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.

GoReleaser is built for CI tools; you only need to download and execute it in your build script. Of course, you can also install it locally.

You can customize your release process by creating a .goreleaser.yml file.

The idea started with a simple shell script, but it quickly became more complex and I also wanted to publish binaries via Homebrew taps, which would have made the script even more “hacky”, so I let go of that and rewrote the whole thing in Go.
