  • GVM

    Go Version Manager

  • Ah neat. For ref: https://github.com/moovweb/gvm. Not sure how I never saw that one. I guess I just probably googled "update golang bash github" at some point a few years ago and went with it.

  • update-golang

    update-golang is a script to easily fetch and install new Golang releases with minimum system intrusion

  • On my WSL2 install I was using gvm before, now I'm using https://github.com/udhos/update-golang, you can specify versions and it caches the downloads, so you can switch between versions using the script. Since it uses the 'official' install process, it works as expected most of the time (I had a couple issues with gvm, for example).

  • go

    The Go programming language

  • There are very interesting accepted proposals that touch on this topic: https://github.com/golang/go/issues/57001 https://github.com/golang/go/issues/56986

  • pkgx

    the last thing you’ll install
