GVM provides an interface to manage Go versions.
- Install/Uninstall Go versions with
gvm install [tag]where tag is "60.3", "weekly.2011-11-08", or "tip"
- List added/removed files in GOROOT with
- Manage GOPATHs with
gvm pkgset [create/use/delete] [name]
- List latest release tags with
gvm listall. Use
--allto list weekly as well.
- Cache a clean copy of the latest Go source for multiple version installs.
When we started developing in Go mismatched dependencies and API changes plauged our build process and made it extremely difficult to merge with other peoples changes.
After nuking my entire GOROOT several times and rebuilding I decided to come up with a tool to oversee the process. It eventually evolved into what gvm is today.
bash < <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/moovweb/gvm/master/binscripts/gvm-installer)
gvm install 60.3 gvm use 60.3
Once this is done Go will be in the path and ready to use. $GOROOT and $GOPATH are set automatically.
You are now ready to create and use packages built using gpkg. Instructions can be found at http://github.com/moovweb/gpkg

Sometimes especially during upgrades the state of gvm's files can get mixed up. This is mostly true for upgrade from older version than 0.0.8. Changes are slowing down and a LTR is imminent. But for now
rm -rf ~/.gvm will always remove gvm. Stay tuned!
