# (Go Lang) Go by Example Notes (GBEN) Emacs Setup

## Goal

Go by Example is Mark McGranaghan’s “hands-on introduction to Go using annotated example programs”. Under the license I’m going to

• Convert all of the examples to Org-Mode Literate Programming documents
• Add, remove and modify them making it my personal notebook
• Add the tag GBEN to track them
• Refer to this post to provide attribution

## Configuration

How to setup Emacs and Org-Mode for GBEN:

• Set up Emacs to your liking
• Set up Go, Required Components, ob-go and copy as much of my Go config as you like. For example it includes a Hydra for compiling and more
• Download this post from GitHub to see the configuration of the source block
• If you want full source code you can
• Expand the source block with org-babel-expand-src-block for your inspection
• I tried expanding the source block into an example and didn’t figure it out. When I do I will update these examples. However, it is probably OK if I don’t because I have the source code.
• Set Org-Mode version 9 or greater
• Here is the base configuration

<<<ECM Information>>>
As Of: 2017-08-08T20-51-57

((:session . "none")
(:results . "replace")
(:exports . "code")
(:cache . "no")
(:noweb . "no")
(:hlines . "no")

• Here is the configuration for the source blocks however I will be using output for nearly all of the examples despite my default configuration being scalar!
