Debug Kubernetes Operator-sdk locally in Goland

This is a follow on from this article setting up the operator-sdk debug in vscode.

Setup Goland to debug

The setup for Goland is pretty similar to Vscode.

Delve is a debug tool for golang, it can be downloaded here or by just using go

go get -u

In Goland go to `Run\Edit Configurations…`

Click on the Plus symbol `+` and add `Go Remote` add a Name and click `Apply` the defaults are fine

You need to run delve with the command line switch `enable-delve` on the `up local` command
e.g. The operator I am working on is called `integreatly-operator` so the commands to run it are as follows

NOTE: command changed with v0.15.0

operator-sdk run --local --namespace=integreatly-operator

Click on `Run\Debug ‘whatYouCallYourGoRemote’`

Goland will start to debug and stop at your breakpoints.
