Seed gives you a zero-config way to deploy Serverless Go projects. We provide out-of-the-box support for the following ways to build your project:

  1. Using the Makefile
  2. Using the serverless-go-build plugin

Using the Makefile

Seed first checks if you have a Makefile in your project. If so, then it assumes that you have the right steps for building your project.

We have a simple starter repo with the Makefile example here.

Using the serverless-go-build Plugin

If a Makefile is not found, then Seed will look to see if you are using the serverless-go-build plugin. If you are, then it will run the following while building your project:

  • Install the dependencies using dep ensure. Where dep is the dependency manager for Go.
  • Run the serverless build.

If a Makefile is found in addition to the plugin, then Seed will run make before serverless build.

We also have a simple starter repo with the serverless-go-build example here.

Once the project has been built (with either of the two approaches), Seed continues the standard Serverless deployment process.
