gpm v1.1.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2014-03-07 // about 7 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ”Œ TL;DR: gpm has plugins now, plugins are cool. :)

    ๐Ÿ‘€ As can be seen in my ramblings on this pull request there always are certain features which I want to add to gpm but which are not a good tradeoff in regards to functionality/complexity, or do not strictly fall into gpm's responsibility.

    ๐Ÿ”Œ That will stop being a problem from now on by introducing gpm plugins , their way they work is pretty simple: if you give an unknown command to gpm it will look for an executable called gpm-<command> in your path and execute that if present, passing along all arguments. The change is introduced in this commit (it's a one liner, I love it) and was suggested by @foca, @inkel and @soveran, to whom I extend my thanks _.

    ๐Ÿš€ The first released plugin is gpm-bootstrap which takes a look at your Go project, installs all required dependencies setting them to their last release or revision and saves the versions to a Godeps file. Versioning the dependencies of your Go projects has never been easier.

    ๐Ÿ‘€ You can see the plugin at work in this example:

    gpm-boostrap

    ๐Ÿ‘€ Looking forward to seeing new plugins pop up! ๐Ÿ“ฆ ๐ŸŽ†
