Zoe Continuous Integration with Gitlab pipelines


GitLab offers an integrated way of running a CI pipeline via the GitLab runners system. The Zoe repository contains the pipeline description in the .gitlab-ci.yml file.

To use it, we suggest to configure the GitLab runner (documentation) with the Docker executor. This ensures tests are run in a clean and isolated environment.

Runner configuration

Using the Docker executor, we configured our runner with these options:

concurrent = 5
check_interval = 0

  name = "ci-server"
  url = "https://gitlab.eurecom.fr/ci"
  token = "<your-token-here>"
  executor = "docker"
  environment = ["DOCKER_AUTH_CONFIG={ \"auths\": { \"docker-registry:5000\": { \"auth\": \"some-base64-string\" } } }", "DOCKER_REGISTRY=docker-registry:5000"]
    image = "docker:latest"
    disable_cache = false
    volumes = ["/cache", "/tls/certificates/ca.crt:/registry-ca.crt:ro", "/var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock"]
    Insecure = false

Please note that since our private registry is protected with TLS, we need to pass also the CA certificate to be able to push Docker images built inside the CI pipeline.
