RSpec Buildkite

Output RSpec failure messages as Buildkite annotations as soon as they happen so you can fix them while your build finishes.

A Buildkite build still in progress with an annotation showing an RSpec failure

Installation

Add the gem to your Gemfile, after rspec:

gem "rspec"
gem "rspec-buildkite"

And then bundle:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rspec-buildkite

Usage

Add it to your .rspec alongside your favorite formatter:

--color
--require spec_helper
--format documentation
--format RSpec::Buildkite::AnnotationFormatter

Now run your specs on Buildkite!

Docker & Docker Compose

If you run your RSpec builds inside Docker or Docker Compose then you'll need to make sure that buildkite-agent is available inside your container, and that some environment variables are propagated into the running containers. The buildkite-agent binary can be baked into your image, or mounted in as a volume. If you're using the docker-compose-buildkite-plugin you can pass the environment using plugin configuration. Or you can add them to the environment section in your docker-compose.yml, or supply env arguments to your docker command.

The following environment variables are required:

  • BUILDKITE
  • BUILDKITE_BUILD_URL
  • BUILDKITE_JOB_ID
  • BUILDKITE_AGENT_ACCESS_TOKEN

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
