Usage of Snake_Case

Reports usage of snake case instead of camelcase for naming variables, constants and functions. According to MixedCaps at, camelcase is a convention in Go.


func get_external_IP() (string, error) {}

The get_external_IP is in snake case but should be in camelcase. You can apply a quick-fix to convert the function name to getExternalIp.
