go

Compiler and libraries for Go, a statically-typed language

Go, also commonly referred to as golang, is an imperative programming language designed primarily for systems programming. Go is a compiled, statically typed language in the tradition of C and C++, but adds garbage collection, various safety features, and concurrent programming features in the style of communicating sequential processes (CSP).

Installation

Install the latest version of go as follows:

guix install go

Or install a particular version:

guix install go@1.14.15

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
