This issue tracks all of the workarounds implemented in gopls to handle places where go/parser loses information. Most of this code can be found in and was written by @muirdm.

The current list of workarounds includes handling:

  • Missing curly braces in if statements (if foo -> if foo {})
  • Missing selectors (x. -> x._)
  • Partial identifiers that are keywords (foo.var -> foo._)
  • Missing conditional statements in if statements with initialization statements (if i := 0)
  • Unexpected array types ([]int -> []int{})
  • Incomplete go or defer statements (go foo -> go foo()).
  • Dangling selectors in go or defer statements
go foo.
y := 1


go foo._
y := 1
