Dear customers of GolangCI.com,

I’m sorry to say that: we are closing the GolangCI.com service on 15-th of April, 2020.

Why?

  1. The service didn’t met my financial expectations: it always was near 0 profitability.
  2. It takes a lot of time to bring excellent service to customers: communication, continuous updates, new features, etc. But I couldn’t allocate needed time for that because of primary job. I couldn’t hire a team because of financial reasons. I wouldn’t like to provide mediocre service to my customers.

What if I paid for the next month?

I will cancel all paid subscriptions, so there won’t be upcoming charges. The service will continue working for all paid customers until closing of service.

What to use instead?

As a replacement you can try to use self-hosted solutions like Reviewdog or SaaS services like CodeClimate. They typically allow to use golangci-lint.

What about source code of golangci.com?

It was the open-source project. It’s API and worker code is here, web code is here. You can run it yourself. If you would like to get help with that you can contact me on my personal email.

What about golangci-lint?

Don’t worry: it’s not closing and it’s not going to close.

Golangci-lint is the open-source and popular product. I’m not the sole maintainer of it: we have a team of a few maintainers and a dozens of contributors (thanks for all of you).

I’ll be happy if you will continue using golangci-lint.

Final thoughts

I’m happy that I’ve launched this project: I hope the service was helpful for you, and I learned a lot of things.

Thank you very much for using us.
