When attempting to test your Go Modules repository you may encounter the following error:
Could not detect supported target files in /Users/SnykUser/Documents/Snyk/reponame.
Please see our documentation for supported languages and target files: https://support.snyk.io/hc/en-us/articles/360000911957-Language-support and make sure you are in the right directory.
This is generally because you do not have a
Go.mod file present in this repo.
You can read more about our Go package manager support page.
Creating a Go.mod
If your project is already in version control, you can simply run
go mod init
Or you can supply module path manually. It’s kinda like a name, URL and import path for your package:
go mod init github.com/your/repo
This command will create go.mod file which both defines projects requirements and locks dependencies to their correct versions
