An open source programming language built to craft simple, reliable, and efficient software.
Upstream projects can be installed with
go get command. Package names follows the import paths so to install
github.com/gorilla/context from GitHub run:
$ go get github.com/gorilla/context
If the requested package comes with an executable binary, you will find it in
$GOPATH/bin. If you have not added that to your
PATH environment variable yet, you can do so with these commands:
$ echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$GOPATH/bin' >> $HOME/.bashrc $ source $HOME/.bashrc
Alternatively, various Go packages are packaged and available in Fedora.
The package name idiom is that the import paths of libraries are fully qualified domain names. This way you have clarity to the precise upstream being used. By truncating domain names, using ‘-‘ instead of ‘/’ and appending
-devel suffix you know how is the associated Fedora package called. For example, ‘github.com/gorilla/context’ would become
golang-github-gorilla-context-devel. Similarly, the ‘code.google.com/p/go.net’ repository would become
golang-googlecode-net-devel package, you use DNF as usual:
$ sudo dnf install golang-googlecode-net-devel
