Adding a New Dependency

Minikube uses Godep to manage vendored dependencies. Godep can be a bit finnicky with a project with this many dependencies. Here is a rough set of steps that usually works to add a new dependency.

  1. Make a clean GOPATH, with minikube in it. This isn't strictly necessary, but it usually helps.
mkdir -p $HOME/newgopath/src/
export GOPATH=$HOME/newgopath
cd $HOME/newgopath/src/
git clone
cd minikube
  1. Install the package versions specified in Godeps/Godeps.json
godep restore ./...

NOTE: If you encounter a HTTP 301 error, you may need to set the following: git config --global http. true

  1. go get your new dependency.
go get mynewdepenency
  1. Use it in code, build and test.

  2. Import the dependency from GOPATH into vendor/

godep save ./...

NOTE: godep seems to have an issue with not recovering files in vendor/ IF you plan on committing your updated dependencies, make sure not to remove these files in your commit

If it is a large dependency, please commit the vendor/ directory changes separately. This makes review easier in GitHub.

NOTE: We have recently added a deprecation message regarding boot2docker. Make sure that this deprecation message ends up in the vendored code at /vendor/

git add vendor/
git commit -m "Adding dependency foo"
git add --all
git commit -m "Adding cool feature"
