Explanations for all options


This option sets which checks should be enabled. By default, most checks will be enabled, except for those that are too opinionated or that only apply to packages in certain domains.

All supported checks can be enabled with "all". Subsets of checks can be enabled via prefixes and the * glob; for example, "S*", "SA*" and "SA1*" will enable all checks in the S, SA and SA1 subgroups respectively. Individual checks can be enabled by their full IDs. To disable checks, prefix them with a minus sign. This works on all of the previously mentioned values.

Default value: ["all", "-ST1000", "-ST1003", "-ST1016", "-ST1020", "-ST1021", "-ST1022"]


ST1003 checks, among other things, for the correct capitalization of initialisms. The set of known initialisms can be configured with this option.

Default value: ["ACL", "API", "ASCII", "CPU", "CSS", "DNS", "EOF", "GUID", "HTML", "HTTP", "HTTPS", "ID", "IP", "JSON", "QPS", "RAM", "RPC", "SLA", "SMTP", "SQL", "SSH", "TCP", "TLS", "TTL", "UDP", "UI", "GID", "UID", "UUID", "URI", "URL", "UTF8", "VM", "XML", "XMPP", "XSRF", "XSS", "SIP", "RTP", "AMQP", "DB", "TS"]


By default, ST1001 forbids all uses of dot imports in non-test packages. This setting allows setting a whitelist of import paths that can be dot-imported anywhere.

Default value: []


ST1013 recommends using constants from the net/http package instead of hard-coding numeric HTTP status codes. This setting specifies a list of numeric status codes that this check does not complain about.

Default value: ["200", "400", "404", "500"]
