Code of Conduct
Drone follows the CNCF Code of Conduct.
This section of the documentation will help you install and configure the Drone Server and one or many Runners. A runner is a standalone daemon that polls the server for pending pipelines to execute.
Our documentation can help you get started with the different types of pipelines/builds. There are different runners / plugins / extensions designed for different use cases to help make an efficient and simple build pipeline
Plugins are used in build steps to perform actions, eg send a message to slack or push a container to a registry. We have an extensive list of community plugins to customize your build pipeline, you can find those here.
.drone.yml build file.
This build file contains a single pipeline (you can have multiple pipelines too) that builds a go application. The front end with npm. Publishes the docker container to a registry and announces the results to a slack room.

Building from source
Run the changelog generator.
docker run -it --rm -v "$(pwd)":/usr/local/src/your-app githubchangeloggenerator/github-changelog-generator -u drone -p drone -t <secret github token>
You can generate a token by logging into your GitHub account and going to Settings -> Personal access tokens.
Next we tag the PR's with the fixes or enhancements labels. If the PR does not fulfill the requirements, do not add a label.
Before moving on make sure to update the version file
version/version.go && version/version_test.go.
Run the changelog generator again with the future version according to semver.
docker run -it --rm -v "$(pwd)":/usr/local/src/your-app githubchangeloggenerator/github-changelog-generator -u harness -p drone -t <secret token> --future-release v1.0.0
Create your pull request for the release. Get it merged then tag the release.
