Yet another Go REPL that works nicely. Featured with line editing, code completion, and more.
(Screencast taken with cho45/KeyCast)
After a prompt is shown, enter any Go expressions/statements/functions or commands described below.
To quit the session, type
Ctrl-D or use
- Line editing with history
- Multi-line input
- Package importing with completion
- Evaluates any expressions, statements and function declarations
- No "evaluated but not used" errors
- Code completion (requires gocode)
- Showing documents
- Auto-importing (
Some functionalities are provided as commands in the REPL:
:import <package path> Import package :type <expr> Print the type of expression :print Show current source :write [<filename>] Write out current source to file :clear Clear the codes :doc <expr or pkg> Show document :help List commands :quit Quit the session
The gore command requires Go tool-chains on runtime, so standalone binary is not distributed.
go install github.com/x-motemen/gore/cmd/gore@latest
$GOPATH/bin is in your
go install github.com/mdempsky/gocode@latest # for code completion
Or you can use Docker:
git clone https://github.com/x-motemen/gore.git cd gore docker build -t gore . docker run -it --rm gore
- gore runs code using
go runfor 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 getto check the usage of a remote repository,
:import github.com/...will automatically download that module. Also, you don't need to
go getthe 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.
