Older Go projects without module support need a specific workspace layout: the source code of your repository and its dependencies must be in the directories
$GOPATH. Using the
.gitpod.yml file, you can bring about such a workspace layout. Here is
how we do that for the example
... checkoutLocation: "go/src/github.com/demo-apps/go-gin-app" workspaceLocation: "." tasks: - command: | cd /workspace/go/src/github.com/demo-apps/go-gin-app go get -v ./... go build -o app ./app
In more detail:
- By default, Gitpod clones the repository into the directory
/workspace, which becomes the root directory for the workspace. With
workspaceLocationyou can change this behavior (the paths are taken relative to
- Gitpod preconfigures the
$GOPATHenvironment variable to include the directory
go get -v ./...we retrieve the sources of the dependencies from GitHub.
- To build the app, we run
go build -o app.
- Lastly, we start the application.
