name: GolangCI Lint
image: golangci/golangci-lint:latest
- golangci-lint run -v --out-format json > lint-report.json
path: lint-report.json
type: text/json
format: golangci

We highly encourage everyone to try Cirrus CI. It’s free for public repositories and all organizations get 200 CPU hours worth of compute credits to try it on private repositories.

As always don’t hesitate to ping support or ask any questions on Twitter.
