(README.md) # go-homedir This is a Go library for detecting the user's home directory without the use of cgo, so the library can be used in cross-compilation environments. Usage is incredibly simple, just call `homedir.Dir()` to get the home directory for a user, and `homedir.Expand()` to expand the `~` in a path to the home directory. **Why not just use `os/user`?** The built-in `os/user` package requires cgo on Darwin systems. This means that any Go code that uses that package cannot cross compile. But 99% of the time the use for `os/user` is just to retrieve the home directory, which we can do for the current user without cgo. This library does that, enabling cross-compilation.
