moovweb/gvm vs. gvmtool/gvm

brad
Hi all ~

Wanting to install gvm, but not sure what the difference is between moovweb's version and yours.  moovweb seems to have had commits about as recently as gvmtool's version.

Which should I install?  I'm only installing it to grab Go, so I can install Spiff, so whichever makes that easiest.  I was surprised to not find a 'brew install gvm' recipe for homebrew, but I suppose that's similar to how rvm works, so not too surprising.

Links:
Learned about moovweb/gvm from Barry Williams here: https://groups.google.com/a/cloudfoundry.org/forum/#!topic/bosh-users/r9huiGKQCVY

https://github.com/moovweb/gvm
-and-
https://github.com/gvmtool/gvm (of course!)

So I can do either: bash < <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/moovweb/gvm/master/binscripts/gvm-installer)
-OR-
I can do: curl -s api.gvmtool.net | bash

Thanks for any advice.

Cheers
~ Brad

Hi Brad,

I presume you are referring to a fork that someone made of the code on GitHub?

GVM is not installed from source code on GitHub, but from a service that runs on Heroku. The source code that you're probably looking at is the code that powers our web service. Remember that GVM is as much a web service API as what it is client side bash.

In short, simply open a console and type:
$ curl -s get.gvmtool.net | bash

If all goes well, you should now have GVM installed.

Cheers,
Marco.

Yes, I was.  Hoping that someone knew something about moovweb's fork and could comment.  Not sure if their fork was to fix an issue related to getting Go and Spiff installed or not.

If anyone knows and can chime in, that'd be great.  Otherwise, I'll just proceed with the standard install using get.gvmtool.net and if I run into issues, just implode that version and try moovweb's fork at that point.

Thanks Marco!

Many forks of GVM exist on github. Nothing specific to candidates (like Groovy, Go or Spiff) exists in the source code. The application backing the API is agnostic of anything it hosts. All such data is held in an underlying database.

Also worthy mentioning that gvm does not, and will never host go or spiff. I might spin up another instance of the server to serve this community specifically, but it won't be know as gvm. Unless someone else has beat me to it already ;-)

Cheers,
Marco.
