Little Big CI


The scripts presented at GTAC 2008.

Right now you can fetch these files, run test-bootstrap and on my Windows 7 Home laptop, you're good to go with the canned parameters.


Windows XP, 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2008? Full set of SVN binaries on the path.

Nice to Haves

TortoiseSVN is a nice touch: Ensure the working copy and repo formats match.


You will get

  • an example SVN repo with an example project
  • an example project checkout and test machine checkout
  • 3 scheduled tasks performing the core of the CI process

What use is this?

None - there are many, much more capable CI tools with actual functionality and communities supporting them. However, if you want to play around with a toy CI process, this is not a bad start. Furthermore, working through the pros and cons of the actual process implemented is an extemely instructive exercise.
