Hacking on Doozer

If you want to hack on doozer, we suggest discussing your plans on the mailing list to avoid duplicating effort. But if not, that's cool too. Just have fun.

Here are some instructions for building doozer from source:

Installing Go

I recommend not using apt, homebrew, or any other packaging system to install Go. It's better to install straight from the official Go packages. Easy-to-follow instructions are at

Installing Dependencies

If you want to change .proto files, you need to nstall the protoc command (from

$ sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
$ brew install protobuf

If you want to run doozer's tests, install

Building Doozer

(make sure you have set $GOPATH)
$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone
$ cd doozerd
$ ./

This will build the rest of the dependencies and all doozer packages and commands, and copy the commands into $GOPATH/bin. You can test individual doozer components by running go test in that sub-package directory.

Try It Out

$ doozerd >/dev/null 2>&1 &
$ open http://localhost:8080/

This will start up one doozer process and show a web view of its contents.
