Golang Vagrant Environment

Golang has a slightly more complex setup procedure compared to other languages as it uses a workspace concept. Getting the environment wrong means many of the go commands fail with some what confusing errors.

This repo aims to alleviate the problems starting a golang project by providing a vagrant environment and puppet script that will setup and prepare all the required prerequisites.

Requirements

In order to use this repository you need the following:

Using vagrant-golang

This repo was developed to be copied and re-used as needed in other projects. It is only meant to make per project golang environments easier to manage. I have tried other golang modules for puppet and they didn't work as expected.

Clone or copy the repo and do the following:

$ cd /path/to/repo
$ vagrant up
$ vagrant ssh
# ...
$ go version
$ go install hello
$ hello
# hello, world

Choosing golang version

This repo is hardcoded to use 1.9 although this can easily be changed after cloning. If you want to use another version simply set the $version parameter when calling the class. The version string is taken from the golang downloads list. Once changed you can either call vagrant up if you haven't already setup the vagrant box or vagrant provision if the machine is already up.

Contributing

Any contributions are welcome. Please just fork the repo and submit a pull request when complete.
