Of course Raspberry Pi’s Raspbian has it’s Debian package manager and you can indeed use that to install GO on you Raspberry Pi. However that is an older version of Go, so here is a way to to quickly install or update GoLang on a Raspberry Pi with the latest version.
Install Go now!
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cashoefman/How_To_SetUp_Go_On_Raspberry_Pi/HEAD/getgo.sh)"
Paste that in a Raspberry Pi Terminal shell prompt. The script explains what it will do and then pauses before it does it.
Set Path variables
To make things work properly you will have to set a few variables in the appropriate file, here are a few examples.
echo export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin" >> $HOME/.zshrc echo export GOPATH="$HOME/golang" >> $HOME/.zshrc source $HOME/.zshrc
echo export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin" >> $HOME/.profile echo export GOPATH="$HOME/golang" >> $HOME/.profile source $HOME/.profile
Now to quickly test and see if it all works type ‘go version’
If you want to upgrade to a newer version of Go, remove the older installed version first with ‘sudo rm -r /usr/local/go’
