Writing a ~400 Line Git Client That Can Push Itself to GitHub — A few years ago, Ben wrote a Python program to be enough of a git client that it could create a repository and push itself to GitHub. Now, as a way to compare Go vs Python’s scripting chops, he’s built the same idea in Go. He compares error handling approaches, performance and verbosity, amongst other things.
