 JetBrains has announced a commercial IDE that extends the IntelliJ platform with the coding assistance and tool integrations for the Go language.

Codenamed Gogland, the new IDE is in a private early access program (EAP) that developers can join. JetBrains has rebuilt the go-lang-idea-plugin, the open-source initiative, from the ground up to provide:

"a more stable, extensible and feature-rich development experience".

according to a post on the JetBrains blog. The fact there are now 30K monthly active users was enough to convince JetBrains to fork the plugin and introduce their own IDE for Go. The result is Gogland.

Gogland uses code analysis to provide code completion, quick navigation, error analysis, formatting, and refactorings. Tools available for the IDE include a rest-runner, coverage tool, debugger and version control integration.
