This page helps you set your GOPATH environment variable after installing go.
The GOPATH environment variable is a directory where all Go projects live.
First, make your GOPATH directory
> mkdir ~/go
Then, set environment variables in your shell startup script. On OS X, this is
~/.bash_profile. For different operating systems or shells, the path may be different. For Ubuntu, it may be
echo export GOPATH=\"\$HOME/go\" >> ~/.bash_profile echo export PATH=\"\$PATH:\$GOPATH/bin\" >> ~/.bash_profile
