go-install-as

go install a package under a specific import path

Installation

$ make

Why

When building code for production you often want to have finer grain control over dependencies.

This tool allows you to go install packages, regardless of their source (private, etc.), into whatever import path you specify.

Example

We have a private-repository on github, say github.com/bitly/go-simplejson and we want the import path to be bitly/simplejson for our Go client applications...

$ git clone git@github.com:bitly/go-simplejson.git
$ cd go-simplejson
$ go tool install_as --import-as=bitly/simplejson
