    🍻 Default formulae for the missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

    Looks like it's often some user issuing a PR for an updated version of the formula. A number of changes have been authored over the past few months, sometimes in a series by the same user, sometimes by different users. Here's the most recent PR, bumping it up to 1.17.8 about 2 weeks ago.

  • GVM

  • g

    Simple go version manager, gluten-free

  • asdf-golang

    golang plugin for asdf version manager

  • asdf

    Extendable version manager with support for Ruby, Node.js, Elixir, Erlang & more

    If you're willing to install a different installer, I've found asdf-vm ( to work excellent for Go (among many other languages). Plugin based version manager so you can quickly install different versions.

  • goup

    Command to install or update Go on macOS, BSD or Linux

    There’s as well.

  • goenv

    :blue_car: Like pyenv and rbenv, but for Go.

    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.
