Custom Build Steps on GolangCI.com
One of our customers requested custom build commands to perform a code generation before analysis. We’ve implemented it and today we’ve released it to all customers.
How to Configure
We’ve made the wiki page with the description of configuration directives.
The example of configuration:
- apt-get update && apt-get install -y libsecret-1-dev
What Can Be Configured
- custom build steps
- vanity import path for the project
- golangci-lint version
Why it’s Important
After we’ve migrated to go/packages in golangci-lint we can’t analyze a repository if we can’t fetch some dependencies or we miss some autogenerated code. Custom build steps allow proper fetching of dependencies, code generation etc.
We try to autodetect vanity import paths but it’s not always possible. Now you can configure it.
Setting fixed golangci-lint version is useful for consistent results with your CI.
