How to Get It
The 'go' Command
The easiest way to get your giddy hands on this goodness is by using the go command at the terminal.

You can then import the SDK packages in your Go project. (See the examples below.)
Download the Source Code
You can download the source code from the Smarty Go SDK repository on Github.
