Go Lang

Go CLI uses the name "go" in your terminal to give you all of its benefits. There is another tool named the same, it is Go Programming Language. But you should not worry as Go is configured to work well with Go Lang.

How does it work

When you run Go CLI and it can not recognize the command it looks for other binaries with the name "go". If it matches something it will execute it with given arguments. Otherwise the error will be thrown.

If it works differently read troubleshooting section.


If Go CLI works not as expected you may do steps.

Check Path order

To make Go CLI work its binary should be "on top" of others in the system. In other words: when you type and execute go command it should run Go CLI.
