The most trusted Go module proxy in China.
Goproxy China has fully implemented the Go's module proxy protocol. And it's a non-profit project supported by China's well-trusted cloud service provider Qiniu Cloud. Our goal is to provide a free, trusted, always on, and CDNed Go module proxy for Gophers in China and the rest of the world.
Goproxy China only focuses on the development of the web application that serves at the https://goproxy.cn. If you're looking for a dead simple way to build your own Go module proxy, then you should take a look at Goproxy which is Goproxy China based on.
Happy coding, Gophers! ;-)

Q: Why create Goproxy China?
A: Due to the Chinese government's network supervision system, there're lot of
modules in the Go ecosystem that Chinese Gophers cannot
go get, such as the
golang.org/x/.... And the speed of getting modules from GitHub in
the mainland of China is a bit slow. So we created Goproxy China to make Gophers
in China better use Go modules. In fact, since the
goproxy.cn has been CDNed, Gophers in other countries can
also use it.
Q: Is it safe to use Goproxy China?
A: Of course, as with all other Go module proxies, we just cache the modules as they are, so we can assure you that they will never be tampered with on our side. However, if you still can't fully trust us, then you can use the most trusted checksum database sum.golang.org to ensure that the modules you get from us have not been tampered with, since Goproxy China has supported proxying checksum databases.
Q: Is Goproxy China legal in China?
A: Goproxy China is a business-supported project rather than a personal project. And it has been ICP filed in the MIIT of China (ICP license: 沪ICP备11037377号-56), which means it's fully legal in China.
Q: Why not use the proxy.golang.org?
A: The proxy.golang.org has been blocked in the
mainland of China. So, no. However, if you're not in the mainland of China, then
we recommend that you give priority to using the
proxy.golang.org, after all, it looks more official.
Once you enter the mainland of China, we hope that you'll think of the
goproxy.cn in the first place, which is the main reason why
we choose the
.cn as the domain name extension.
Although the following content only explains how to set
GOPROXY, but we also
recommend that you set
on instead of
auto when you are
working with Go modules.
Go 1.13 and above (RECOMMENDED)
Open your terminal and execute
$ go env -w GOPROXY=https://goproxy.cn,direct
macOS or Linux
Open your terminal and execute
$ export GOPROXY=https://goproxy.cn
$ echo "export GOPROXY=https://goproxy.cn" >> ~/.profile && source ~/.profile
Open your PowerShell and execute
C:\> $env:GOPROXY = "https://goproxy.cn"
1. Open the Start Search, type in "env" 2. Choose the "Edit the system environment variables" 3. Click the "Environment Variables…" button 4. Under the "User variables for <YOUR_USERNAME>" section (the upper half) 5. Click the "New..." button 6. Choose the "Variable name" input bar, type in "GOPROXY" 7. Choose the "Variable value" input bar, type in "https://goproxy.cn" 8. Click the "OK" button
