How Are The Builds Performed?

The following commands are run for the directory of the current file: * go install . (for normal .go files) * go test -o {tmpdir} -c . (for _test.go files)

Why Are You Running go install Instead Of go build?

gocode (and a few other tools, like gotype) work on .a files (i.e. the package object archive), and the way to keep these up to date is to run go install periodically. This ensures your autocomplete suggestions are kept up to date without having to resort to gocode set autobuild true :tada:.

But What About gb?

We are open to suggestions for detecting a package which is built with gb; please feel free to submit a pull request that detects a gb package without any explicit configuration and runs it.


The package has CI for OS X, Windows and Ubuntu.
