Build From Source

If you don't want to download a pre-compiled version of goploader server you can build it from source. Otherwise you can directly download a pre-compiled binary here.

Prerequisites

  • A recent version Go installed on your machine
  • $GOPATH should be set to the appropriate directory
  • The dep tool must be installed : go get -u github.com/golang/dep/cmd/dep

Clone the repo

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/Depado/
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/Depado/
$ git clone https://github.com/Depado/goploader.git
$ cd goploader/
$ dep ensure

Build

Now all you have to do is build the project :

$ go build -o server github.com/Depado/goploader/server

That's it. Now head to the setup part to see how to generate or create the conf.yml file that is necessary for goploader to run.

Embedding resources in the binary

If you want to include all the assets used by goploader server inside the generated binary you'll have to install the rice tool.

$ go get github.com/GeertJohan/go.rice
$ go get github.com/GeertJohan/go.rice/rice

You can then generate a rice-box.go file by using this command :

$ rice embed-go -i=github.com/Depado/goploader/server
$ # Or by moving directly into the server dir
$ cd server && rice embed-go

This step must be executed before building the binary if you want embedded assets.
