Apache Beam Go SDK Quickstart
If you’re interested in contributing to the Apache Beam Go codebase, see the Contribution Guide.
Set up your environment
The Beam SDK for Go requires
go version 1.10 or newer. It can be downloaded here. Check that you have version 1.10 by running:
$ go version
Get the SDK and the examples
The easiest way to obtain the Apache Beam Go SDK is via
$ go get -u github.com/apache/beam/sdks/go/...
For development of the Go SDK itself, see BUILD.md for details.
The Apache Beam examples directory has many examples. All examples can be run by passing the required arguments described in the examples.
For example, to run
$ go install github.com/apache/beam/sdks/go/examples/wordcount $ wordcount --input <PATH_TO_INPUT_FILE> --output counts
$ go install github.com/apache/beam/sdks/go/examples/wordcount # As part of the initial setup, for non linux users - install package unix before run $ go get -u golang.org/x/sys/unix $ wordcount --input gs://dataflow-samples/shakespeare/kinglear.txt \ --output gs://<your-gcs-bucket>/counts \ --runner dataflow \ --project your-gcp-project \ --temp_location gs://<your-gcs-bucket>/tmp/ \ --staging_location gs://<your-gcs-bucket>/binaries/ \ --worker_harness_container_image=apache-docker-beam-snapshots-docker.bintray.io/beam/go:20180515
