So the other day I wanted to play some Go, but not the kind of Go you could imagine by looking at today’s post picture:
I mean the Google’s Go programming language. The sad news is that
there are no Debian packages in the repositories, but I was able of
finding a Mercurial repository with the stuff needed to make build a
nice build of it. So if you want to try out Go, just add the Igalia APT
repository to your system and install
google-go. For the lazy
people, this just cast this magic spell:
wget -qO- http://apt.igalia.com/apt-igalia.key | apt-key add - deb http://apt.igalia.com igalia main apt-get install google-go
For the moment there is an
amd64 for Sid that should work fine on
Ubuntu (Lucid and Maverick). I tried making an ARM build, but it failed
with some error I did not try to fix (yet).
Have a lot of fun playing with Go!
