Prisma Client Go needs to generate code to work. This means that you need to run the generator before you can use it. We recommend to use Go's built-in go generate (opens in a new tab) to run the generator.

Set up go generate

While this step is not required, we recommend to use go generate (opens in a new tab) to simplify generating the Prisma Client Go client. To do so, you can just put the following line into a go file, and then run go generate so go run generate and any other generate commands you run will get executed.

Put this line into a Go file in your project, usually in main.go:

//go:generate go run generate
func main() {
// ...

Now, run go generate:

go generate ./...

Your Prisma Client Go code is now generated.
