A set of git pre-commit hooks for Golang with support for Modules.

Requires the Pre-Commit.com Hook Management framework.


Installation

You can copy/paste the following snippet into your .pre-commit-config.yaml file.

NOTE A more fleshed-out version can be found in sample-config.yaml

    # Golang Pre-Commit Hooks | https://github.com/tekwizely/pre-commit-golang
    #
    # !! ALL Hooks enabled by default - Comment out hooks you are not using
    #
    # Visit the project home page to learn more about the available Hooks,
    # including useful arguments you might want to pass into them.
    #
    # NOTE: When passing options to hooks, if your options contain a reference
    #       to an existing file, then you will need to use a trailing '--'
    #       argument to separate the hook options from the modified-file list
    #       that Pre-Commit passes into the hook.
    #       For repo-based hooks, '--' is not needed.
    #
    # Consider adding aliases to longer-named hooks for easier CLI usage.

Overview

Hook Targets

File-Based Hooks

Some hooks run against matching staged files individually.

Module-Based Hooks

Some hooks work on a per-module basis. The hooks run against module root folders containing one or more matching staged files.

Module Root Folder: A folder containing a go.mod file. Discovered by walking up the folder path from the staged file.

Module Mode

Module-based hooks enable module mode (GO111MODULE=on) before invoking their respective tools.

Package-Based Hooks

Some hooks work on a per-package basis. The hooks run against folders containing one or more staged files.

Package Folder: A folder containing one or more .go files.

Package Mode

Package-based hooks disable module mode (GO111MODULE=off) before invoking their respective tools.

Repo-Based Hooks

Some hooks run against the entire repo. The hooks only run once (if any matching files are staged), and are NOT provided the list of staged files,


Hook Suffixes

Hooks have suffixes in their name that indicate their targets:

Suffix Target Description
<none> Files Targets staged files directly
-mod Module Targets module root folders of staged .go files
-pkg Package Targets folders containing staged .go files
-repo-mod All Modules Targets all module root folders in the repo
-repo-pkg All Packages Targets all package folders in the repo

Multiple Hook Invocations

Due to OS command-line-length limits, Pre-Commit can invoke a hook multiple times if a large number of files are staged.

For file and repo-based hooks, this isn't an issue, but for module and package-based hooks, there is a potential for the hook to run against the same module or package multiple times, duplicating any errors or warnings.


Useful Hook Parameters

-   id: hook-id
    args: [arg1, arg2, ..., '--'] # Pass options ('--' is optional)
    always_run: true              # Run even if no matching files staged
    alias: hook-alias             # Create an alias

Passing Options To Hooks

You can pass options into individual hooks to customize tool behavior.

If your options contain a reference to an existing file, then you will need to use a trailing '--' argument to separate the hook options from the modified-file list that Pre-Commit passes into the hook.

NOTE: For repo-based hooks, '--' is not needed.

See each hook's description below for some popular options that you might want to use.

Additionally, you can view each tool's individual home page or help settings to learn about all the available options.

Always Run

By default, hooks ONLY run when matching file types (usually *.go) are staged.

When configured to "always_run", a hook is executed as if EVERY matching file were staged.

Aliases

Consider adding aliases to longer-named hooks for easier CLI usage.


Hooks


go-build

Compiles packages, along with their dependencies, but does not install the results.

Hook ID Description
go-build-mod Run 'cd $(mod_root $FILE); go build -o /dev/null [$ARGS] ./...' for each staged .go file
go-build-pkg Run 'go build -o /dev/null [$ARGS] ./$(dirname $FILE)' for each staged .go file
go-build-repo-mod Run 'cd $(mod_root); go build -o /dev/null [$ARGS] ./...' for each module in the repo
go-build-repo-pkg Run 'go build -o /dev/null [$ARGS] ./...' in repo root folder
Install

Comes with Golang ( golang.org )

Help

go-test

Automates testing, printing a summary of test resutls.

