Can't Run Go Bin In Terminal

Issue

I have been executing my Golang code on Visual Studio in the terminal for the past few weeks. All of a sudden I am trying to run a program I made, and it does not run in the terminal. I type go install project then type project. I get -bash: project: command not found. In VS it shows project, but is not able to open it. I can run the program if I go through the Finder and look in the bin though which is strange. Any suggestions how to correct this?

Solution

It sounds like your $PATH environment variable isn’t set to include Go binaries. From How to Write Go Code:

For convenience, add the workspace’s bin subdirectory to your PATH:

$ export PATH=$PATH:$(go env GOPATH)/bin

Most people like to add this to their .bashrc to persist it across sessions.
