Developing using Docker

In order to develop inside a Docker container you must mount your local copy of the Kops repo into the container's GOPATH. For the official Golang Docker image this is simply a matter of running the following command:

docker run -it -v /path/to/local/kops/repo:/go/src/ golang bash

You should now be able to test if everything is working by building the project using make kops or running the tests with make test. In order to simulate the tests ran on the CI server then use the target make ci.
