go importsis always run before running your code, so you don't usually have to worry about imports at all
Code execution is proxied to the official Go Playground, so your programs will work the same. Shared snippets are also stored on golang.org servers.
Download the package:
$ go get -u github.com/iafan/goplayspace/...
Compile both client-side code and server binary:
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/iafan/goplayspace/bin $ ./build-client && ./build-server
Run the server:
Then open http://localhost:8080/ in your browser.
If you have trouble compiling the client, please make sure you have the latest version of GopherJS installed by running
go get -u github.com/gopherjs/gopherjs (see #6)
