We use golang modules to manage golang dependencies. In order to add a new package dependency to the project, you can perform
go get <PACKAGE>@<VERSION> or edit the
go.mod file and append the package along with the version you want to use.
Makefile contains a rule called
revendor which performs
go mod vendor and
go mod tidy.
go mod vendor resets the main module’s vendor directory to include all packages needed to build and test all the main module’s packages. It does not include test code for vendored packages.
go mod tidy makes sure go.mod matches the source code in the module. It adds any missing modules necessary to build the current module’s packages and dependencies, and it removes unused modules that don’t provide any relevant packages.
$ make revendor
The dependencies are installed into the
vendor folder which should be added to the VCS.
⚠️ Make sure you test the code after you have updated the dependencies!
