I’m trying to build a rather complex Go program that requires multiple steps before it’s built.
One of the steps is to install a Go command and run it. In bash, it’s literally a two-liner.
go get -u -v github.com/GeertJohan/go.rice/rice
How can I achieve that during the build process of a Snap?
You can use the
override-build section in your part. This lets you add additional commands to the default build process for your part.
The simplest no change
override-build section is:
This is replacing the build step of the part with a request for Snapcraft to run the default build step. If you place some additional commands before
snapcraftctl build, then they will be run before the default build commands.
