Creating a Feature Repository
A feature repository stores feature and feature-related definitions.
Feature repositories typically use Git to allow for DevOps best practices, such as continuous integration.
Typically, you will want to create a workspace or select an existing one, prior to creating a feature repository. While creating an associated workspace is not required prior to creating a feature repository, an associated workspace is required to apply changes to a feature repository.
Prior to creating a new feature repository, follow these steps:
- Install the Tecton CLI, if it is not already installed.
- Authenticate to your account, using
Creating a new feature repository
To initialize a new feature repository, create a directory where the repository
will be stored, which can be anywhere within your git source tree. Then, run
tecton init in this directory:
$ tecton init
Feature repository root set to /Users/alice/src/my_feature_repository
When using a previously created Tecton feature repository, you do not need to
tecton init. Instead, clone the repository via Git or otherwise.
