and, for the first time i needed a tutorial on an IDE. i mean, even eclipse has its quirks, android developer as well, but LiteIDE is totally obscure, no documentation, and unfortunately not much info - so what does the developer think to gain some audience for this otherwise nice looking tool?
so on we go - to Atom.
i used Atom before in various environments so that was an easy decision.
to utilize Go here you need go-plus extension for Atom.
But after i installed it, it spit some error messages:
ok, lets go one by one:
GOPATH - thats fine, you export in (Linux) as prescribed in all Go docs; add it to .profile for persistance. i did, but hadn't login so the setting didn't go into effect
goimports - whatever it does,running "go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/goimports" installs it
same with The Oracle (whooooo) - go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/oracle, does it
same with godef - go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/godef
Ooops, no - now it complains about hg not found; wtf is hg?
ok, installing mercurial took only a few seconds so the souls using it instead of git are forgiven (for now).
ok, but not ok - go get code.google.com/p/rog-go/canvas still spits some crap - apparently google shutting down code.google.com has its side effects on its pet inhouse (gone wild in public) language.
try again with go get -v github.com/9fans/go spits "no buildable Go source files"
i read some advice on reddit to mv ../github.com/9fans/ ../9fans.net
but this helped with nothing, and only when i accidentally found an article about godef integration in Sublime, i found a correct path for this crap:
go get -v github.com/rogpeppe/godef
gocode is flawless at github with
go get github.com/nsf/gocode
lint tool you get from here:
go get github.com/golang/lint/golint
in fact i see now that this link was very helpful - http://dominik.honnef.co/posts/2014/12/an_incomplete_list_of_go_tools/#golint
now, packaging is cool, but really no body from google, ah sorry - golang - thought about having a centralized hub? a reliable one, like something we can count on not to disappear and devastate time and efforts? blah
ok, going to log off now and see if all these had any effect..
ok, so now lets see if Atom+Go can do wonders to stun the programming world!
