Greetings, I am just gettings started with Elastic beats development.
I have been developing with Golang for a few years and was excited to try to develop my first Helloworldbeat. I allocated a couple hours to the task.
I am underwhelmed, specifically on the getting started and build aspects.
I am put off by having to have python,pip,virtualenv,mage/make ecosystemusing govendor and the whole code generation approach; and it does not just work out of the box.
I am not going to supply details here now, and this may seem like a rant, but I wonder if there is, or at least a plan, for a native pure Golang based approach.
Maybe this is mostly a documentation problem that simply targets non Go purists? I really just want a Golang API doc and using go modules;none of th make,python stuff.
Can anyone lift my spirits and shed some light?
I'd be happy to contrib back some improvements if that will help, but I thought I'd start here.
