JetBrains GoLand Overview

JetBrains GoLand is an integrated development environment (IDE) from JetBrains, specifically designed to work with the Go programming language. It provides developers with a convenient environment for writing code, analyzing and debugging Go programs.

GoLand IDE offers a wide range of Go-specific tools, such as code completion, quick project navigation, error analysis and refactoring. Thanks to integration with the IntelliJ IDEA platform, developers can also take advantage of many other useful features such as version control, integration with build and test systems, and support for various programming languages.

One of the key features of GoLand is smart code analysis, which helps identify potential problems and errors in the program code before they occur at runtime. This allows developers to significantly speed up the development process and improve the quality of their product.

In addition, GoLand IDE provides convenient integration with popular development tools such as Git and Mercurial version control systems, and also allows you to customize the work environment according to the individual needs of the developer.

Overall, GoLand is a powerful Go development tool that enables developers to work efficiently and help create quality software.

JetBrains GoLand Features

  • Coding assistance:
    The IDE’s smart completion will help you write new code by automatically completing statements for you. Ctrl + Shift + Space gives you a list of the most significant characters applicable in the current context. When you select a proposal, it adds the appropriate package import statements on the fly.
    Inspections and Quick Fixes
    The IDE has built-in inspections that check your code on the fly as you type it. When they find problematic code, they provide you with quick fixes that you can apply by simply pressing Alt + Enter.
  • Refactoring
    Available refactorings include renaming and extraction, allowing you to quickly and safely change your code.
    Quick Navigation
    It only takes one click to switch to super method, implementation, usage, declaration and more. Navigate to any class, file or symbol, or even any IDE action or tool window in one click.
    Quick Popups
    If you need more information about a symbol in a carriage, use quick popups: for example, Quick Documentation, Quick Definition, Show Usage, Structure, etc.
    Some popups are available even when using code addition: they provide additional information about selected offer.
  • Code Generation
    In some cases, the IDE may generate trivial code for you. For example, if you press Ctrl + O, the IDE will help you implement any interface by generating its methods.
    Detecting Recursive Calls
    If there is a recursive call inside your function, the IDE will detect it and mark it in the gutter, making your code even easier to read and understand.
  • Expression Type
    The Expression Type action is accessible via Alt + and is always at hand when you need to know the type of any expression in the caret.
    Highlighting exit points
    Each function can have more than one return and panic statement. To quickly find them all, press Ctrl + Shift + F7 when the cursor is inserted into the func, return, or panic keyword. This will help you quickly understand how the function works.
  • Finding Usage
    The Find Usage feature can not only find all the places in the code where a symbol is used, but also group them by type: for example, reading, writing, etc.
  • Formatter
    The built-in formatter provides functionality equal to go fmt.
  • Code Editor
    Semantic Highlighting – This option extends standard syntax highlighting with unique colors for each parameter and local variable.
    Parameter Tooltips
    The editor shows parameter tooltips for literals and nulls used as method arguments. These hints make the code much more readable.
    Built-in tools and integrations
  • debugger
    The IDE comes with a full-featured debugger that supports common debugger features: tracing, expression evaluation, displaying inline values, and others. The debugger works for both applications and tests.
  • coverage
    If you run your code with a coverage statement, the IDE collects the data and displays it both in an aggregated view and on a per-statement basis in the editor.
  • Test Runner
    The IDE provides a special interface for running and debugging tests, tests, and benchmarks.
    Go Tools
    The Code > Go Tools menu allows you to run Go tools in your project without switching to the command line.
    Editor provides syntax highlighting for Go build files.
  • Version Management
    Built-in Git integration lets you view revision history, manage branches, merge conflicts, and more. For other version control systems, similar functions are available through the corresponding plugins: Mercurial, SVN and others.
  • The IDE terminal
    comes with a built-in terminal. Depending on your platform, you may be working with the command line, Far, powershell, or bash. Bring up a terminal using Alt + F12 and execute any command without leaving the IDE.
  • Docker
    The IDE includes a plugin that allows you to connect to locally running Docker machines to manage Docker Compose images, containers, and services.
  • Front-end and back-end development of JavaScript, HTML and CSS
    The IDE inherits WebStorm’s first-class support for front-end languages ​​and frameworks. The IDE offers top-notch coding assistance for JavaScript, TypeScript, Dart, React, and many more. Angular and Node.js support is available through plugins.
  • Database Tools
    Benefit from intelligent coding assistance when editing SQL; connect to live databases; execute requests; view and export data; and even manage your diagrams in a visual interface – right from the IDE.
  • Ecosystem Plugin
    Over 10 years of development on the IntelliJ platform provides GoLand 50+ IDE plugins of varying nature, including support for additional VCSs, integration with various tools and frameworks, and editor enhancements such as Vim emulation.
