This guide will walk you through the installation of Go (Golang) on Fedora 31/30/29. Go is a programming language designed to ease the Development of reliable, simple, and efficient applications. It is an original product of Google Engineering.

In this guide, we will install Go 1.12 on Fedora 31/30/29 from official upstream repositories. To ensure the repositories are up-to-date, update the system.

sudo dnf -y update

Once you confirm it is up, install Go on Fedora 30 using the commands below.

sudo dnf -y install go

Test Go installation on Fedora 31/30/29

Now that we have Go installed on Fedora 30, let’s test to ensure it is working.

Start by creating your workspace directory.

mkdir $HOME/go

Create a directory inside it to host a test Go application.

cd $HOME/go
mkdir -p src/helloworld && cd src/helloworld

Create a file named helloworld.go that looks like:

package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
	fmt.Printf("hello, world\n")
}

Build the application with go tool

cd $HOME/go/src/helloworld
go build

This will generate a new file called helloworld .

$ ls
helloworld helloworld.go

Execute the file by running.

$ ./helloworld 
hello, world

To install the binary into your workspace’s bin directory, use:

$ go install
$ ls ~/go/bin/
helloworld

To remove it use:

go clean -i

You can add your Go binary directory to $PATH.

$ vim ~/.bashrc 
export PATH="$PATH:~/go/bin/"
export GOPATH="~/go"

You have installed Go on Fedora 31/30/29. Enjoy developing Go applications on your Fedora Workstation.
