The missing GitLab build radiator view

Introduction

gitlab-radiator is a small Node.js application for serving a Jenkins Radiator View inspired web view of your team's CI pipelines fetched from a GitLab CI installation running locally or remotely.

npm version build status

Pre-requisites

Installation

npm install -g gitlab-radiator

Usage

Create a configuration file (see Configuration below) and run:

gitlab-radiator

And if you have an onsite GitLab with HTTPS and self-signed certificates:

NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED=0 gitlab-radiator

You might prefer providing the CA file location in configuration instead of totally disabling TLS certificate checking.

Then navigate with a browser to http://localhost:3000 - or whatever port you did configure.

Configuration

gitlab-radiator looks for its mandatory configuration file at ~/.gitlab-radiator.yml by default. It can be overridden by defining the GITLAB_RADIATOR_CONFIG environment variable.

Mandatory configuration properties:

  • gitlab / url - Root URL of your GitLab installation - or that of GitLab SaaS CI
  • gitlab / access-token - A GitLab access token for allowing access to the GitLab API. One can be generated with GitLab's UI under Profile Settins / Personal Access Tokens.

Example yaml syntax:

gitlab:
  access-token: 12invalidtoken12
  url: https://gitlab.com

Optional configuration properties:

  • projects / include - Regular expression for inclusion of projects. Default is to include all projects.
  • projects / exclude - Regular expression for exclusion of projects. Default is to exclude no projects.
  • projects / order - Array of projects attributes to use for sorting projects. Default value is ['name'].
  • interval - Number of seconds between updateing projects and pipelines from GitLab. Default value is 10 seconds.
  • port - HTTP port to listen on. Default value is 3000.
  • zoom - View zoom factor (to make your projects fit a display nicely). Default value is 1.0
  • columns - Number of columns to display (to fit more projects on screen). Default value is 1
  • caFile - CA file location to be passed to the request library when accessing your gitlab instance.
  • auth / username - Enables HTTP basic authentication with the defined username and password.
  • auth / password - Enables HTTP basic authentication with the defined username and password.

Example yaml syntax:

projects:
  exclude: .*/.*-inactive-project
  order: ['status', 'name']
auth:
  username: 'radiator'
  password: 'p455w0rd'
interval: 30
port: 8000
zoom: 0.85
columns: 4

Breaking changes from 1.x to 2.0

  • Configuration file syntax has changed so that there's only a single interval property instead of two nested ones.

Pull requests are welcome. Kindly check that your code passes ESLint checks by running npm run eslint first. Integration tests are (for now) skipped for pull request builds on Travis as they depend on a secret API token.
