Introduction

GoReleaser is a release automation tool for Go projects. The goal is to simplify the build, release and publish steps while providing variant customization options for all steps.

It has been widely adopted by the Go community in the past 5 years, with thousands of projects it to manage their releases. You can check some of our users out here.

GoReleaser was built with CI tools in mind - you only really need to download and execute it in your build script. Installing it in your machine is optional.

Your entire release process can be customized through a .goreleaser.yml file. Once you set it up, every time you want to create a new release, all you need to do is tag and run goreleaser release:
