Development setup

The layout of the Fuchsia checkout is not compatible out-of-the-box with standard Go tooling like go test and gopls (the Go language server).

To set up your workspace for compatibility with Go tooling, run fx setup-go. This will create all of the symlinks and other files necessary for Go tooling and to work and be compatible with IDEs.

Note that this is only necessary if you care about IDE features and/or running go commands directly. If you're happy without IDE features and with using fx set, fx build, and fx test to work with Go, feel free to skip this setup.

Editor configuration

Your editor needs to be configured to properly use Fuchsia-vendored Go build tooling. In particular: - The GOROOT needs to be set to the Fuchsia-aware GOROOT (likely to be $FUCHSIA_DIR/out/default/host-tools/goroot, though make sure to substitute $FUCHSIA_DIR for the actual path and out/default for the GN out directory you are using). - "fuchsia" needs to be added to the go build tags.
