How to set vscode format golang code on save?

Issue

I’m using vscode with Go extensions to edit golang source code. Each time I want to format code, I have to press Ctrl-Shift-i on linux, Shift-Alt-F on Windows, or Ctrl-Shift-p and type format. Is it possible to set format on save, that is, when I press ctrl-s, it format the code automatically using go.fmt (or something alike)?

Solution

You should install this plugin: https://github.com/golang/vscode-go. One of the options is to set "auto format" on save: go.formatOnSave": false. It uses the Golang tooling for formatting.
