Why We Chose to Write Our CLI in Go

Currently, Cronally does not have a web UI. Instead, we chose to focus on a CLI for a number reasons:

  • Quicker development
  • More stable MVP
  • Easier to use
  • Fits into end-user CI/CD model

We considered a few different languages for development, including Python and Ruby, but ultimately chose Go.
