Learn more A Framework with Batteries Included Buildbot is a framework in which you implement a system that matches your workflow and grows with your organization. Learn more Buildbot Basics Buildbot supports distributed, parallel execution of jobs across multiple platforms, flexible integration with version-control systems, extensive status reporting, and more. Buildbot in Action At its core, Buildbot is a job scheduling system: it queues jobs, executes the jobs when the required resources are available, and reports the results. Your Buildbot installation has one or more masters and a collection of workers.

Support for the old worker-side source checkout steps was removed in Buildbot The old source steps used to be imported like this: from buildbot. All source checkout steps accept some common parameters to control how they get the sources and where they should be placed. The remaining per-VC-system parameters are mostly to specify where exactly the sources are coming from. The options are incremental Update the source to the desired revision, but do not remove any other files generated by previous builds.

This allows compilers to take advantage of object files from previous builds. This mode is exactly same as the old update mode. Build steps that follow will need to regenerate all object files. Methods are specific to the version-control system in question, as they may take advantage of special behaviors in that version-control system that can make checkouts more efficient or reliable.

Source Steps are special in that they perform some operations outside of the workdir like creating the workdir itself. If the specific VC system supports branches and a specific branch is specified in the step parameters via branch or defaultBranch parameters then the latest revision on that branch is checked out. This is provided to make life easier for workers which are stuck behind poor network connections. The concept explained here is common to all steps and applies to repourl as well as for baseURL when applicable.

This grabs the repository from the source stamp of the build. This can be a security issue, if you allow force builds from the web, or have the WebStatus change hooks enabled; as the worker will download code from an arbitrary repository. The codebase must correspond to a codebase assigned by the codebaseGenerator. If your repositories are particularly large, then you may need to increase this value from its default of 20 minutes. The usual property interpolations can be used in environment variable names and values - see Properties.

Make sure this setting matches your changehook, if you have that installed. This will be appended to repourl to create the string that will be passed to the hg clone command. If alwaysUseLatest is True then the branch and revision information that comes with the Build is ignored and branch specified in this parameter is used. If set and using inrepos branches, clobber the tree at each branch change. Otherwise, just update to the branch. The full mode has three methods defined: clobber It removes the build directory entirely then makes full clone from repo.

This can be slow as it need to clone whole repository fresh This remove all other files except those tracked by VCS. Note The Buildbot supports Git version 1.

If this parameter is not specified, and the Build does not provide a branch, the default branch of the remote repository will be used. The depth defaults to 1 and can be changed by passing an integer instead of True. This option can be used only in full builds with clobber method.

Git will try to grab objects from this path first instead of the main repository, if they exist. This renderable option allows that to be configured to an alternate name. This solves issues of long fetches being killed due to lack of output, but requires Git 1.

Its value is True on Git 1. This way new repository will be cloned. If retry fails it fails the source checkout step. The exact method for doing this is controlled by the method argument. The full mode has four methods defined: clobber It removes the build directory entirely then makes full clone from repo.

This can be slow as it need to clone whole repository. To make faster clones enable shallow option. If shallow options is enabled and build request have unknown revision value, then this step fails.

This is equivalent to git clean -d -f -f then fetch. This way we make fresh builds with very less bandwidth to download source. The behavior of source checkout follows exactly same as incremental. It performs all the incremental checkout behavior in source directory. For the following keys, a value of True appends the same-named Git argument: all :.


Buildbot Basics

Buildbot no longer supports Python 2. This tutorial is all about instant gratification and the five minute experience: in five minutes we want to convince you that this project works, and that you should seriously consider spending time learning the system. In this tutorial no configuration or code changes are done. This tutorial assumes that you are running Unix, but might be adaptable to Windows. Thanks to virtualenv , installing buildbot in a standalone environment is very easy. For those more familiar with Docker , there also exists a docker version of these instructions. You should be able to cut and paste each shell block from this tutorial directly into a terminal.
