Golang on the Apple Mac

Mac OS 10.11.3 - El Capitan

Hello, I’m just about to attempt to install the Golang development environment on an Apple Mac. However, I have read that to install Golang, I also need to install Xcode. This presents a problem because the Apple App Store actively blocks any attempt to install Xcode to El Capitan - its set to 10.12 Sierra only. I have installed Homebrew which involved installing the Xcode Command Line tools (I think) so I don’t know if Golang will install or not. I have to wait till tomorrow because I won’t have a decent internet connection on my Mac until then (WiFi USB Dongle probs!). Can anyone help? Thanks!


The CLI tools should be enough.
