How to Download and Install Go 1.18 on Mac and Use Go Modules




Go is an open-source programming language supported by Google that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Go has many features that make it attractive for developers, such as fast compilation, concurrency, garbage collection, and a rich standard library.


Go modules are a new way of managing dependencies in Go that was introduced in Go 1.11 and became the default mode in Go 1.13. Go modules allow you to specify the versions of the packages that your code depends on, and make it easier to work with multiple modules in a project.

  • Go to the and click on the go1.18.darwin-amd64.pkg link to download the installer package for Mac OS X.



  • Open the downloaded file and follow the instructions to install Go on your system. The installer will create a /usr/local/go directory where it will store the Go files, and it will add /usr/local/go/bin to your PATH environment variable.



  • Verify that you have installed Go correctly by opening a terminal and typing the following command:



$ go version go version go1.18 darwin/amd64


If you see the output above, you have successfully installed Go on your Mac.


Creating a New Module with Go 1.18




To create a new module with Go 1.18, follow these steps:


  • Create a new directory for your module somewhere outside $GOPATH/src, where $GOPATH is the directory where you store your Go projects. For example, you can create a directory called hello in your home directory by typing the following command in your terminal:



$ mkdir /hello


  • Change your current directory to the newly created directory by typing the following command in your terminal:



$ cd /hello


  • Use the go mod init command to initialize a go.mod file that defines your module path and dependency requirements. The module path is the import path that other modules will use to import your module. For example, you can use example.com/hello as your module path by typing the following command in your terminal:



$ go mod init example.com/hello go: creating new go.mod: module example.com/hello


This will create a go.mod file in your current directory with the following content:


module example.com/hello go 1.18


The first line specifies the module path, and the second line specifies the Go version that your module requires.


  • Write some simple code in your module and save it as hello.go. For example, you can write a function that prints "Hello, world!" to the standard output by typing the following code in your text editor and saving it as hello.go:



package main import "fmt" func main() fmt.Println("Hello, world!")


  • Use the go run command to execute your code by typing the following command in your terminal:



$ go run hello.go Hello, world!


If you see the output above, you have successfully created and run a new module with Go 1.18.


Adding a Dependency to Your Module with Go 1.18




To add a dependency to your module with Go 1.18, follow these steps:


  • Use the go get command to add a dependency to your go.mod file. The dependency is a package or a module that your code imports and uses. For example, you can add a dependency on the module, which provides functions for generating famous quotes, by typing the following command in your terminal:



$ go get rsc.io/quote/v3 go: downloading rsc.io/quote/v3 v3.1.0 go: downloading rsc.io/sampler v1.3.0 go: downloading golang.org/x/text v0.0.0-20170915032832-14c0d48ead0c


This will download the dependency and its transitive dependencies, and update your go.mod file with the following content:


module example.com/hello go 1.18 require rsc.io/quote/v3 v3.1.0


The require directive specifies the version of the dependency that your module requires.


  • Import the dependency in your code and call its functions. For example, you can modify your hello.go file to use the rsc.io/quote/v3.HelloV3() function, which returns a quote from a famous person, by typing the following code in your text editor and saving it as hello.go:



package main import ( "fmt" "rsc.io/quote/v3" ) func main() fmt.Println(quote.HelloV3())


  • Use the go run command to execute your code by typing the following command in your terminal:



$ go run hello.go Hello, world. -Rene Descartes


If you see the output above, you have successfully added and used a dependency in your module with Go 1.18.


  • (Optional) Use the go mod tidy command to remove unused dependencies from your go.mod file by typing the following command in your terminal:



$ go mod tidy


This will remove any dependencies that are not directly or indirectly imported by your code, and update your go.mod file accordingly. This is a good practice to keep your go.mod file clean and consistent.
