I am having difficulty in importing a local go file into another go file.
My project structure is like something below
-samplego --pkg --src ---github.com ----xxxx -----a.go -----b.go --bin
I am trying to import a.go inside b.go. I tried the following,
import "a" import "github.com/xxxx/a"
None of these worked…I understand I have to meddle up with GOPATH but I couldn’t get it right. Presently my GOPATH is pointing to samplego(/workspace/samplego).I get the below error
cannot find package "a" in any of: /usr/local/go/src/pkg/a (from $GOROOT) /workspace/samplego/src/a (from $GOPATH)
Also, how does GOPATH work when these source files are imported into another project/module? Would the local imports be an issue then? What is the best practice in this case - is it to have just one go file in module(with associated tests)?
