Installing Kops via Hombrew ¶
Homebrew makes installing kops very simple for MacOS.
brew update && brew install kops
Master can also be installed via Homebrew very easily:
# HEAD of master brew update && brew install kops --HEAD
Previously we could also ship development updates to homebrew but their policy has changed.
Note: if you already have kops installed, you need to substitute
You can switch between installed releases with:
brew switch kops 1.17.0 brew switch kops 1.18.0
Releasing kops to Brew ¶
Submitting a new release of kops to Homebrew is very simple.
From a homebrew machine ¶
brew bump-formula-pr makes it easy to update our homebrew formula.
This will automatically update the provided fields and open a PR for you.
More details on this script are located here.
brew bump-formula-pr kops \ --url=https://github.com/kubernetes/kops/archive/1.7.1.tar.gz \ --sha256=044c5c7a737ed3acf53517e64bb27d3da8f7517d2914df89efeeaf84bc8a722a
- Update the URL variable to the tar.gz of the new release source code
- Update the sha256 variable to SHA256 checksum of the new tar.gz
If we change how dependencies work or if we make the install require something other than a simple make, we'll need to update the commands
brew edit kops will open an editor on your machine to edit the formula.
You can use this to make more in depth changes to the formula.
Test that Homebrew formula works ¶
brew uninstall kops && brew install kops will install the new version.
Test and make sure that the new release works.
Audit the Homebrew formula ¶
brew audit --strict --online will output any code that doesn't meet the Homebrew standards.
Send a commit to the Homebrew repo ¶
Rather than repeating documentation that might change, head over to Homebrew documentation for directions and conventions.
The formula can be found in hacks/brew/kops.rb.
