Simple environment manager for the Go programming language

Project Description

# goenv - Set up a Golang environment

I got tired of manually setting my GOPATH when I went from one project to another, so I wrote a small utility to set up my environment for me. It is similar in spirit to Python’s virtualenv, though it does less, and does it a little differently.

The main difference is that instead of an ‘activate’ script that sets up your environment, this opens up a new subshell for you to work in. It will also download and install the version of Go that you want it to.

## Installation

Currently goenv is written in python, so installation is a simple pip install away:

$ sudo pip install pygoenv

## Usage

$ cd /path/to/project $ echo $GOPATH

# simplest usage $ goenv Downloading Extracting /home/user/.cache/goenv/go1.2.linux-amd64.tar.gz to /home/user/.config/goenv/dists/1.2 (golang-1.2) $ echo $GOPATH /path/to/project:/path/to/project/pkg/somepkg ^D $

# You don’t have to download a new go tarball every time… $ goenv Using existing tarball Go version 1.2 already exists, skipping extract (golang-1.2) $ ^D $

# specify Golang version $ goenv –go-version 1.1 Downloading Extracting /home/user/.cache/goenv/go1.1.linux-amd64.tar.gz to /home/user/.config/goenv/dists/1.1 (golang-1.1) $
