Re: Vagrant box CI/CD



Oh actually, that link was for compiling with go- which is correct.
go get github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/compute-image-tools/cli_tools/daisy

If you wanted to look at the source tree in github, just look at the project root:
https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/compute-image-tools

Great thanks.

I got that link from "build from source" here:
https://googlecloudplatform.github.io/compute-image-tools/daisy-installation-usage.html

That's what threw me off.
