Golang

Quickly and easily install the Go programming language with a customisable workspace and version.

Usage

In order to use this module do the following:

class { 'golang':
  version   => '1.1.2',
  workspace => '/usr/local/src/go',
}

This will install go 1.1.2 and setup your workspace in /usr/local/go. Your chosen workspace should include a bin, pkg and src directory. The golang module doesn't create these to avoid using the wrong permissions which can cause potential issues using commands like go get.

If you wish to add your own code into the golang workspace but not add the files directly the best method is to create a symlink as demonstrated below:

file { '/home/user/project':
  ensure => link,
  target => '/usr/local/src/go/src/project',
}

Your project can then be accessed by Go:

$ go test project

Additional Options

The golang module supports some additional options:

class { 'golang':
  arch => 'linux-amd64',
  download_dir => '/usr/local/src',
  download_url => 'https://company.intranet/downloads/golang.tar.gz',
}

arch

The arch option is a string which is used in conjunction with the default download_url. It is the portion of the url that points to the correct architecture specific download.

download_dir

download_dir is the location in which the golang tarball is downloaded to. This is configurable in case the default (/usr/local/src) is unavailable.

download_url

This represents the url in which to download the golang tarball. The default url is made up of version and arch from the official golang downloads.

Contributions

This module is fairly young and has only been tested on Debian. All contributions are welcome by forking the project and creating a pull request with your changes.

Roadmap

There are still additional features which would make this module better:

  1. Tests (tut, tut me for not doing them)
  2. The ability to remove go
  3. A Go project resource which would automatically symlink the directory?
