Code Inspections in Go Template

This topic lists all GoLand code inspections available in Go Template.

You can toggle specific inspections or change their severity level on the Editor | Inspections page of the IDE settings Ctrl+Alt+S.

InspectionDescriptionDefault Severity
Duplicate variable

Reports duplicate Go Template variables that are declared in the same scope.

Duplicating a variable reassigns the existing variable with the same name. This operation might lead to different unpredictable issues.


{{$v := 0}}{{$v := 1}}{{$v}} is 0. {{/* evaluates to '1 is 0' */}} {{$v := 0}}{{$w := 1}}{{$v}} is 0. {{/* works as expected */}}

Error Error
Unknown variable

Reports usages of unknown variables in Go Templates.

Parsing of such templates will cause panic because variables must be declared before usage.


{{$v}} is zero. {{/* bad, $v is unknown */}} {{$v := 0}}{{$v}} is zero. {{/* good */}}
