Go lang – Revel Web Framework – .gitignore file starter sample

Posted by Venkatt Guhesan on January 25, 2016

gorevelframeworkFor those of you trying to create a new Go Language – Revel Web Framework based project, here is a sample .gitignore file.

But before I provide you with the information, we need to discuss the project structure. If you visit the Revel site here, you will see their organization structure of a Revel project. In my case, their my_gocode/ folder is much deeper in what I store in my BitBucket account (or GitHub for that matter).

.
├── code
│   ├── bin
│   │   └── revel
│   ├── pkg
│   └── src
│       ├── github.com
...
│       ├── golang.org
...

│           └── web

│               │   ├── init.go
│               │   └── views
│               │       ├── App
│               │       │   └── Index.html
│               │       ├── debug.html
│               │       ├── errors

│               │       └── header.html

│               │   └── js
│               │       └── jquery-1.9.1.min.js
│               ├── README.md
│               └── tests
│                   └── apptest.go
├── design
│   ├── logo-design1.png
│   ├── logo-design1.psd
│   ├── logo-final.png
│   └── logo-design2.psd
├── resources
│   └── some-materialcss-templates
...

As you can see my structure also includes some PhotoShop artefacts that also needs to be stored in my BitBucket (GIT) project. In my case, I want to ignore some of the go lang artefacts and revel artefacts.

So in the project-root, I created a .gitignore with the following contents relative to my project-root:

code/bin/
code/pkg/
code/src/github.com/
code/src/golang.org/
code/src/gopkg.in/

The above tells GIT to ignore the “github.com/**”, “golang.org/**” and “gopkg.in/**” subdirectories. As you add additional dependencies, you can revise and add to the above .gitignore file as needed.

Cheers!
