Refactorings in GoLand: Change Signature

Today, we’re going to start a series of blog posts about an essential part of the development life cycle that happens for any code we write — refactoring.

Thanks to the automation in the IDE, we can perform a lot of refactoring operations in a safe, automated, manner.

As of 2018.3, the following refactoring features are available to use in GoLand are:

Below I am going to talk about a single one, the Change Signature refactoring, with the rest of the refactorings to be discussed in follow-up articles. This feature is new in 2018.3, a version at the time of writing still in the Early Access Program (EAP) stage. A quick description of what EAP stands for can be found in this previous blog post, and you can start using it today.

Early Access Program gets Nightly builds

We have great news for people who are always on the lookout for something new.

After the official Early Access Program (EAP) is open, you no longer need to wait for further EAP builds announcements to try out the new features or the most recent bug-fixes. Now they will be available as soon as they are ready, piping hot, right out of the oven that is our developers’ code. We will provide fresh builds based on the latest development code every day during the whole Early Access Program.

Wondering what Early Access Program is about and what it can do for you? Read a short explanation in this blog post, or if you haven’t read up on the first EAP build highlights yet, now is a great time to kill two birds with one stone.

Please note:

  • The quality of nightly builds is usually below our normal standards and you may encounter many issues.
  • Nightly builds don’t have release notes.
  • Nightly builds as well as EAP builds expire 30 days after their release.

How do I get nightly builds?

Nightly builds are only available via Toolbox App, our free control panel that helps you to easily manage product updates, multiple product versions, and EAPs, as well keep all your projects in one place.

If you haven’t used Toolbox App before, you need to download and install it, then find GoLand in the list of products there and select Install Nightly. Also, for each particular product version, you can tune the settings and choose which particular updates the IDE will install automatically from the choices: release; release and EAP; or release, EAP and Nightly builds.

GoLand in the list of products in Toolbox App

Last, but by no means least: if you’re using a nightly build and you see an issue, please report it immediately to our issue tracker. It will help us provide you with more reliable software sooner!

GoLand 2018.2.3 is now available for download

GoLand 2018.2.3 is out and ready for you to download. As usual, we are providing several options to get updates on your machine: download from the website, update via Toolbox App, or apply as a patch on top of 2018.2.2 (use Help | Check for Updates).

Download GoLand 2018.2.3

This update has fixed various issues in the Go modules project related to defining types in _test packages, test coverage and imports navigation.

GO-6133 — Users who switched to Go 1.11 may have faced a bug with permission denied output while running tests. In 2018.2.3, the IDE automatically filters out and removes the -i parameter from the Go tool arguments field in the Create Run/Debug configuration window for configurations created within the editor, for Go 1.10 and later versions only. However, if you manually create a run configuration, you will have to manually remove the parameter, at least for now.

GO-6047 — The Move refactoring correctly moves .go files to new directories without losing the _test suffix in the package name.

GO-5999 — The Quick Definition tooltip that shows hyperlinks to involved symbols no longer overlaps with other references to which you may want to go.

For more details and a list of all changes, please see the release notes.

Last but not least, we would like to thank everyone that helped us identify issues and sent feedback. We love hearing from you! Please, do share your feedback with us: here in comments, in our Twitter, or our bug tracker.
