# Development Environment Setup

You'll need go-lang 1.13+, git and make on your machine to go through the tutorials.

Use an Editor or an IDE of your choice, e.g. Visual Studio Code.

To download golang visit the official golang download page. Below are some added instructions on how to down load make and git.

# Ubuntu 18.04

Copy sudo add-apt-repository ppa:longsleep/golang-backports sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install golang-go go version # should be go1.13.x # add go env GOPATH to the system PATH echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$(go env GOPATH)/bin' >> ~/.profile source ~/.profile

git and make are already installed, if not:

Copy sudo apt-get install git make

# Other *nix, Mac

Use the package-manager of your system.

  • Mac: Brew is recommended

# Windows

Windows native is not tested/supported.

You can use WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) or another virtual machine running ubuntu 18.04.
