Run from the editor
If you are not going to pass any parameters to your program, and your program does not require any specific actions to be performed before start, you can run it right from the editor.
Click in the gutter near the class declaration and select Run.
To run a script, open it in the editor or select it in the Project tool window, and then select Run <script file name> from the context menu.
Click in the gutter near the class declaration and select Modify Run Configuration.
Modify the run/debug configuration as needed. For example, if you need to run your program with arguments, add the arguments to the Program arguments field.
When the application starts, you can view its output and interact with it in the Run tool window. Every run/debug configuration creates a separate tab when you run it.
For more information about tool windows and how to manage them, see the Tool windows topic.
List of fields in run/debug configurations
The fields that appear in the right-hand pane display the default settings for the selected configuration type.
A building scope for your application. File and Package scopes work similarly in tests and compilation/running configurations (in terms of the scope they cover).
A full import path of the package that you want to compile (for example,
You can press Control+Space to see a list of available packages.
A directory for the executable file.
Run after build
Execute the application after the build.
Directory that is used for the built application. If you have any code that creates relative files or directories, they will be relative to this directory.
Environment variables for your application.
To edit environment variables, click the Browse button at the end of the field. In the Environment Variables dialog, click the Add button and add the environment variables that you need.
Go tool arguments
Arguments for the go tool (for example,
Use all custom build tags
All tags that are applied during the build. Tags are listed in settings Control+Alt+S under.
Arguments for the built application. Also, you can use macros in this field.
Run with sudo
Grant sudo privileges for the application.
Name of the current module.
Add tasks that you want to launch before the launch of the selected run/debug configuration. To add a task click the Add button Alt+Insert and select the tool that you want to add.
Store as project file
Enable this option to save your configuration as a project file and share it with team members through VCS.
On the toolbar of the Run tool window, click or press Shift+F10.
Stop and pause applications
When you stop a program, its process is interrupted and exits immediately. When you pause a program, it continues running in the background, but its output is suspended.
Stop a program
In the Run tool window, click on the toolbar. Alternatively, press Control+F2 and select the process to stop.
Pause the program output
Right-click in the Run tool window and select Pause Output from the context menu. Use the same toggle to resume the program.
Show running processes
You can view the list of all active run or debug sessions and navigate between them.
Go to Run | Show Running List. In the top-right corner of the editor, GoLand shows a list with all active applications.
When you run, debug, or test your code, GoLand creates a temporary run/debug configuration. This configuration includes all the details of how you want to perform the operation. Usually, a temporary configuration is enough to run or debug your code. You can use the temporary configuration to run your application one time, or save it for future use.
Depending on your purposes, you can edit existing or create new configurations. For more information about editing you configurations, refer to Run/debug configurations.
If you re-run an application, the new output overwrites the contents of the tab. To preserve the output of an application, even if you re-run it, pin the output tab: right-click the tab and select Pin Tab.
