Please Use Go Mods

April 14, 2021

A pretty short post.

No longer will you have to deal with dependency issues because your project is not set in the gopath. Now you can just run the following to make life much easier:

go mod init github.com/{User||Org}/{project name}

This will set up your project to easily use third-party modules. If you need a specific module just:

go get -u <module-name>

The above will also update your dependency if you needed that.

If you just cloned a project with go mod init set, then you can just run

go mod download

As promised, done!
