Woodpecker is a community fork of the Drone CI system.
- Place your pipeline in a file named
.woodpecker.ymlin your repository
- Pipeline steps can be named as you like
- Run any command in the commands section
# .woodpecker.yml pipeline: build: image: debian commands: - echo "This is the build step" a-test-step: image: debian commands: - echo "Testing.."
Build steps are containers
- Define any Docker image as context
- Install the needed tools in custom Docker images, use them as context
pipeline: build: - image: debian + image: mycompany/image-with-awscli commands: - aws help
File changes are incremental
- Woodpecker clones the source code in the beginning pipeline
- Changes to files are persisted through steps as the same volume is mounted to all steps
# .woodpecker.yml pipeline: build: image: debian commands: - touch myfile a-test-step: image: debian commands: - cat myfile
Plugins are straightforward
- If you copy the same shell script from project to project
- Pack it into a plugin instead
- And make the yaml declarative
- Plugins are Docker images with your script as an entrypoint
# Dockerfile FROM laszlocloud/kubectl COPY deploy /usr/local/deploy ENTRYPOINT ["/usr/local/deploy"]
# deploy kubectl apply -f $PLUGIN_TEMPLATE
# .woodpecker.yml pipeline: deploy-to-k8s: image: laszlocloud/my-k8s-plugin template: config/k8s/service.yml
