nancy is a tool to check for vulnerabilities in your Golang dependencies, powered by Sonatype OSS Index.
nancy, assuming you have a built version of it:
nancy currently works for projects that use
go mod for dependencies.
You can see an example of using
nancy in Travis-CI at this intentionally vulnerable repo we made.
A portion of the golang ecosystem doesn't use proper versions, and instead uses a commit hash to resolve your dependency. Dependencies like this will not work with
nancy quite yet, as we don't have a mechanism on OSS Index to lookup vulnerabilities in that manner.
Nancy Drew was the first female detective used extensively in literature, and gave women across the world a new hero.
This project is called
nancy as like the great detective herself, it looks for problems you might not be aware of, and gives you the information to help put them to an end!
At current time you have a few options:
- Build from source
- Download release binary from here on GitHub
Build from source
go get -u github.com/sonatype-nexus-community/nancy
- Nancy should now be available wherever your GOPATH is set
dep ensurein the root of the project
- In the root of the project
go test ./...
- If tests checkout go ahead and run
- Use that binary where ever your heart so desires!
For the adventurous, we have
go.mod files that enable you to build using go modules.
$ export GO111MODULE=on $ go test ./... $ go build
Download release binary
Each commit to master creates a new release binary, and if you'd like to skip building from source, you can download a binary similar to:
curl https://github.com/sonatype-nexus-community/nancy/releases/download/0.0.4/nancy-linux.amd64-0.0.4 > /path/where/you/want/nancy
nancy is written using Golang 1.11, so it is best you start there.
This project also uses
dep for dependencies, so you will need to download
Tests can be run like
go test ./... -v
We care a lot about making the world a safer place, and that's why we created
nancy. If you as well want to
speed up the pace of software development by working on this project, jump on in! Before you start work, create
a new issue, or comment on an existing issue, to let others know you are!
nancy logo was created using a combo of Gopherize.me and good ole Photoshop. Thanks to the creators of
Gopherize for an easy way to make a fun Gopher :)
