Installing the Golang tools with Vim

Go has a set of tools to help aid in go development such as a test coverage tool for go or go guru (a tool for answering questions about the go source code.

While in vim if you would like to install these tools just use the command:

:GoInstallBinaries

And likewise if you would like to update these tools use the command

:GoUpdateBinaries

These commands are provided by the vim-go vim plugin. The binaries are installed into your $GOPATH directory or if you'd like to override that dir set the g:go_bin_path vim variable.
