Using the buffalo framework,
after bootstraping it via
buffalo new <project_name>
I am trying to run
Expecting to see:
project running on port 3000
But I am getting those error messages instead
actions/app.go:4:2: missing go.sum entry for module providing package github.com/gobuffalo/buffalo (imported by sc_api/actions); to add:go get sc_api/actions actions/app.go:13:2: missing go.sum entry for module providing package github.com/gobuffalo/mw-csrf (imported by sc_api/actions); to add: go get sc_api/actions
actions/app.go has been generated by buffalo, but in case you are wondering the error does match the import statement in this file.
// app.go package actions import ( "github.com/gobuffalo/buffalo" // 1rst line "github.com/gobuffalo/envy" forcessl "github.com/gobuffalo/mw-forcessl" paramlogger "github.com/gobuffalo/mw-paramlogger" "github.com/unrolled/secure" "sc_api/models" "github.com/gobuffalo/buffalo-pop/v2/pop/popmw" csrf "github.com/gobuffalo/mw-csrf" // 2nd line i18n "github.com/gobuffalo/mw-i18n" "github.com/gobuffalo/packr/v2" )
What does it mean ? How do I fix it ?
It seems the issue has nothing to do with Buffalo and more with my lack of understanding of Go in general.
go mod tidy solved the issue
This command goes through the
go.mod file to resolve dependencies:
- delete the packages that are not needed
- download those needed
- update the
I am still unsure which of those actions did the trick… but the project runs now.
ps: I’ll let the in-depth explanation/correction to the Go wizard out here.
