create secrets with HTTP API requests to an application containing plain text, and set up a response system that will contain an ID to share with a recipient. Throughout, you’ll make use of the Go standard library package to implement your web application, handle JSON data, and write tests for your web application.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