Hook ID Description
go-test-mod Run 'cd $(mod_root $FILE); go test [$ARGS] ./...' for each staged .go file
go-test-pkg Run 'go test [$ARGS] ./$(dirname $FILE)' for each staged .go file
go-test-repo-mod Run 'cd $(mod_root); go test [$ARGS] ./...' for each module in the repo
go-test-repo-pkg Run 'go test [$ARGS] ./...' in repo root folder
Install

Comes with Golang ( golang.org )

Help

go-vet

Examines Go source code and reports suspicious constructs, such as Printf calls whose arguments do not align with the format string. Vet uses heuristics that do not guarantee all reports are genuine problems, but it can find errors not caught by the compilers.

Hook ID Description
go-vet Run 'go vet [$ARGS] $FILE' for each staged .go file
go-vet-mod Run 'cd $(mod_root $FILE); go vet [$ARGS] ./...' for each staged .go file
go-vet-pkg Run 'go vet [$ARGS] ./$(dirname $FILE)' for each staged .go file
go-vet-repo-mod Run 'cd $(mod_root); go vet [$ARGS] ./...' for each module in the repo
go-vet-repo-pkg Run 'go vet [$ARGS] ./...' in repo root folder
Install

Comes with Golang ( golang.org )

Help

go-fmt

Formats Go programs. It uses tabs for indentation and blanks for alignment. Alignment assumes that an editor is using a fixed-width font.

  • Can modify files (see -w)
Hook ID Description
go-fmt Run 'gofmt -l -d [$ARGS] $FILE' for each staged .go file
Install

Comes with Golang ( golang.org )

Useful Args
-d=false : Don't display diffs
-s       : Try to simplify code
-w       : Update source file directly
Help

go-imports

Updates your Go import lines, adding missing ones and removing unreferenced ones.

  • Replaces go-fmt
  • Can modify files (see -w)
Hook ID Description
go-imports Run 'goimports -l -d [$ARGS] $FILE' for each staged .go file
Install
go get -u golang.org/x/tools/cmd/goimports
Useful Args
-d=false        : Hide diffs
-format-only    : Do not fix imports, act ONLY as go-fmt
-local prefixes : Add imports matching prefix AFTER 3rd party packages
                  (prefixes = comma-separated list)
-v              : Verbose logging
-w              : Update source file directly
Help

go-returns

Implements a Go pretty-printer (like go-fmt) that also adds zero-value return values as necessary to incomplete return statements.

  • Replaces go-fmt and go-imports
  • Can modify files (see -w)
Hook ID Description
go-returns Run 'goreturns -l -d [$ARGS] $FILE' for each staged .go file
Install
go get -u github.com/sqs/goreturns
Useful Args
-b              : Remove bare returns
-d=false        : Hide diffs
-i=false        : Disable go-imports
-local prefixes : Add imports matching prefix AFTER 3rd party packages
                  (prefixes = comma-separated list)
-p              : Print non-fatal type-checking errors to STDERR
-s              : Try to simplify code
-w              : Update source file directly
Help

go-lint

A linter for Go source code, meant to carry out the stylistic conventions put forth in Effective Go and CodeReviewComments.

Hook ID Description
go-lint Run 'golint -set_exit_status [$ARGS] $FILE' for each staged .go file
Install
go get -u golang.org/x/lint/golint
Help

go-critic

The most opinionated Go source code linter for code audit.

Hook ID Description
go-critic Run 'gocritic check [$ARGS] $FILE' for each staged .go file
Install

https://github.com/go-critic/go-critic#installation

Useful Args
-enableAll        : Enable ALL checkers
-enable checkers  : comma-separated list of checkers to be enabled
                    (can include #tags)
-disable checkers : comma-separated list of checkers to be disabled
                    (can include #tags)

Tags

  • #diagnostic
  • #style
  • #opinionated
  • #performance
