A module is a collection of related Go packages that are versioned together as a single unit.
Modules record precise dependency requirements and create reproducible builds.
A module is defined by a tree of Go source files with a go.mod file in the tree’s root directory. Module source code may be located outside of GOPATH. There are four directives: module, require, replace, exclude.

How to Use Modules
- How to Install and Activate Module Support
- Install the latest Go 1.11 release.
Once installed, you can then activate module support in one of two ways:
Invoke the go command in a directory outside of the $GOPATH/src tree, with a valid go.mod file in the current directory or any parent of it and the environment variable GO111MODULE unset (or explicitly set to auto). Invoke the go command with GO111MODULE=on environment variable set.
