Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll implement support for storing secrets in a file rather than memory. You’ll use the Go standard library package to encode and decode JSON objects to and from files, while ensuring your code functions correctly when handling concurrent requests. You’ll also learn how to make HTTP requests from your program, and set up a CLI for your app.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
