package.json scripts in Go projects?
Fear not, my friend. Makefiles are here to rescue you from the scriptless abyss.
In this blog post, we'll explore some Makefile patterns that'll have you saying "npm who?" in no
In Go, building your project means compiling the source code and generating the executable binary. In a Makefile, define a target called "build" that executes the necessary Go build command. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Check it out:
build: go build -o myapp main.go
Running tests is soooo important. It's like brushing your teeth, but for your code. Create a target called "test" that executes the Go test command and reports the results. You got this! 💪
test: go test ./...
Use the "clean" target in your Makefile to remove build artifacts and temporary files, keeping your project directory clean. Give your code some love and keep it tidy with Makefiles! 🧹
clean: rm -f myapp
To execute your Go program easily, define a target called "run" in the Makefile. This target uses the "go run" command to run your Go code. Run, Forrest, run! 🏃♂️
run: go run main.go
