Started Verity Project

I started another project named "Verity", which is a tool/library to build an inventory of system information. It aims to implement some parts of features from facter and ohai.

The reason why I had to create it is that tools written in Go like ohai/facter was needed when I would revise the architecture of my project, Triglav. I did re-design it and was convinced that it would be better to implement it in Go. Why so do I want to describe later, when I finish the project ;)


Do go get from this repository:

$ go get

Notice that you have to add bin directory to install verity command.

Then execute the command:

$ verity
