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:
- 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.
- Go-0.13.1924.zip is the latest one as of writing.
- After loading the .zip file into the program it should ask to restart Webstorm.
- You should now have successfully installed the Golang plugin on Webstorm IDE… confirm by going to Settings > Plugins
That’s all folks 🙂
