Keep your Go package dependencies fresh. Console tool for checking and updating package dependencies (imports).
GoFresh checks if there are any updates for imports in your package. It doesn't update packages, unless asked explicitly.
Just run go get:
go get github.com/divan/gofresh
Simply invoke gofresh inside a directory containing Go source files and it will tell you if you have any updates for your imports.
To check a package in your $GOPATH, you can specify the exact package by name:
By default, it shows first 3 commits, but you can expand commits list using -expand flag. See -help for more details.
$ gofresh -h gofresh [-options] gofresh [-options] [package(s)] Options: -dry-run Dry run -expand Expand list of commits -f Use force while updating packages -update Update all packages
Using -update flag you can update automatically all packages.
If you want to update them manually, use following flags to see the commands to invoke:
gofresh -update -dry-run
Typically, you simply invoke gofresh in your package dir to see what dependencies has been changed. Then you might want to see all new commits for the specific package and update it manually or update all automatically:
$ cd src/github.com/myusername/myproject/ $ gofresh $ gofresh -expand github.com/howeyc/fsnotify $ gofresh -update
Using with vendoring tools
If you use vendoring tool, such as Godep, your workflow doesn't change much:
- First, use gofresh to inspect updates and update if needed
- Second, run
godep saveor similar to update vendor dir from your GOPATH
- Commit update
- No support for Bazaar & SVN (how to check new commits on them?)
- Missing/failed repositories are not reported (no way to identify error from vcs.RepoRootForImportPath)
- Subpackages from the same repo will be checked all anyway (TODO: optimize)
- Go-Package-Store - displays updates for the Go packages in your GOPATH and shows with a nice Web UI.
