    My experience with gui in golang is pretty bad. I took a project which used , and unfortunately the library doesn't have a good documentation. So I had to figure out a whole lot of things by looking into example snippets or via hit and trial. Moreover, it's platform specific. So yeah wasn't a good deal. By the way, if you are thinking of targetting cross-platform then some HTML based GUI library would be much better choice.
