gpm v1.1.1 Release Notes

Release Date: 2014-03-08 // over 7 years ago
  • 🔌 TL;DR: gpm has plugins now, plugins are cool. :)

    👀 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.

    🔌 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 was suggested by @foca, @inkel and @soveran to whom I extend my thanks _.

    🚀 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.

    📚 You can read more about plugins in the documentation.

    For homebrew users:

    🔌 I will keep up-to-date homebrew formulae for all plugins I'm aware of in this repository.

    You can access this formulae with the following command:

    $ brew tap pote/gpm\_plugins

    📦 After this you can just install them as you would any other package

    $ brew install gpm-bootstrap

    🔌 Plugin Example: gpm bootstrap


    👀 Looking forward to seeing new plugins pop up! 📦 🎆
