Simple cross compilation with go build

Title: Simple cross compilation with go build

From your project directory, run the go build command and specify the operating system and architecture target with the GOOS and GOARCH environment variables:

Compiling for Mac (64-bit):

GOOS=darwin GOARCH=amd64 go build

Compiling for Windows x86 processor:

GOOS=windows GOARCH=386 go build

You might also want to set the filename of the output executable manually to keep track of the architecture:

GOOS=windows GOARCH=386 go build -o appname_win_x86.exe

From version 1.7 and onwards you can get a list of all possible GOOS and GOARCH combinations with:

go tool dist list

(or for easier machine consumption go tool dist list -json)
