    Run a command when files change

    There are tools like https://github.com/cespare/reflex that run a command when specific files are changing. You could use it to run go test whenever one of your files changes, so the changes would be reflected instantly in the terminal.

    ☁️ Live reload for Go apps

    IIRC VS Code has option to run tests after each save. If you want a more terminal way I recommend https://github.com/cosmtrek/air and configure to run go test on each change.
