The most recent release of Go is available from the command-line but not yet supported for web applications.


By default, the path for your Go workspace is ~/go/. If you need to change this or add another workspace, you can override the environment variable $GOPATH with the new directory location.


You can install remote packages into your workspace with go get. Source code will be installed in ~/go/src/ and compiled applications will be installed in ~/go/bin/. For example:

$ go get
$ $GOPATH/bin/hello
Hello, Go examples!
