Create directory in Go

In this short tutorial, we will learn how to create directory in platform independent manner. I.e we don't worry about the \ and / part for *nix and Windows machines.


 package main

 import (

 func main() {
 // create a TestDir directory on current working directory
 os.Mkdir("." + string(filepath.Separator) + "TestDir",0777)

The 0777 permission can be to liberal for some cases and you might want to change it for your production code.
