Bingo - Its Homebrew for "go install"

Do you love the simplicity of being able to download & compile golang applications with 'go install', but wish it were easier to manage the compiled binaries?

Introducing Bingo:

Bingo makes installing and managing go install-based packages a lot easier.


  • Keeps a link between the installed binary and the source package
  • Can update / uninstall binaries using the name of the binary (i.e bingo update goimports)
  • Can install binaries to a location of your choice
  • Can control the name of the installed binary
  • Can install multiple versions of the same package (using different names for the binaries)
