Install

vim-go requires at least Vim 8.0.1453 or Neovim 0.4.0.

The latest stable release is the recommended version to use. If you choose to use the master branch instead, please do so with caution; it is a development branch.

vim-go follows the standard runtime path structure. Below are some helper lines for popular package managers:

  • Vim 8 packages
    • git clone https://github.com/fatih/vim-go.git ~/.vim/pack/plugins/start/vim-go
  • Pathogen
    • git clone https://github.com/fatih/vim-go.git ~/.vim/bundle/vim-go
  • vim-plug
    • Plug 'fatih/vim-go', { 'do': ':GoUpdateBinaries' }
  • Vundle
    • Plugin 'fatih/vim-go'

You will also need to install all the necessary binaries. vim-go makes it easy to install all of them by providing a command, :GoInstallBinaries, which will go get all the required binaries.

Check out the Install section in the documentation for more detailed instructions (:help go-install).

Usage

The full documentation can be found at doc/vim-go.txt. You can display it from within Vim with :help vim-go.

Depending on your installation method, you may have to generate the plugin's help tags manually (e.g. :helptags ALL).

We also have an official vim-go tutorial.

FAQ and troubleshooting

The FAQ and troubleshooting tips are in the documentation and can be quickly accessed using :help go-troubleshooting. If you believe you've found a bug or shortcoming in vim-go that is neither addressed by help nor in existing issues, please open an issue with clear reproduction steps. :GoReportGitHubIssue can be used pre-populate a lot of the information needed when creating a new issue.

Contributing

All PRs are welcome. If you are planning to contribute a large patch or to integrate a new tool, please create an issue first to get any upfront questions or design decisions out of the way first.

You can run the tests locally by running make. It will lint the VimL for you, lint the documentation, and run the tests against the minimum required version of Vim, other versions of Vim that may be critical to support, and Neovim.
