Higgins is a continuous integration software implemented in Python and inspired by Jenkins.
It allows to track several repositories and to launch test with respect to dependencies between them.
After the installation with:
pip install higgins
the hn command should be available. The first step is to go the the directory where your sources are located and launch:
This will create ad .hn folder. You can then edit the .hn/config.yaml file to configure your installation. This file should look like this:
my_project: # The name of your project path: relative/path/to/project repository: repo_a: path/to/a # Give a label for each repository path repo_b: path/to/b # Those path are relative to project path repo_c: path/to/c test: true-test: /usr/bin/true false-test: /usr/bin/false triage: # repo_a depends on repo_b ad repo_c repo_a: - repo_b - repo_c build: # Define which commands must be launch for each repo repo_a: - true-test - false-test
Then you can launch:
This command check every repository for new changesets. And then:
Which will launch all needed test. To check the result you can start:
and open http://localhost:5000 to see the results. To avoid to launch the build and trigger commands manually you can pass the --monitor flag to the serve command:
hn serve --monitor # check all repos every 10 minutes
Other ways to define tests
You can associate a list of tests to the same label:
test: slow-test: - bin/sleep 10 - bin/sleep 30 - bin/sleep 40 fast-test: - bin/sleep 1 - bin/sleep 3 - bin/sleep 4
You can alos specify a test with a base command that will be called on a list of files:
test: wc-test: command: /usr/bin/wc -l path: "data/*.txt" exclude: "data/foo.*"
Where the path will be understood as relative to the repository folder. This definition will launch /usr/bin/wc -l on all files of the ‘data’ sub-direcotry that ends with ‘.txt’ and will exclude the ones starting with ‘foo.’ (the wildcards are expanded with the glob method)
If you want to track several projects that shares a similar configuration, you can define inherits a project from another one with the extend key.
project: repository: ... test: ... build: ... project.dev: extend: project path: path/to/dev project.prod: extend: project path: path/to/prod build: ... # override the default build config
In the above example project will be used as a template for project.dev and project.prod. Only the project with a path will be considered.
Override repositories synchronization
By default, higgins will update the repositories by calling hg pull -u inside each of them. The sync-all option allows to override this behaviour. Please note that this command is called once per project (at the root of the project) and not inside each repository.
project: ... sync-all: my_custom_command
- Run tests in parallel (across different projects)
- Provide support for a sync-each method (that will be run inside each repository)
- Support for git
- Allows to choose a default banch (per repository ? per project ?)
