Setup your Minio Github Repository

Fork Minio upstream source repository to your own personal repository. Copy the URL for minio from your personal github repo (you will need it for the git clone command below).

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/minio
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/minio
$ git clone <paste saved URL for personal forked minio repo>
$ cd minio

Compiling Minio from source

Minio uses Makefile to wrap around some of redundant checks done through command line.

$ make
