Fetching Dependencies and Setting up the Beat

To fetch dependencies and set up the Beat, run:

cd ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/{user}/countbeat
make setup

The Beat now contains the basic config file, countbeat.yml, and template files. The Beat is "complete" in the sense that you can compile and run it. However, to make it functionally complete, you need to add your custom logic (see The Beater Interface), along with any additional configuration parameters that your Beat requires.
