Fix Webstorm “Plugin ‘Go Lang Plugin’ is incompatible with this installation

If you are running Webstorm IDE (my version as of writing is 2016.3.2) and you are trying to ‘install from disk’ the Golang plugin and get this error:

You may have tried to upload a .zip version 0.171.XXX and got this error. To fix it:

  1. Download plugin version (0.13.xxx) just download the latest one that begins with 0.13 (disregard the top of the list that has a version 0.171.xx as they are incompatible with Webstorm.
  2. Go-0.13.1924.zip is the latest one as of writing.
  3. After loading the .zip file into the program it should ask to restart Webstorm.
  4. You should now have successfully installed the Golang plugin on Webstorm IDE… confirm by going to Settings > Plugins


That’s all folks  🙂
