Getting go set up locally - mac

So I've been messing around with go and installing some libraries. The go documentation is a good start but if you want to be productive with libraries, there's a few additional steps. Everything here assumes you're on a mac.

Step 1: Install Go and set up your workspace. However you do need to create a GOROOT directory.
mkdir -p goroot/bin
mkdir -p goroot/pkg
mkdir -p goroot/src
Step 2: Set GOROOT both for the command line and for launched applications.
export GOPATH=/Users/alek/projects/goprojects
launchctl setenv GOPATH $GOPATH
Step 3: Install source control (and python) -- this will be required for go get <library>
python: https://www.python.org/downloads/
git: http://git-scm.com/download/mac
hg: https://mercurial.selenic.com/downloads
bzr: http://wiki.bazaar.canonical.com/Download and fix bazaar
Step 4: Install an IDE (optional!)

I've found and really like Atom. See https://atom.io/ and install go-plus afterwards.
