You can discover the install path by running the go list command go list -f '{{.Target}}'

Add the Go install directory to your system’s shell path

  • on Linux / Mac export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/your/install/directory
  • on Windows set PATH=%PATH%;C:\path\to\your\install\directory

As an alternative, if you already have a directory like $HOME/bin in your shell path and you’d like to install your Go programs there, you can change the install target by setting the GOBIN variable using the go env command

  • on Linux / Mac go env -w GOBIN=/path/to/your/bin

Once you’ve updated the shell path, run the following to compile and install the package go install
