Snake over Telnet in Go

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

Telnet games were very popular some time ago, especially this Star Wars movie: telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl.

I wanted to create something in Go, and I wrote this Snake game over Telnet.

Go is awesome in this case, no need any dependencies to build this funny stuff.

Try it:

telnet pliutau.com 8080



go get github.com/plutov/go-snake-telnet
go-snake-telnet --host localhost --port 8080


It's open source project, so feel free to contribute - go-snake-telnet.

Is generalization killing creativity in the software industry?

As software gets more and more integrated into our lives, the industrialization of its crafting process becomes inevitable. But the over-generalization of software engineering can be crushing the creative side of programming.
