Do you think we are missing an alternative of generate or a related project?

Add another 'Utilities' Package


Package generate

Build Status Go Report Card GoDoc

Package generate runs go generate recursively on a specified path or environment variable like $GOPATH and can filter by regex

Why would I use it?

When ready to compile your application, you may need to do a bunch of setup, run some scripts or even embed static resources and instead of programming that all into a build script just add all that into //go:generate statements then run this to recursively go through and run all the setup for you.

Why was it created?

To be the best friend of https://github.com/go-playground/statics which automatically embeds the go:generate statement that embeds the static resources, but it could be used for anything.


Use go get.

go get github.com/go-playground/generate

or to update

go get -u github.com/go-playground/generate

Then import the generate package into your own code.

import "github.com/go-playground/generate"

Usage and documentation

Please see https://godoc.org/github.com/go-playground/generate for detailed usage docs.

Example Usage

  • NOTE: this would be from a bash prompt, hence the escaping

generate -i=$GOPATH -ignore=/\. -match=/github.com/MyOrganizationOrUser

run generate -h for all options
