PHPStorm Go plugin

Hi, I am trying to make the GO language plugin work without avail on PHPStorm (PhpStorm 2018.1 Build #PS-181.4203.565, built on March 28, 2018)
I am trying to get into GO and learn it, can anyone explain which plugin exactly I should download, and how do I create new GO files (I have question marks on them).




Hi there,

There is dedicated GoLand IDE now --

Go plugin is no longer supported in other IDEs, except IntelliJ IDEA. See


I think we still need a lightweight Go Lang plugin for PHPStorm.

Just stumbled on the need for a client's project to create WebTokens via a 3rd party API, that only supports Go, and everything I'm doing is PHP/JS, so it doesn't make sense to get a whole license just for some Go coding from time to time.

I got CLion because I need C++, but I don't see myself going the Go way, rather I'm a Flutter guy.

So, if possible, plz bring us back a minimal Go plugin to PHPStorm to unify our workflow.
