What is the appropriate way to clone packages in dockerfile?

I am trying to clone or add a package from my repo in dockerfile, I am using:

RUN julia -e 'import Pkg; Pkg.clone("https://github.com/jingpengw/GoogleCloud.jl.git")'

but I was told that I should use add rather than clone

ā”Œ Warning: Pkg.clone is only kept for legacy CI script reasons, please use `add`
ā”” @ Pkg.API /buildworker/worker/package_linux64/build/usr/share/julia/stdlib/v0.7/Pkg/src/API.jl:445

after I replace the clone with add, I got errors. I am probably not using it correctly. The terminal hint is not quite explicit.

Well, what errors are you getting?

julia> Pkg.add("https://github.com/jingpengw/GoogleCloud.jl.git")'

using Pkg

(see the docs)


can you post an example using ssh instead of https?

I am using the following in Gitlab CI:

julia -e "using Pkg; Pkg.add(\"git@gitlab.com:MyPackages/MyPkg.jl.git\")"

but I keep getting this error:

ERROR: git@gitlab.com:MyPackages/MyPkg.jl.git is not a valid packagename

using Pkg

(see the docs)


Ok. Just wanted to confirm. In the docs there is no example with the git@... format, maybe it could be added.

That would be a nice addition
