Go Simple cross compilation with go build


Example

From your project directory, run the go build command and specify the operating system and architecture target with the GOOS and GOARCH environment variables:

Compiling for Mac (64-bit):

GOOS=darwin GOARCH=amd64 go build

Compiling for Windows x86 processor:

GOOS=windows GOARCH=386 go build

You might also want to set the filename of the output executable manually to keep track of the architecture:

GOOS=windows GOARCH=386 go build -o appname_win_x86.exe

From version 1.7 and onwards you can get a list of all possible GOOS and GOARCH combinations with:

go tool dist list

(or for easier machine consumption go tool dist list -json)
