  • golint - Golint is a linter for Go source code.
  • unittest - Golang unit test status.
  • deadcode - Finds unused code.
  • gocyclo - Computes the cyclomatic complexity of functions.
  • varcheck - Find unused global variables and constants.
  • structcheck - Find unused struct fields.
  • aligncheck - Warn about un-optimally aligned structures.
  • errcheck - Check that error return values are used.
  • copycode(dupl) - Reports potentially duplicated code.
  • gosimple - Report simplifications in code.
  • staticcheck - Statically detect bugs, both obvious and subtle ones.
  • godepgraph - Godepgraph is a program for generating a dependency graph of Go packages.
  • misspell - Correct commonly misspelled English words... quickly.
  • countcode - Count lines and files of project.
  • interfacer - Suggest narrower interfaces that can be used.
  • depth - Count the maxdepth of go functions.
  • flen - Flen provides stats on functions/methods lengths in a Golang package.

Todo List

  • This version will re-design the template.
  • Add interfacer and safesql and gofmt(-s),govet linter.




Install goreporter (see above).

go get -u

Run it:


You have to confirm that your project is operational. In particular, the problem with vendor, when the package is not found in the default path, goreporter will look again from the possible vendor path.

goreporter -p [projectRelativePath] -r [reportPath] -e [exceptPackagesName] -f [json/html/text]  {-t templatePathIfHtml}
  • -version Version of GoReporter.
  • -p Must be a valid Golang project path.
  • -r Save the path to the report.
  • -e Exceptional packages (multiple separated by commas, for example: "linters/aligncheck,linters/cyclo" ).
  • -f report format json, html OR text.
  • -t Template path,if not specified, the default template will be used.

By default, the default template is used to generate reports in html format.
