Go - Workspace

About

The workspace is the root directory of all work in go

A workspace is a directory hierarchy with three directories at its root:

  • src contains Go source files,
  • pkg contains package objects, and
  • bin contains executable commands.

Environment variable

echo $GOPATH
go help gopath

gopath

Example

  • Two repositories (example and image).
    • The example repository (src/github.com/golang/example/) contains:
      • Two commands (hello and outyet)
      • one library (stringutil).
    • The image repository (src/golang.org/x/image/) contains the:
      • bmp package
      • and several others.
