I found the answer, see below!

Since go does not have a preprocessor allowing conditional code paths this is
how it should be done (and as I did):

We should aim to develop and build our Go applications by following Go idioms.
If the source file targets a specific platform, we should choose file suffix
approach. Otherwise, if the source file is applicable for multiple platforms and
we want to exclude a specific feature or platform, we should use build
constraints instead.

Build constraints
A build constraints (known as build tags) is an optional top line comment that
starts with

// +build

package api

File suffixes
The second option for conditional compilation is the name of the
source file itself. This approach is simpler than build tags, and allows
the Go build system to exclude files without having to process the file.

We should add one of the following suffixes to desired files:

*_GOOS // operation system
*_GOARCH // platform architecture
*_GOOS_GOARCH // both combined
