A command line tool for continuous delivery workflow. The
command is a component of Chef Delivery. It can be used to setup and
execute phase jobs as well as interact with a Chef Delivery server.
It is a part of the ChefDK and can be downloaded here.
Getting Started With Delivery
In particular, you will want to be familar with:
To get started make sure you have the following installed:
- Ruby 2.1.5
- Rust 1.12.0 (
brew install rust)
- Openssl (
brew install openssl)
- ChefDK 15.15 or later
Main technologies used in this project:
- Rust (learn more here)
- Cucumber and Aruba for functional testing
- Clap, a CLI parsing library for Rust
We use make to perform various development operations like building and testing. The commands reside in the Makefile, but the Makefile is only used for development. It is not used by omnibus or our delivery cookbooks.
makebuilds the project.
make testruns the unit and functional tests.
make cucumberwill run the cucumber tests.
make cleanwill clean the state of the build.
make update_depswill clean the project and update the
Cargo.lockfile, this should be run periodically to pull in new deps and at the very least when upgrading to a new version of Rust.
make releasebuilds the project with the
make checkbuilds and runs unit tests.
make the project, you can execute your compiled binary
target/debug/delivery <delivery_args>. So, you could run something like
$ target/debug/delivery review
to test the review command with your code in it.
If, for whatever reason, you want to compile and test with cargo's
make release, and use
target/release/delivery, but it will take longer to compile.
You can set the logging level by exporting the
RUST_LOGenvironment variable (e.g
RUST_LOG=debug cargo run).
RUST_BACKTRACE=1for better stack traces on panics.
Run only the embedded unit tests (not functional tests in the
tests/directory nor code embedded in doc comments) via
cargo test --lib. You can also pass a module name to only run matching tests (e.g.
cargo test --lib job).
To test a specific cucumber module, after a
bundle install, you can run
We heavily rely on git in the project. Some of the cucumber tests mock out parts of git.
Those mocks exist in
To mock a git call in your cucumber test, set
<NAME_OF_GIT_COMMAND>_MOCKED to true in
your cucumber test. For example,
features/job.feature mocks several git commands with:
Given I set the environment variables to: | variable | value | | CHECKOUT_MOCKED | true | | MERGE_MOCKED | true | | CLEAN_MOCKED | true | | RESET_MOCKED | true |
You can also mock all of git by setting MOCK_ALL_BASH to true:
Given I set the environment variables to: | variable | value | | MOCK_ALL_BASH | true |
NOTE THAT A FEW COMMANDS ARE MOCKED BY DEFAULT STILL! We want to change this eventually. They are:
These commands will never actuall execute until their mocks are refactored out of
Updating Rust Version
When a new version of Rust comes out and it is on homebrew, it's time to update the Rust version in this repo. There are a few spots to update:
- Very top of the Makefile
- omnibus-software's default version
- The default attributes for the build cookbook for this project
You should also run
make release to bump the
Cargo.lock file to get new versions of our
Delivery Job Implementation Details
delivery job subcommand is used to execute phase recipes for a
project in a workspace. The Delivery server uses
delivery job to
execute the phases of each stage in the pipeline. The same command can
be used locally to execute a phase job in the same way. You can also
delivery job into your own pipeline orchestration if you are
not using the Delivery server.
Jobs are run by specifying the stage and the phase. For example, the following command will run the unit phase of the verify stage:
delivery job verify unit --local
delivery job subcommand will execute the phase recipe by
carrying out the following steps:
jobcommand assumes the current branch is a feature branch with commits that are not on the target branch.
Clone the project repository to a workspace. The location can be customized using
Merge the feature branch into the target branch. This merge will not be pushed anywhere and is often referred to as "the hypothetical merge"; it is the merge that would result if this change were to be approved at this time.
Fetch the build cookbook for the project. The build cookbook location is specified in the project's
berksto fetch dependencies of the build cookbook (as specified in the build cookbook's
chef-clientin local mode with a run list consisting of only the
defaultrecipe of the build cookbook. The
defaultrecipe is intended for preparing a given node to be a "build node" for the project. Typical setup handled in the
defaultrecipe might include installing compilers, test frameworks, and other build and test dependencies. The
defaultrecipe is skipped when
delivery jobis invoked by a non-root and when the
--skip-defaultoption is specified.

--local option, the command will look for configuration
required when interacting with a Delivery server from either
.delivery/cli.toml or additional command line options.
For local use, you can run multiple phases within a single run like so:
delivery job verify "lint syntax unit"
Attributes specific to the project and change are made available for use in build cookbook recipes.
The global workspace path is accesssible at
Attributes in the
node['delivery']['workspace'] namespace provide paths to the
various directories in your change's workspace on your build node.
Attributes in the
node['delivery']['change'] namespace provide details about
this particular job execution.

.delivery/config.json file are made available to you in the
Note for Git Bash + MinTTY Users
If you're running
delivery token on Windows in Git Bash with MinTTY you must include
delivery token to avoid errors.
