Go Fmt

New in version 3.0.

The Go toolchain includes an automatic formatter, go fmt which all code is expected to be run through in order to maintain consistency throughout a codebase.

This tool will report if .go files are incorrectly formatted, suggesting to the user that they should reformat it.

Supported File Types

The following are supported by this tool:

  • Go: *.go


This tool requires that Go is installed on the system running the Review Bot worker. Go is available for download on Linux/Mac/Windows.

See the official documentation on installing Go.


Go Location

If the go command is in a non-standard location, and can’t be found in Review Bot’s PATH environment variable, then you’ll need to specify the path in the Review Bot worker config file:

exe_paths = {
    'go': '/path/to/go',

You will need to restart the Review Bot worker after making this change.

Enabling Go Fmt in Review Board

You’ll need to add a Review Bot configuration in Review Board (see Tool Configurations).

There are no configuration options available for this tool.
