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?
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.
