Tools and libraries for cloning (not syncing) Who's on First data to your local machine.
This is still very much a work in progress so you might want to wait before using it. For the adventurous...
Install Go. There are package installers for Mac and Windows, and build from source options.
TIP: On Mac, verify your bash profile includes:
Next clone this repo (assuming you haven't already done that :-)
$> git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:whosonfirst/go-whosonfirst-clone.git
The easiest way to install all the dependencies and compile all of the code and command line tools is to use the handy Makefile that is included with this repository, like this:
$> cd go-whosonfirst-clone $> make deps $> make bin
In addition to fetching all the necessary dependencies this will clone the
go-whosonfirst-clone packages in to the
src directory (along with all the dependencies) which is a thing you need to do because of the way Go expects code to organized. It's kind of weird and annoying but also shouting-at-the-sky territory so the Makefile is designed to hide the bother from you.
If you don't have
make installed on your computer or just want to do things by hand then you should spend some time reading the Makefile itself. The revelant "targets" (which are the equivalent of commands in Makefile-speak) that you will need are
deps for fetching dependencies,
self for cloning files and
bin for building the command line tools.
