Time Resource

Implements a resource that reports new versions on a configured interval. The interval can be arbitrarily long.

This resource is built to satisfy "trigger this build at least once every 5 minutes," not "trigger this build on the 10th hour of every Sunday." That level of precision is better left to other tools.

Source Configuration

  • interval: Optional. The interval on which to report new versions. Valid examples: 60s, 90m, 1h. If not specified, this resource will generate exactly 1 new version per calendar day on each of the valid days.

  • location: Optional. Default UTC. The location in which to interpret start, stop, and days.

    e.g.

    location: Africa/Abidjan
    
  • start and stop: Optional. Limit the creation of new versions to times on/after start and before stop. The supported formats for the times are: 3:04 PM, 3PM, 3PM, 15:04, and 1504. If a start is specified, a stop must also be specified, and vice versa. If neither value is specified, both values will default to 00:00 and this resource can generate a new version (based on interval) at any time of day.

    e.g.

    start: 8:00 PM
    stop: 9:00 PM
    

    Deprecation: an offset may be appended, e.g. +0700 or -0400, but you should use location instead.

    To explicitly represent a full calendar day, set start and stop to the same value.

    e.g.

    start: 6:00 AM
    stop: 6:00 AM
    
  • days: Optional. Limit the creation of new time versions to the specified day(s). Supported days are: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    e.g.

    days: [Monday, Wednesday]
    

These can be combined to emit a new version on an interval during a particular time period.

Behavior

check: Produce timestamps satisfying the interval.

Returns current version and new version only if it has been longer than interval since the given version, or if there is no version given.

in: Report the given time.

Fetches the given timestamp, writing the request's metadata to input in the destination.

Parameters

None.

out: Produce the current time.

Returns a version for the current timestamp. This can be used to record the time within a build plan, e.g. after running some long-running task.

Parameters

None.

Examples

Periodic trigger

resources:
- name: 5m
  type: time
  source: {interval: 5m}

jobs:
- name: something-every-5m
  plan:
  - get: 5m
    trigger: true
  - task: something
    config: # ...

Trigger once within time range

resources:
- name: after-midnight
  type: time
  source:
    start: 12:00 AM
    stop: 1:00 AM
    location: Asia/Sakhalin

jobs:
- name: something-after-midnight
  plan:
  - get: after-midnight
    trigger: true
  - task: something
    config: # ...

Trigger on an interval within time range

resources:
- name: 5m-during-midnight-hour
  type: time
  source:
    interval: 5m
    start: 12:00 AM
    stop: 1:00 AM
    location: America/Bahia_Banderas

jobs:
- name: something-every-5m-during-midnight-hour
  plan:
  - get: 5m-during-midnight-hour
    trigger: true
  - task: something
    config: # ...

Development

Prerequisites

  • golang is required - version 1.9.x is tested; earlier versions may also work.
  • docker is required - version 17.06.x is tested; earlier versions may also work.
  • go mod is used for dependency management of the golang packages.

Running the tests

The tests have been embedded with the Dockerfile; ensuring that the testing environment is consistent across any docker enabled platform. When the docker image builds, the test are run inside the docker container, on failure they will stop the build.

Run the tests with the following commands for both alpine and ubuntu images:

docker build -t time-resource -f dockerfiles/alpine/Dockerfile .
docker build -t time-resource -f dockerfiles/ubuntu/Dockerfile .
