Installing Go

To install Go 1.7.4 on Linux, I did these steps…

curl -O http://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.7.4.linux-amd64.tar.gz
tar -xvf go1.7.4.linux-amd64.tar.gz
sudo mv go /usr/local

In ~/.bashrc add:

export PATH=/usr/local/go/bin:$PATH
export GOPATH=$HOME/go
export PATH=$PATH:$GOPATH/bin

Re-source the .bashrc to obtain the settings. Packages can be installed like this…

go get -u github.com/tools/godep
go get -u github.com/jteeuwen/go-bindata/go-bindata
go get -u github.com/nsf/gocode
go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/guru
go get github.com/rogpeppe/godef
