Supported Versions

Only the latest major version.

Installation

The gore command requires Go tool-chains on runtime, so standalone binary is not distributed.

go get github.com/motemen/gore/cmd/gore

Make sure

$GOPATH/bin
is in your
$PATH
.

Also recommended:

go get github.com/mdempsky/gocode   # for code completion

Or you can use Docker:

git clone https://github.com/motemen/gore.git
cd gore
docker build -t gore .
docker run -it --rm gore

FAQ/Caveats

  • gore runs code using
    go run
    for each input. All the inputted lines are evaluated again and again so you can't bind the evaluated time by
    time.Now()
    , for example. If you don't like this behavior, you may want to use yaegi.
  • gore support Go modules. You can load local modules when you start gore at the project directory. You don't need to
    go get
    to check the usage of a remote repository,
    :import github.com/...
    will automatically download that module. Also, you don't need to
    go get
    the pretty print module anymore. If you want to load a local code from
    $GOPATH
    , you need to create the modules file (
    go mod init ...
    ) and then start gore at the project directory.
