This document aims to clarify what level of support you can expect while using GoSublime.

Use of GoSublime assumes you've read and understood all the points herein.

Sublime Text

  • All versions of Sublime Text 3 should be supported.
  • For versions before the official 3.0 release in September 2017, graceful fall-backs are in place.
  • Testing is only done for the current non-beta version and only on Linux.


  • It is assumed that you are experienced with Sublime Text, basic key bindings, its settings system, etc.
  • It is assumed that you already have a working Go installation:

Package Control

  • Package Control is not supported


GoSublime is backed by to which the following points apply:

  • Like the official Go release policy, only the current and previous released versions of Go are supported.
  • Only the main gc tool-chain distributed by is supported.
  • margo should not require a cgo-enabled Go installation, but non-cgo builds i.e. CGO_ENABLED=0 are not tested.

Go Modules

At this time, Go modules are only partially supported. Auto-completion and other features built directly into margo should work in most cases, but features backed by external tools e.g. goto definition might work.

We plan to implement most of these features internally as our (type-check) importer matures.

Operating Systems

  • Testing is only done on Arch Linux.
  • Windows and macOS should work without issue, but no testing is done on them.


Please note:

  • By default fmt is achieved through direct use of the packages in the stdlib and not the binaries on your system.
