Best read in the Cookbook ! also Travis CI, code coverage, testing with Prove.
Gitlab CI is part of
Gitlab and is available on Gitlab.com, for
public and private repositories. Let’s see straight away a simple
image: daewok/lisp-devel before_script: - apt-get update -qy - apt-get install -y git-core - git clone https://github.com/foo/bar ~/quicklisp/local-projects/ test: script: - make test
Gitlab CI is based on Docker. With
image we tell it to use the
one. It includes SBCL, ECL, CCL and ABCL, and Quicklisp is installed
in the home (
/home/lisp/), so we can
quickload packages right
away. If you’re interested it also has a more bare bones option. Gitlab will load the
image, clone our project and put us at the project root with
administrative rights to run the rest of the commands.
test is a “job” we define,
script is a
recognized keywords that takes a list of commands to run.
Suppose we must install dependencies before running our tests:
before_script will run before each job. Here we clone a library
where Quicklisp can find it, and for doing so we must install git
(Docker images are usually pretty bare bones).
We can try locally ourselves. If we already installed Docker and
started its daemon (
sudo service docker start), we can do:
docker run --rm -it -v /path/to/local/code:/usr/local/share/common-lisp/source daewok/lisp-devel:latest bash
This will download the lisp image (±400Mo), mount some local code in
the image where indicated, and drop us in bash. Now we can try a
To show you a more complete example:
image: daewok/lisp-devel stages: - test - build before_script: - apt-get update -qy - apt-get install -y git-core - git clone https://github.com/foo/bar ~/quicklisp/local-projects/ test: stage: test script: - make test build: stage: build only: - tags script: - make build artifacts: paths: - some-file-name
Here we defined two
“test” and “build”, defined to run one after another. A “build” stage
will start only if the “test” one succeesds.
“build” is asked to run
only when a
new tag is pushed, not at every commit. When it succeeds, it will make
the files listed in
paths available for download. We can
download them from Gitlab’s Pipelines UI, or with an url. This one will download
the file “some-file-name” from the latest “build” job:
When the pipelines pass, you will see:
You now have a ready to use Gitlab CI.
