Caddy plugin that provides a caching Go modules proxy with your own domain.

state release license

NOTE: This is a beta release, we do not consider it completely production ready yet. Use at your own risk.

Gomods is a Caddy plugin that provides a caching Go modules proxy with your own domain. It supports all the hosting services and VCS` that are supported by Go tools. It also provides local caching and parallel workers to fetch and store Go modules.

Using Gomods

Note: The master branch is using Caddy v2, if you want to use Gomods with previous Caddy versions, check the caddy-v1 branch.

Gomods uses Go tools in the background for fetching the modules so there needs to be an installed version of Go on your machine.

For installing Gomods run the following command:

go get

Then you should create a config file like this example:

gomods.test {

The example above uses the default values for Go binary and number of parallel workers. To customize these values add these fields to your config file:

gomods.test {
  gomods {
    gobinary /usr/bin/go
    workers 2

To enable caching you should also add the cache field to the config:

gomods.test {
  gomods {

Just like gomods itself, cache also uses its default values when not provided. You can specify fields like type and path to customize caching:

gomods.test {
  gomods {
    cache {
      type local
      path /home/user/gomods_cache

For more information about the configuration options and the JSON config example, check the Configuration page.

To run Gomods run the following command in the same directory that the config file is located:

$ gomods start
