Go Package Registry

Publish Go packages for your user or organization.

Publish a package

To publish a Go package perform a HTTP PUT operation with the package content in the request body. You cannot publish a package if a package of the same name and version already exists. You must delete the existing package first. The package must follow the documented structure.

PUT https://forgejo.example.com/api/packages/{owner}/go/upload
ownerThe owner of the package.

To authenticate to the package registry, you need to provide custom HTTP headers or use HTTP Basic authentication:

curl --user your_username:your_password_or_token \
     --upload-file path/to/file.zip \

If you are using 2FA or OAuth use a personal access token instead of the password.

The server responds with the following HTTP Status codes.

HTTP Status CodeMeaning
201 CreatedThe package has been published.
400 Bad RequestThe package is invalid.
409 ConflictA package with the same name exist already.

Install a package

To install a Go package instruct Go to use the package registry as proxy:

# use latest version
GOPROXY=https://forgejo.example.com/api/packages/{owner}/go go install {package_name}
# or
GOPROXY=https://forgejo.example.com/api/packages/{owner}/go go install {package_name}@latest
# use specific version
GOPROXY=https://forgejo.example.com/api/packages/{owner}/go go install {package_name}@{package_version}
ownerThe owner of the package.
package_nameThe package name.
package_versionThe package version.

If the owner of the packages is private you need to provide credentials.

More information about the GOPROXY environment variable and how to protect against data leaks can be found in the documentation.
