ProblemGo works fine from the command window, but within IntelliJ you get a message about incorrect SDK version.
AssumptionYou installed Go using homebrew.
Go EnvironmentHere, we see that Go 1.3.1 is the current installed version:
$ go env GOARCH="amd64" GOBIN="" GOCHAR="6" GOEXE="" GOHOSTARCH="amd64" GOHOSTOS="darwin" GOOS="darwin" GOPATH="/Users/lex/dev/go/samples" GORACE="" GOROOT="/usr/local/Cellar/go/1.3.1/libexec" GOTOOLDIR="/usr/local/Cellar/go/1.3.1/libexec/pkg/tool/darwin_amd64" CC="clang" GOGCCFLAGS="-fPIC -m64 -pthread -fno-caret-diagnostics -Qunused-arguments -fmessage-length=0 -fno-common" CXX="clang++" CGO_ENABLED="1"
Fix IntelliJ ProblemThe go-lang-idea-plugin reported that it expected Go version 1.3, but got 1.3.1. So, just remove 1.3 (assuming that you don't need it) and create a symlink fro 1.3 to 1.3.1:
$ cd /usr/local/Cellar/go /usr/local/Cellar/go $ tdml . ├── 1.2.2 -> /usr/local/Cellar/go/1.3/ ├── 1.3 │ ├── bin │ ├── etc │ ├── libexec │ └── share └── 1.3.1 ├── bin ├── etc ├── libexec └── share 11 directories /usr/local/Cellar/go $ rm -rf 1.3 /usr/local/Cellar/go $ ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/go/1. 1.2.2 1.3.1/ /usr/local/Cellar/go $ ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/go/1.3.1 /usr/local/Cellar/go/1.3
DiscussionThis feels like such a hack, but I could not find a way to configure the version of the Go SDK for the go-lang-idea-plugin.
If anybody finds a better solution, please let us know. Thanks!
The Rest of the StoryI eventually found where to conigure the Go SDK in IntelliJ.
File > Folder Structure > Project Settings > Modules > Dependencies
Click the Module SDK dropdown and select the latest Go SDK (In my case it is currently Go SDK go1.3.3 darwin/adm64)
If that is not an option, you may need to click the New... button and select the path that is $GOPATH.
Also, verify that you selected the correct Go SDK in File > Project Structure > Project Settings > Project
