Auto-install Go package from inside Visual Studio Code

I use visual studio code write Go,

I’ve noticed that i have to run go get package-name on the terminal to install needed go packages

My source looks like below , if i import a package without running go get package-name , an error occurs

import (

_ ""
_ ""

Is there a plugin or extension that can automatically download go packages for me ? The only thing i need to do is to include the package in the import section of my Go file.

Is there something that is functional that i can use for that purpose ?

The Go extension of Viual Studio Code provides a command called Go: Get Package. To use it, put your input focus on an import line, open the command prompt and execute the command.


This will execute go get from inside Visual Studio Code.
