devel/go-homedir - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Go library for home directory information

This is a Go library for detecting the user's home directory without the use of
cgo, so the library can be used in cross-compilation environments.

Usage is incredibly simple, just call homedir.Dir() to get the home directory
for a user, and homedir.Expand() to expand the ~ in a path to the home

Why not just use os/user? The built-in os/user package requires cgo on Darwin
systems. This means that any Go code that uses that package cannot cross
compile. But 99% of the time the use for os/user is just to retrieve the home
directory, which we can do for the current user without cgo. This library does
that, enabling cross-compilation.
