togo converts files to Go source code as a byte array. togo is based on (but is a complete rewrite of) Franco Lazzarino's togo.


togo is designed to be embedded in your Go project for a dependency free way to manage assets.

First, copy main.go from togo into a subdirectory in your project (for example, a subdirectory named togo.)

Next, add comments to indicate to go generate that you wish to run your local copy of togo to build assets.

//go:generate go run ./togo -n Favicon_ico -i assets/favicon.ico -p static -o static/favicon_ico.go

togo takes some basic arguments:

Argument Description
-p generated package name
-n generated variable name
-i input file name
-o output file name
