Use "gb vendor help [topic]" for more information about that topic.

Fetch a remote dependency

Usage:

gb vendor fetch [-branch branch | -revision rev | -tag tag] [-precaire] [-no-recurse] importpath

fetch vendors an upstream import path.

The import path may include a url scheme. This may be useful when fetching dependencies from private repositories that cannot be probed.

Flags:

-branch branch
	fetch from the name branch. If not supplied the default upstream
	branch will be used.
-no-recurse
	do not fetch recursively.
-tag tag
	fetch the specified tag. If not supplied the default upstream
	branch will be used.
-revision rev
	fetch the specific revision from the branch (if supplied). If no
	revision supplied, the latest available will be supplied.
-precaire
	allow the use of insecure protocols.

Update a local dependency

Usage:

gb vendor update [-all] import

gb vendor update will replaces the source with the latest available from the head of the master branch.

Updating from one copy of a dependency to another comes with several restrictions. The first is you can only update to the head of the branch your dependency was vendered from, switching branches is not supported. The second restriction is if you have used -tag or -revision while vendoring a dependency, your dependency is "headless" (to borrow a term from git) and cannot be updated.

To update across branches, or from one tag/revision to another, you must first use gb vendor delete to remove the dependency, then gb vendor fetch [-tag | -revision | -branch ] [-precaire] to replace it.

Flags:

-all
	will update all dependencies in the manifest, otherwise only the dependency supplied.
-precaire
	allow the use of insecure protocols.

Lists dependencies, one per line

Usage:

gb vendor list [-f format]

gb vendor list formats lists the contents of the manifest file.

The output

Flags:

-f
	controls the template used for printing each manifest entry. If not supplied
	the default value is "{{.Importpath}}\t{{.Repository}}{{.Path}}\t{{.Branch}}\t{{.Revision}}"

Deletes a local dependency

Usage:

gb vendor delete [-all] importpath

delete removes a dependency from $PROJECT/vendor/src and the vendor manifest

Flags:

-all
	remove all dependencies

Purges all unreferenced dependencies

Usage:

gb vendor purge

gb vendor purge will remove all unreferenced dependencies

Restore dependencies from the manifest

Usage:

gb vendor restore [-precaire]

Restore vendor dependencies.

Flags:

-precaire
	allow the use of insecure protocols.
