gomove is a utility to help you move golang packages by automatically changing the import paths from the old one to new one.


Getting Started

Getting started with gomove is really easy. If you have a proper

$GOPATH
setup and your path set to
bin
directory in
$GOPATH
, you can do the following to get gomove tool:
$ go get -u github.com/ksubedi/gomove

You can also download pre-built binary files and debian packages from the releases page.

Once you have the gomove installed, using it is really easy. First, move your package directory to the new directory and run gomove tool.

In this example, we are moving package

github.com/ksubedi/go-web-seed
to
github.com/ksubedi/new-project
. First we move the first directory to the second one, then we can do the following to automatically update the imports:
$ gomove -d $GOPATH/src/github.com/ksubedi/new-project github.com/ksubedi/go-web-seed github.com/ksubedi/new-project

You can also

cd
to the directory of
github.com/ksubedi/new-project
and run gomove like this:
$ gomove github.com/ksubedi/go-web-seed github.com/ksubedi/new-project

You can also only replace the contents one file only by using

-f
or
--file
flag.
$ gomove -f hello.go github.com/bla/bla github.com/foo/bar

You can also run

gomove --help
for help.
$ gomove --help

Safe Mode

By default this tool uses something called native mode where it scans through the go files, finds import statements and replaces the package names. However if you want to use a more safe way of changing the import statements, you can use Safe Mode which parses the ast tree of the go file and replaces imports from there. The biggest downside to using this is that it will prettify your files. To use it in safe mode set the

--safe-mode
or
-s
flag to true:
gomove --safe-mode true github.com/bla/bla github.com/foo/bar
