Interfacing in Go

package main

)
func main() {
client := bw2.ConnectOrExit("")
client.OverrideAutoChainTo(true)
client.SetEntityFromEnvironOrExit()
base_uri := "Light uri goes here ending in i.xbos.light"
// subscribe
type signal struct {
State bool `msgpack:"state"`
Brightness int64 `msgpack:"brightness"`
Time int64 `msgpack:"time"`
}

URI: base_uri + "/signal/info",
})

}
for msg := range c {

print "Subscribing. Ctrl-C to quit."
while True:
