A proof-of-concept command-line installer for Go.
This installer is designed to both install Go as well as do the initial configuration of setting up the right environment variables and paths.
It will install the Go distribution (tools & stdlib) to “/.go” inside your home directory by default.
It will setup “$HOME/go” as your GOPATH. This is where third party libraries and apps will be installed as well as where you will write your Go code.
If Go is already installed via this installer it will upgrade it to the latest version of Go.
Currently the installer supports Windows, *nix and macOS on x86 & x64. It supports Bash and Zsh on all of these platforms as well as powershell & cmd.exe on Windows.

There are integration tests in

The Dockerfile automatically builds the binary, moves it to
/usr/local/bin/getgo and then unsets
$GOPATH and removes all
