Skia-Buildbot Repository

This repo contains infrastructure code for Skia.

Getting the Source Code

The main source code repository is a Git repository hosted at It is possible to check out this repository directly with git clone or via go get.

Using git clone allows you to work in whatever directory you want. You will still need to set GOPATH in order to build some apps (recommended to put this in a cache dir). E.g.:

$ cd ${WORKDIR}
$ git clone
$ export GOPATH=${HOME}/.cache/gopath/$(basename ${WORKDIR})
$ mkdir $GOPATH
$ cd buildbot

Using go get will fetch the repository into your GOPATH directory along with all the Go dependencies. You will need to set GOPATH and GO111MODULE=on. E.g.:

$ export GOPATH=${WORKDIR}
$ export GO111MODULE=on
$ go get -u -t
$ cd ${GOPATH}/src/

Note: is a custom import path and will only work if used like the examples here.

Install other dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install python-django
$ go get -u \ \

Build ~everything:

$ make all
