  • How do you manage multiple versions of Go?

    I am surprised I only saw one comment for goenv. This is literally the easiest way for all languages that have something similar (Python, Ruby, Go, Terraform, etc.). You need to uninstall all your go binaries, then install goenv, and all you have to do is to put in a project a .go-version file containing a single line with the version you need. The files are searched by the tool in a hierarchical order: if in the current directory where go is ran, no .go-version file is found, the tool will look up one directory, if there’s no ../.go-version will try again and so on. Let’s say in the end you will want to run the same go-version across all your projects, all you have to do is to find the first common parent directory and put a .go-version file in there, or simply just put a file in the root directory (/.go-version) or just use the global file (~/.goenv/version).

    Not really answering your question but if you want to use Go 1.18 already there's a Go versions management tool called goenv that already has Go 1.18 and you can use already.
  • How to create custom pod with Kubebuilder

    Kubebuilder doesn’t support Go 1.17, so we need to install Go 1.16. I decided to use goenv to manager Go versions.
