I'm a bit confused as to why the initial step is a "git clone". Why not "go get"?

I agree. I thought it would be a blank project skeleton you are supposed to clone, but it’s not. So `go get` would make much more sense on the landing page.

Great point! I've updated the instruction.

Looking better, but since the 'go get' step compiles your main.go and puts it in $GOPATH/bin/go-bootstrap, the instructions could be simpler still:

    go get github.com/go-bootstrap/go-bootstrap
    $GOPATH/bin/go-bootstrap -dir github.com/$GIT_USER/$PROJECT_NAME
    cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/$GIT_USER/$PROJECT_NAME && go run main.go
