A configuration file named
gopack.config tells gopack about your dependencies and which version should be included. You can point to a tag, a branch, or, if you are being naughty, master. The programming community would thank you not to carry out such a travesty as it leaves your code open to breaking changes. Much better to point at immutable code.
[deps.memcache] import = "github.com/bradfitz/gomemcache/memcache" tag = "1.2" [deps.mux] import = "github.com/gorilla/mux" branch = "1.0rc2" [deps.toml] import = "github.com/pelletier/go-toml" commit = "23d36c08ab90f4957ae8e7d781907c368f5454dd"
Inside the configuration file you can also specify your project's repository name and it will be linked before pulling dependencies. For instance, let's say you have a reference to a subdirectory from your own project like this:
You can declare it's repository name and it won't be pulled from the remote repo:
repo = "github.com/login/repo" # Put other dependencies here.
Then simply run, install, and test your code much as you would have with the
go command. Just replace
gp run *.go
gp command will make sure your dependencies are downloaded, their respective git repos are pointed at the appropriate tag or branch, and your code is compiled against the desired library versions. Project dependencies are stored locally in the
First checkout and build from source
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:d2fn/gopack.git cd gopack go get github.com/pelletier/go-toml && go build -o gp
Then copy the
gopack binary to your project directory and invoke just as you would
go. Make sure the current directory is on your path or place the
gp binary elsewhere on your path.
cp gp ~/projects/mygoproject cd ~/projects/myproject gp run *.go
Sources and Scms
goget to download packages by default, but when you need more control over downloads you can be more specific about the source and the type of scm.
For example, if you want to download the source using git via ssh, you can provide the ssh url and specify
git as a scm:
[deps.mux] import = "github.com/gorilla/mux" source = "email@example.com:gorilla/mux.git" scm = "git"
You can do the same with Mercurial,
hg, and Subversion,
Gopack includes a few tools to help you track your project dependencies.
./gp dependencytreeshows the complete list of external dependencies in your project.
./gp statsshows statistics about dependency imports.
./gp installdepsinstalls the project dependencies using
go install ....
