Google Cloud SDK
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Google Cloud Platform (GCP) has a command line tool to do admin stuf, Gcloud. GCP is the third largest cloud provider in the world and the tool is required to do a large number of things (including one I was just trying to do and had to switch computers because of). For what it's worth, when I tried to install it on my own from the tarball the installer didn't do the symlink right. Let me know if you need any other info, thanks!

This is Apache-2.0 so I'll allow it, though to be specific I am renaming this task since it is actually for the Cloud SDK

If this is still up for grabs I would like to maintain it.
I already have a working package but i'm still testing it.
Unfortunate fact is there is no source code (it is not open source) and Google is only distributing pre-built static binaries.

Until packaging this i was using that pre-built tarball for few years extracting it in /usr/local and setting all the environment variables manually for my session.
For end users it is much nicer to have it in repo and have it updating with rest of the packages than needing to install it manually (like i did until now) and update it regularly manually also.
