Command rango

Rango is a REPL (Read-Evaluate-Print-Loop) tool in Go for Go.

Get the sources

go get -v github.com/emicklei/rango


go install ...rango


rango [projectname]

Example session

> rango
[rango] .q = quit, .v = variables, .s = source, .u = undo, !<source> = eval once , =<source> = print once
> m,y := "rango the chameleon", 2012
rango the chameleon,2012
> import "strings"
> m = strings.ToUpper(m)
> !print(y+1)
> =y+1


.q(uit)		exit rango
.v(ars)		show all variable names
.s(ource)	print the source entered since startup
.u(undo)	the last entry
!<source>		execute this source only once


import declaration
(almost) any go source that you can put inside the main() function
if <projectname> is given on startup then
	if a <projectname>.changes file exists then rango will process its contents first.
	all entries are logged in a <projectname>.changes file.


Installation of Go 1+ SDK
Because it depends on sh (e.g. bash) it only runs on a Go supported *nix OS

How it is made

Rango uses a generate-compile-run loop. Successively, for each new command line entry, a new program is generated in Go, compiled in Go and run on your machine. Any compiler error of the generated source is captured and printed by rango. The output (stdout and stderr) of the generated program is captured and printed by rango.


interpret compiler errors and translate line numbers
use goreadline? termbox-go? for better cursor handling (up,down,complete...)
