"Ground Control is a Go based daemon that runs on your Pi and lets you manage and monitor it with ease."

"Golint differs from govet. Govet is concerned with correctness, whereas golint is concerned with coding style. Golint is in use at Google, and it seeks to match the accepted style of the open source Go project."
