GoLand tip of the day: clean up GoLand leftover cache and log folders Frederic Marand Sat, 2018-12-08 17:10

When GoLand is upgraded from one version to the next, the deployment process adds a new set of configuration, cache, and log directories. But it does not remove the versions associated to the previous versions of the IDE, to ease rolling back to the previous version if an upgrade happens to cause an issue.

So after some time, removing these now-unused folders will regain some disk space, possibly more than 1 GB. Here are their respective locations and content on macOS:

GoLand tip of the day: when Make run configurations don't find go Frederic Marand Fri, 2018-10-12 13:31

In a GoLand 2018.3 EAP run configuration, a Makefile run configuration finds the go binary on macOS, but not on Ubuntu, causing make targets like this one to fail:
client/test.wasm: client/main.go
# Building WASM
GOARCH=wasm GOOS=js go build -o client/test.wasm client/main.go

/usr/bin/make -f (some edited path)/Makefile client/test.wasm
/bin/sh: 1: go: not found
make: *** [client/test.wasm] Error 127

Simple enough to fix...
