Most of the chrome infra source code lives in these repos:
Standalone one-purpose repos:
See also other internal repos.
If you‘re reading this file, you’re probably involved in the Chromium project already. If this is not the case, you might want to read Chromium's Get the Code page to get some background information. In particular, depot_tools needs to be installed.
First, generate and populate a .gitcookies file to provide authentication for accessing the repos. Visit chromium.googlesource.com/new-password, choose to authenticate only chromium.googlesource.com, and follow the provided directions.
The proper way to check out the non-GitHub repositories is to run:
mkdir chrome_infra # or whatever name you please cd chrome_infra fetch infra # or `fetch infra_internal` if you are a Googler
Some Infra tooling requires manual operations to be performed in order to package it for distribution. See Packaging for more information.
If you're a Googler and get authentication errors when running
fetch infra_internal you may need to add authentication for the internal repos to your .gitcookies file. Visit chrome-internal.googlesource.com/new-password, choose to authenticate only chromium.googlesource.com, and follow the provided directions.
If you're not running a supported distribution,
fetch infra will probably fail complaining that it cannot find some packages on Cloud Storage. This happens with architecture-dependent packages like numpy, which need to be compiled. The workaround is to build the packages for yourself. Just run:
infra/bootstrap/build_deps.py gclient runhooks
The first command will build the packages are store them locally. The second command deploy them into
infra/ENV. For more details on this see bootstraping.
If you are a Googler, see more detailed instructions for working in the other infra repositories.
