Using Go (golang) to create a systray app

In my previous blog post I talked about creating a blog in Go to practice my Go skills and knowledge. Well, that turned out to be a bit tedious and repetitive, because I already made dozens of those kind of applications. So instead of creating a blog in Go, I choose to make a systray application called Wallpanda.

The goal for Wallpanda is that the application sits in your systray and let's you choose a random wallpaper every day, or whenever you feel like. I got stole this idea from Wall.cat, so if you want to have a production ready version of this idea, go ahead and download that one.

In the upcoming days I will blog more about how I plan to create the application and create a repository, so you can follow along with me.

Thanks.
