internal/lsp: use the go command to fix go.mod files

Modifying go.mod files directly leaves go.sum unchanged, and therefore
in need of updates later. Leaving work for the users to clean up isn't
ideal, so it'd be better to use the go command to make modifications.

Unfortunately, the go command has something of a mind of its own. The
most obvious problem is that using go get to add a new require adds a
// indirect comment to that new require, and there's no way to prevent
it. The only thing we can do is add the require first, then use go get
to do nothing but update the go.sum file.

The other inherent problem is that the go command operates on files as
they exist on disk, not the in-memory versions. As discussed, we issue
an error for this case. The alternative would be to work on temporary
files based on the in-memory contents, but that would be much larger
change, so I'd rather not at least right now.

To support Commands for quick fixes, add a new Command field to
source.SuggestedFix, and use it when forming the CodeAction response.

Fixes golang/go#38209.

Go Tools

This subrepository holds the source for various packages and tools that support the Go programming language.

Some of the tools, godoc and vet for example, are included in binary Go distributions.

Others, including the Go guru and the test coverage tool, can be fetched with go get.

Packages include a type-checker for Go and an implementation of the Static Single Assignment form (SSA) representation for Go programs.


The easiest way to install is to run go get -u You can also manually git clone the repository to $GOPATH/src/

JS/CSS Formatting

This repository uses prettier to format JS and CSS files.

The version of prettier used is 1.18.2.

It is encouraged that all JS and CSS code be run through this before submitting a change. However, it is not a strict requirement enforced by CI.
