What package manager can you recommend?


golang seems to offer a diverse set of package managers… It is a little bit overwhelming for a go starter. As I would like to avoid long term debt I would like to know which package manager you can recommend? Would be nice if it would support private dependencies too…


I tried Godeps for a while and it was annoying. I’m now using govendor.

I use glide a lot. It does the job well. Note that Go package management is relatively young and there is a working group intent on improving the whole experience. A new tool may come out of that work.


I recommend gb if you are building a product in Go and you don’t need to produce other libraries or artifacts for consumption by other Go programmers.

Thanks a lot! I will give glide a try. The api feels familiar to me…
