Beginer - Tools for Go Development


(Savio Barros) #1

Hey everyone,
I am starting my Golang journey. I am picking some tools to help me during the journey. I would like to know which IDE/Editors are the most used for Gophers. Could you guys help me, pls?
Also, are there other tools that I should care about?
Have a great week

Personally I use Visual Studio Code as an IDE, and with the Go extension it uses the native Go tooling such as fmt and test in the IDE every time I save.

Built in Go Tool:

Then there pprof and torch to evaluate what your code spends its time doing, helps identify points of refactor.

I use vim as an IDE. maybe you need plugin vim-go. i think it’s a nice choose!
