GOPATH specifies the location of your go workspace. By default this will be $HOME/go. You should set your $GOPATH in .zshrc or .bash_profile to be used later in scripts or shell. Add the followings into your .bash_profile: export GOPATH=$HOME/go export PATH=$PATH:$GOPATH/bin Reload your shell and done. To confirm that it’s working, enter $GOPATH in your shell and it should take you to the go workspace directory.
