Running Go Program on iOS and iPadOS with iSH

How about Debugging and running your Go Program with your iPhone? Huh, Why Not

In this guide, I will be showing you how to set up a Go Environment on your iOS and iPadOS with iSH.



iSH is a Linux-like shell on iOS. You can edit files with sed and cat, move them around, and more!

You can get it here

Now that you have downloaded the App. Lets do the magic.

Install the Alpine Linux package manager apk: Run

wget -qO- | tar -xz sbin/apk.static && ./sbin/apk.static add apk-tools && rm sbin/apk.static

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Fetching Alpines repository list: Run apk update

Installing Node.js: apk add --no-cache --virtual .build-deps bash gcc musl-dev openssl go

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Test to make sure Go is installed by typing go version, you should see something along the lines of

go version go1.13.15 linux/386
