Go Client

The client-go Go library provides:

Refer to the fully-functional example to see how the Go client connects to the Falco gRPC Outputs API and displays the events in JSON.

Additional examples for various APIs are located in the examples directory of the client-go repository.

  1. Ensure that you have the certificates in the example’s path at /tmp/{client.crt,client.key,ca.crt}.

  2. In the client-go root directory, run:

    $ go run examples/output/main.go | jq
    

    The output events start flowing in depending on the set of rules in the Falco instance.
