How to set Komodo Edit as Go IDE with komodo-go

LiteIDE 23.1 is quite good enough IDE for Go in my opinion, the autocomplete and method hint works fine. All we need after installing is just configure the Environment file (View > Edit Environment) such as this:


Don't forget to change the ownership or you won't able to save:

sudo chown `whoami` /usr/share/liteide/liteenv/*

Also don't forget to add custom GOPATH (View > Manage GOPATH..) if necessary

But sometimes the jump to declaration feature doesn't work at all.
There are another alternative that is komodo-edit, you can install it using:

pacman -Sy komodo-edit

Then you could clone the komodo-go repository:

cd /tmp
git clone https://github.com/Komodo/komodo-go
cd komodo-go

Make sure that you have installed Python 2.x, and then just built the extension

/opt/komodo-edit/lib/sdk/bin/koext build

Then drag the .xpi file into Komodo Extension Manager.
Now, install godef to make it support jump to declaration command:

go get -u -v code.google.com/p/rog-go/exp/cmd/godef

Now your komodo-edit with Go integration will work as expected.
