i'm trying to set a variable from my unit tests file


var testingMode bool = true


if testingMode == true {
  //use test database
} else {
  //use regular database

If I run "go test", this works fine. If I do "go build", golang complains that testingMode is not defined (which should be the case since tests aren't part of the program).

But it seems if I set the global variable in main.go, I'm unable to set it in main_test.

What's the correct way to about this?

    Try this:

    Define your variable as global in main.go:

    var testingMode bool

    And then set it to be true in your test file main_test.go:

    func init() {
        testingMode = true

    Pierre Prinetti's Answer doesn't work in 2019.

    Instead, do this. It's less then ideal, but gets the job done

    //In the module that you are testing (not your test module:
    func init() {
        if len(os.Args) > 1 && os.Args[1][:5] == "-test" {
            log.Println("testing")//special test setup goes goes here
            return // ...or just skip the setup entirely
