Installing Go on Linux In One Command

I have a Linux workstation I regularly use and I need to develop in Go on it. So, I want an easy way to install and upgrade Go. With Go, I need to use the latest version and usually don’t want the version I would get with apt-get or the systems conservative package manager.

I’ve become accustomed to using one command to install Go and a similar command to upgrade it.

Install Go:

$ gofish install go

Upgrade Go:

$ gofish upgrade go

What you see here is that I’m using GoFish, a Homebrew like, package manager. It works pretty well and makes the installation experience much simpler.
