Why there is no vendor directory in kubernetes-ingress-controller?

I try to build kubernetes-ingress-controller0.2.1, I got errors like this:

> $ make build
> docker rmi -f kong-docker-kubernetes-ingress-controller.bintray.io/kong-ingress-controller-amd64:0.2.1 || true

I know this is because “/k8s.io/client-go” on my computer doesn’t match with kubernetes-ingress-controller, the question is which version should I use?

I have tried client-go v5.0.0~v9.0.0, all failed.

Hi @lijiaocn,

Could you try doing dep ensure -v -vendor-only?
make deps should do this for you.

Let me know if that doesn’t help.


You are right, there is a “deps” target in makefile, I should execute “make deps” before “make build”.

I build it successfully. Thank you very much !
