Frustrated Fedora21 trying to Go

Posted at — May 6, 2015

Go once had a number of vim files that I could just copy into my .vim folder. Recently someone on the go team decided to extract those files which has now been propagated through all of the various curated distributions(read RPM etc).

As I try to reconstruct my toolbox I’m struggling not to import every since 3rd party library under the sun. I also want my toolbox to be as mobile/agile as possible. By mobile I do not mean laptop or smartphone nor do I refer to the agile manifesto. I’m referring to the fact that I manage many hundreds of systems and they are all in different levels of operation and I need my tools to come with me wherever I go and so they need to be mobile.

vim-go is neither agile nor mobile.
