You cannot statically prevent someone from willfully assigning to a variable of accessible type (eg. a function call parameter). If you're just after sanity check there are many ways. At runtime you can eg. use a map: https://play.golang.org/p/5rwJLFpU3a4 For compile time - you can use stringer tool to generate numerical constants mapped to strings. hope this helps, -- Wojciech S.
