gocmt - Add missing comment on exported function, method, type, constant, variable in go file

Build Status Go Report Card

Installation

go get -u github.com/cuonglm/gocmt

Why gocmt

Some of my projects have many files with exported fields, variables, functions missing comment, so lint tools will complain.

I find a way to auto add missing comment to them, just to pass the lint tools but nothing existed.

So gocmt comes in.

Usage

$ gocmt -h
usage: gocmt [flags] [file ...]
  -d string
    	Directory to process
  -i	Make in-place editing
  -t string
    	Comment template (default "...")

Example

$ cat testdata/main.go
package p

var i = 0

var I = 1

var c = "constant un-exported"

const C = "constant exported"

type t struct{}

type T struct{}

func main() {
}

func unexport(s string) {
}
func Export(s string) {
}

func ExportWithComment(s string) {
}

Using gocmt give you:

$ gocmt testdata/main.go
package p

var i = 0

// I ...
var I = 1

var c = "constant un-exported"

// C ...
const C = "constant exported"

type t struct{}

// T ...
type T struct{}

func main() {
}

func unexport(s string) {
}
// Export ...
func Export(s string) {
}

// ExportWithComment ...
func ExportWithComment(s string) {
}

Default template is ..., you can change it using -t option.
