I started working on a
Go project and it uses some private modules from Github private repos and whenever I try to run
go run main.go it gives me a below
410 Gone error:
verifying github.com/repoURLfirstname.lastname@example.org+incompatible/go.mod: github.com/repoURLemail@example.com+incompatible/go.mod: reading https://sum.golang.org/lookup/github.com/!repoURLfirstname.lastname@example.org+incompatible: 410 Gone
I can easily clone private repo from terminal which means my
ssh keys are configured correctly. I read here that I need to set
GOPRIVATE environment variable but I am not sure how to do that.
Can anyone answer or point to the relevant tutorial?
Go: v1.13, OS: macOS Mojave
go env -w GOPRIVATE=github.com/repoURL/private-repo
If you want to allow all private repos from your organization
go env -w GOPRIVATE=github.com/<OrgNameHere>/*
Check "Module configuration for non-public modules" for more information:
The GOPRIVATE environment variable controls which modules the go command considers to be private (not available publicly) and should therefore not use the proxy or checksum database. The variable is a comma-separated list of glob patterns (in the syntax of Go’s path.Match) of module path prefixes. For example,
causes the go command to treat as private any module with a path prefix matching either pattern, including git.corp.example.com/xyzzy, rsc.io/private, and rsc.io/private/quux.
The ‘go env -w’ command (see ‘go help env’) can be used to set these variables for future go command invocations.
Note on the usage of ssh:
If you use ssh to access git repo (locally hosted), you might want to add the following to your
[url "ssh://email@example.com/"] insteadOf = https://git.local.intranet/
go commands to be able to access the git server.
