The gomote command is a client for the Go builder infrastructure. It's a remote control for remote Go builder machines.
gomote [global-flags] cmd [cmd-flags] For example, $ gomote create openbsd-amd64-60 user-username-openbsd-amd64-60-0 $ gomote push user-username-openbsd-amd64-60-0 $ gomote run user-username-openbsd-amd64-60-0 go/src/make.bash $ gomote run user-username-openbsd-amd64-60-0 go/bin/go test -v -short os
To list the subcommands, run "gomote" without arguments:
Commands: create create a buildlet; with no args, list types of buildlets destroy destroy a buildlet gettar extract a tar.gz from a buildlet list list active buildlets ls list the contents of a directory on a buildlet ping test whether a buildlet is alive and reachable push sync your GOROOT directory to the buildlet put put files on a buildlet put14 put Go 1.4 in place puttar extract a tar.gz to a buildlet rm delete files or directories rdp RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) to a Windows buildlet run run a command on a buildlet ssh ssh to a buildlet
To list all the builder types available, run "create" with no arguments:
$ gomote create (list tons of buildlet types)
The "gomote run" command has many of its own flags:
$ gomote run -h run usage: gomote run [run-opts] <instance> <cmd> [args...] -builderenv string Optional alternate builder to act like. Must share the same underlying buildlet host type, or it's an error. For instance, linux-amd64-race or linux-386-387 are compatible with linux-amd64, but openbsd-amd64 and openbsd-386 are different hosts. -debug write debug info about the command's execution before it begins -dir string Directory to run from. Defaults to the directory of the command, or the work directory if -system is true. -e value Environment variable KEY=value. The -e flag may be repeated multiple times to add multiple things to the environment. -path string Comma-separated list of ExecOpts.Path elements. The special string 'EMPTY' means to run without any $PATH. The empty string (default) does not modify the $PATH. Otherwise, the following expansions apply: the string '$PATH' expands to the current PATH element(s), the substring '$WORKDIR' expands to the buildlet's temp workdir. -system run inside the system, and not inside the workdir; this is implicit if cmd starts with '/'
Debugging buildlets directly ¶
Using "gomote create" contacts the build coordinator (farmer.golang.org) and requests that it create the buildlet on your behalf. All subsequent commands (such as "gomote run" or "gomote ls") then proxy your request via the coordinator. To access a buildlet directly (for example, when working on the buildlet code), you can skip the "gomote create" step and use the special builder name "<build-config-name>@ip[:port>", such as "firstname.lastname@example.org".
