Evergreen is a distributed continuous integration system built by MongoDB. It dynamically allocates hosts to run tasks in parallel across many machines.

See the wiki for user-facing documentation.

See the API docs for developer documentation. For an overview of the architecture, see the list of directories and their descriptions at the bottom of that page.


Elastic Host Allocation

Use only the computing resources you need.

Clean UI

Easily navigate the state of your tests, logs, and commit history.

Multiplatform Support

Run jobs on any platform Go can cross-compile to.

Spawn Hosts

Spin up a copy of any machine in your test infrastructure for debugging.

Patch Builds

See test results for your code changes before committing.

Stepback on Failure

Automatically run past commits to pinpoint the origin of a test failure.

Go Requirements

Building the Binaries


  • If you're going to use the makefile, set GOMODCACHE (you can just set it to the output of go env GOMODCACHE, unless you want it somewhere else).
  • check out a copy of the repo into your gopath. You can use: go get or just git clone

Possible Targets:

  • run make build to compile a binary for your local system.
  • run make dist to compile binaries for all supported systems and create a dist tarball with all artifacts.
