Version 3.7.0 of the Gravwell open source repository introduces an exciting new feature: a Go library for interacting directly with Gravwell! Our Data Fusion platform has always been about meeting custom analytics needs and not forcing clients onto limited rails for dashboarding, searching, etc. Out-of-the-box only gets you so far, and beyond is where our customers get into doing some really, really cool stuff.
Open sourcing the Gravwell client library makes it much faster for users to get any custom code up and running - which means less time to ingestion, automation, alerting, and other juicy data goodness. This post will show how to instantiate & authenticate a client, then give a few examples of what you can do.
