Go language install and configuration in Windows and Visual Studio Code as IDE

Hi folks,

Today I am going to describe you the best way to install and configure the Go language.


From the Go language from its official web page

After installation, you would be able to program and run the code from any terminal.

What else?

Open your .go file in Visual Studio Code, it asks you something else. What was it?

"The "go-outline" command is not available. Run "go get -v" to install."

What you need to do?

First, in Visual Studio Code set the the following in "settings.json" file.

"go.toolsGopath": "C:\\Go"

Note: If you are getting the following error, then click on "Install All"
The "go-outline" command is not available. Run "go get -v" to install.

  • Get the location, where it is installing
  • Copy the bin and pkg folder contents to your Go installed folders.
  • Delete the folder which VS Code used to download the content.

That's all.. you should be able to code in Visual Studio Code as well without having 2 different go installed folders.

Happy Go coding!!

Today, I would be explaining the way to maintain the DB with data persistent when connecting to docker.

System Status

Postgresql DB container is in Docker
Windows 10 PC
Linux containers


Whenever I restart docker/PC the database wiped off due to container is stopped.


Create a docker volume

Syntax: docker volume create <>
Example: docker volume create pgdata

Start the container with volume option

Syntax: docker run --rm --name <> -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=<> -d -p 5432:5432 -v <>:/var/lib/postgresql/data <>
Example: docker run --rm --name pgcontainer -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=MyPassword -d -p 5432:5432 -v pgdata:/var/lib/postgresql/data postgres

node server address in use error resolution for Windows and Linux machines

Hi friends,

Today, I have come across a situation, where my node server existed unproperly and address has been blocked. Because of which, I am unable to run the node server on the same port.

System configuration

Running my node server on port 3000.


Windows Machine

We will first try to find whether the port has been still in listening mode.
netstat -ano | find "LISTENING" | find "3000"
When the above command returns result then take the last number (Process ID)
We will kill the process with the following command.
> taskkill /f /pid

Linux Machine

> netstat -nlp | grep :3000
> kill -9

Now, you will be able to run the node server on the same port which has been blocked.

bash: C:/Program: No such file or directory error solution in git bash with windows directory path having spaces

Hi friends,

Today, I have come across a situation where I have to execute the gitbash on windows with linux commands.

The escape character doesn't alone solve the problem


Setting up an alias for bash where the path includes space

$ alias DOCKER_HOME=C:/Program Files/Docker/Docker


bash: C:/Program: No such file or directory


$ alias DOCKER_HOME=C:/"Program\ Files"/Docker/Docker

Hope my solution helps you in resolving the issue.
