    As an alternative, I use asdf[0] which is written in bash. It allows you to manage versions of any package through plugins. Plugins can be written in any language (as long as they can be set to chmod +x). Most plugins are written in bash.

    Though there is a wealth of plugins, what's nice is that it's trivial to write your plugin. So if something doesn't exist yet, or you have some internal tool you need to version, it takes less than an hour to write a plugin.

    You could try asdf. It's an easy tool to manage different languages and tools by version. This way you can have your specific version of golang installed and even commit a version to your project. It's kinda platform independent. I use it on Fedora, Ubuntu and MacOS.
