Hudson

Hudson CI is a sweet continuous integration platform. Hudson.rb makes it easy to get started, add/remove Ruby jobs and slave nodes; either from a CLI or an API.

Install

gem install hudson

You do not need to download Hudson CI. It is bundled in the RubyGem.

Example

Hudson.rb is continuously tested using Hudson at http://hudson.thefrontside.net/job/hudson.rb/.

The hudson application allows you to see the projects/jobs and their statuses:

$ hudson list --host hudson.thefrontside.net --port 80
hudson.rb - http://hudson.thefrontside.net/job/hudson.rb/
TheRubyRacer - http://hudson.thefrontside.net/job/TheRubyRacer/

Alternately use environment variables:

$ HUDSON_HOST=hudson.thefrontside.net HUDSON_PORT=80 hudson list

Alternately, it will remember the last Hudson CI master used.

$ hudson list

Usage

To run your own Hudson server (by default opens at http://localhost:3001):

Usage: hudson server [options]
  -p,  --port [3001]                         run hudson server on this port
  -c,  --control [3002]                      set the shutdown/control port
       --daemon                              fork into background and run as a daemon
       --logfile [PATH]                      redirect log messages to this file
  -k,  --kill                                send shutdown signal to control port
       --home [/Users/drnic/.hudson/server]  use this directory to store server data

The remaining CLI tasks are for communicating with a running Hudson server; either the one created above or hosted remotely.

Jobs

To list Jobs/Projects on a Hudson server:

Usage: hudson list [options]

To add Jobs/Projects (create a Job) on a Hudson server:

Usage: hudson create PROJECT_PATH [options]
    --public-scm                          use public scm URL
    --template [ruby]                     template of job steps (available: rails,rails3,ruby,rubygem)
    --assigned-node [ASSIGNED-NODE]       only use slave nodes with this label
    --override                            override if job exists
    --no-build                            create job without initial build

To trigger a Job to build:

Usage: hudson build

To remove a Job from a Hudson server:

Usage: hudson remove PROJECT_PATH

Slave nodes

To list slaves on a Hudson server (including itself):

Usage: hudson nodes

To add a remote machine/remote VM to a Hudson server as a slave:

Usage: hudson add_node SLAVE_HOST
    --slave-port [22]             SSH port for Hudson to connect to slave node
    --label [LABEL]               Labels for a job --assigned_node to match against to select a slave.         --master-key [MASTER-KEY]      Location of master public key or identity file
    --slave-fs [SLAVE-FS]         Location of file system on slave for Hudson to use
    --name [NAME]                 Name of slave node (default SLAVE_HOST)
    --slave-user [deploy]         SSH user for Hudson to connect to slave node

Selecting a Hudson CI server

For all client-side commands, there are --host and --port options flags. These are cached after first used, so are only required for the first request to a Hudson CI server. For example:

hudson create . --host localhost --port 3001
hudson list
hudson create . --override

Alternately, $HUDSON_HOST and $HUDSON_PORT can be provided in lieu of the cached target Hudson CI server

HUDSON_HOST=localhost HUDSON_PORT=3001 hudson list

Developer Instructions

The dependencies for the gem and for developing the gem are managed by bundler.

gem install bundler
git clone http://github.com/cowboyd/hudson.rb.git
bundle install

The test suite is run with:

rake

This launches a Hudson server, runs cucumber features, and kills the Hudson server.

Alternately, manually launch the Hudson server, run features and close the Hudson server:

rake hudson:server:test
rake cucumber:ok
rake hudson:server:killtest
