depot_tools

Tools for working with Chromium development. It requires python 2.7.

Tools

The most important tools are:

  • fetch: A gclient wrapper to checkout a project. Use fetch --help for more details.
  • gclient: A meta-checkout tool. Think repo or git submodules, except that it support OS-specific rules, e.g. do not checkout Windows only dependencies when checking out for Android. Use gclient help for more details and README.gclient.md.
  • git cl: A code review tool to interact with Rietveld or Gerrit. Use git cl help for more details and README.git-cl.md.
  • roll-dep: A gclient dependency management tool to submit a dep roll, updating a dependency to a newer revision.

There are a lot of git utilities included.

Updating

depot_tools updates itself automatically when running gclient tool. To disable auto update, set the environment variable DEPOT_TOOLS_UPDATE=0.

To update package manually, run update_depot_tools.bat on Windows, or ./update_depot_tools on Linux or Mac.

On Windows only, running gclient will install git and python.
