you would probably not install these like libraries

github.com/DisposaBoy/GoSublime (2426☆) †

Vim-go - vim plugin
github.com/fatih/vim-go (5665☆) †

† uninstallable via go get, skipped by below install script

Quick install script

for library in `curl -s \
https://gist.github.com/squarism/914b26e316a2cb204188 \
| grep -v † | grep -E "^<code>.*</code>" | sed -e 's/<[^>]*>//g' | awk '{print $1}'`
do go get -u $library
  echo '-->' $library done.
done

# some above are not golang repos or have special installation paths
brew install gpm
go get github.com/dotcloud/docker/utils

Many of these require dependencies, like yum, rpm, apt-get or brew install fun times.

TODO: list out all the depenencies for like one platform (mac) as a hint.

brew install zmq hg gflagsl

If you don't have go this do this in homebrew:

brew install go --cross-compile-common
