Install from Source

To install Ops, you will first need to install prerequisites.

Install from Source

Getting the Source Code

To get the source code, clone it from the official github repo, which can be found here

$ git clone $GOPATH/src/

Once you've clone the repo, cd into the ops directory.

$ cd $GOPATH/src/

Installing dependencies

Use the make command to install the various dependencies of Ops.

$ make deps

Build the Executable

To compile the source code into an executable, use the make command.

First you need to generate some go code from Protocol Buffers included in ops source repository. If you don't have the needed tools, you can install them by issuing the following commands:

$ go install
$ go install
$ go install

Once ready you can generate the necessary code by using:

$ make generate

Finally you can build the ops binary by using:

$ make build

Build the Executable including specified providers only

By default, when running make build, all providers are included and available.

However you can select a subset of provider(s) to be included if required (except onprem that is always built).

  • the following command builds only onprem and all other providers are disabled.

$ go build -tags onlyprovider
  • the following command builds only aws and all other providers are disabled (except onprem that is always built).

$ go build -tags onlyprovider,aws

To select the providers to build you need to always use onlyprovider tag accompanied with desired provider tags:

$ go build -tags onlyprovider,aws,azure,do,gcp,ibm,linode,upcloud,vultr

available tags:

  • onlyprovider

    • aws

    • azure

    • digitalocean (or do)

    • gcp

    • hyperv

    • ibm

    • linode

    • oci

    • openshift

    • openstack

    • proxmox

    • upcloud

    • vbox

    • vsphere

    • vultr
