I am using BorgBackup to backup my entire home, exluding some folders (cache, node_modules, etc).
I want to have a backup of all my code (even though I keep it on github and my private Gogs instance), so I didn’t want to exclude the entire GOPATH, but because of all the installed third-party dependencies, it grew pretty big in size.
Multiple GOPATH entries.
You can use multiple directories as your GOPATH.
$ go env GOPATH /home/me/.local/share/go:/home/me/code/go
The way this works,
go get defaults to the first directory (so,
~/.local/share/go), so the third-party code lands there, and for my personal projects, I can manually create the directories in
