Bash script to automate installation and removal of single-user Go language tools.

Feel free to change the variables on the beginning to match whatever version of Go you need.

Tested working on:

  • :white_check_mark: Ubuntu 16.04 to 20.04
  • :white_check_mark: macOS Sierra (10.12) to Big Sur (11.3)

Supported shells:

  • Bash, fish, Zsh

:hammer: Requirements

  • wget or curl
  • Bash shell

:fast_forward: Install

Download and run with wget or curl. Here's the short version using the official git.io shortening:

# Linux typically has wget installed
wget -q -O - https://git.io/vQhTU | bash

# macOS typically has curl installed
curl -L https://git.io/vQhTU | bash

Or, if you are more comfortable with the raw URL:

wget -q -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/canha/golang-tools-install-script/master/goinstall.sh | bash

# or...
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/canha/golang-tools-install-script/master/goinstall.sh | bash

:package: Install a custom Go version

Pass the --version option into the script including the version that you wish to install.

wget -q -O - https://git.io/vQhTU | bash -s -- --version 1.13.2

# or...
curl -L https://git.io/vQhTU | bash -s -- --version 1.13.2

:no_entry_sign: Uninstall

Pass the --remove option into the script:

wget -q -O - https://git.io/vQhTU | bash -s -- --remove

# or...
curl -L https://git.io/vQhTU | bash -s -- --remove

:pencil: Notes

By default, the script will create .go and go folders on your home directory and add the needed variables and PATH expansion.

$HOME/.go is the directory where Go will be installed to.

$HOME/go is the default workspace directory.

Read more about the workspace.

In order to install Go into another location, set the environment variables $GOROOT and $GOPATH before (un)installing:

export GOROOT=/opt/go
export GOPATH=$HOME/projects/go
