To access Icom Radio remotely (over the internet), Icom sells the RS-BA1 software. During the setup, I stumbled over a few, mainly networking-related problems. In this post, I describe the symptoms, the tools I used for network debugging (on Windows), and the possible solutions.
Earlier this year, Github released their workflow automation tool Actions. Github claims to provide nothing less than * world-class* CI/CD with Actions. After its release in Autumn 2019, I took the chance and migrated the multi-stage CI Pipeline of remoteAudio to Github Actions.
One of Golang’s strengths is that it supports cross-compiling to any common Operating System and CPU architecture out of the box. However, that’s only true for projects written in pure Go. Normally that’s not a problem, but sometimes we depend on 3rd-party C libraries… and that’s when things tend to get complicated.
In this post, I will explain how you can cross-compile your cgo project for multiple operating systems and architectures in a clear and structured manner.
