make help for command line usage.
First off you will need to have a working Golang-1.8 development environment. To get this you can follow this tutorial.
Make sure you can use the
go command and that your
GOPATH environment variable is set.
As a alternative you can have a look at the Docker build script, you wont need
go locally for this, but you will need
GOPATH in your bash profile:
$ export GOPATH=/Users/<your user>/go $ export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$PATH
You can add these two lines to
~/.bash_profile to make sure these variables are always set.
If you have this you should be able to run the following command:
$ go get github.com/kubicorn/kubicorn
Now you can run
make from the
src directory of
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/kubicorn/kubicorn/ $ make
kubicorn binary will get built and placed under
$GOPATH/src/github.com/kubicorn/kubicorn/bin. You can also run
make all to also get the binary under
Now you can run
kubicorn to check if everything is working:
Other branches or your fork
If you want to build a different git branch just switch inside the
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/kubicorn/kubicorn/ $ git checkout digitalocean2 $ make
You can also fork the
kubicorn repository and make your own changes, check this link out on how to do this.
If you have your own fork you want to build you can just do a
go get to your own repository instead of the main repository:
$ go get github.com/YOU_GITHUB_ACCOUNT/kubicorn $ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/YOU_GITHUB_ACCOUNT/kubicorn/ $ make
Keep in mind that other branches might have different dependencies that will need to present in you
As a simple alternative there is a script located in the Docker folder name “build.sh”. This can be used to build Kubicorn without the need to setup a golang environment on your local machine. You will need to have Docker installed on your development environment. This script should work on any platform that supports Docker. Have a look at the official Docker documentation on how to install Docker for your platform of choice.
To use this script just make a git checkout of the
kubicorn repository and run the build.sh:
$ git clone https://github.com/kubicorn/kubicorn.git $ cd kubicorn/docker $ ./build.sh
