A simple app that lets you self host your Go modules using your own domains.

Example: yourdomain.com/x/your-module


I got annoyed with the nginx hacks I previously used as they kept getting longer and longer to support some modules.

Then I moved some projects from Mercurial to Git and had to update various projects for the new path. This was also very annoying.

I looked for something to solve this issue for me but I didn't find anything that scratched my itch. So I just wrote the solution I wanted.

  • It was written for Go 1.20+
  • sqlite3
  • GNU Make


$ git clone https://git.code.netlandish.com/~petersanchez/gohome
$ cd gohome
$ make  # (or gmake)
$ cp config.example.ini config.ini
$ vim config.ini  # use your favorite editor
$ ./gohome migrate
$ ./gohome

Now load your install in a web browser. For instance, if this is on a local development machine the defaults in config.example.ini are

You'll be asked to set the default password. This is needed when adding/editing modules to the database. Once set you'll be asked to login, enter the same password you just set.

Now just click the Add button and add your modules.

If you're installing this behind a reverse proxy (ie, nginx) you'll need to add the configuration for the path you're using. Here's an example from my nginx config for a domain I have this running on:

location /x/ {
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;


The config.example.ini is pretty straight forward with comments to help. Really just change the connection-string and root variables and that's probably the only thing you need to change.
