Basic Concourse Pipeline With Bash and Golang Jobs

From one of my previous posts, we went through the steps to setup a Concourse CI Server on Ubuntu .

What are we doing today?

Today we will setup a basic pipeline that executes 2 jobs, one using a alpine container that runs a couple of shell commands, and the other job will be using a Golang container to build and execute a golang app. I will also be experimenting with auto trigger, that will trigger the pipeline to run its jobs every 60 seconds.

Our Pipeline will look like the following:

apply configuration? [yN]: y
pipeline created!
you can view your pipeline here: http://10.20.30.40:8080/teams/main/pipelines/bash-and-golang

the pipeline is currently paused. to unpause, either:
  - run the unpause-pipeline command
  - click play next to the pipeline in the web ui

Unpause

Unpause your Pipeline:

1

$ fly -t ci unpause-pipeline -p bash-and-golang
unpaused 'bash-and-golang'

Trigger

Trigger your first job, which will be the Alpine job:

1
2
$ fly -t ci trigger-job --job bash-and-golang/my-alpine-job
started bash-and-golang/my-alpine-job #2

Trigger your second job, which will be the Golang job:

1
2
$ fly -t ci trigger-job --job bash-and-golang/my-golang-job
started bash-and-golang/my-golang-job #2

Remember, we can also monitor the output from the shell:

echo "Go Version: `go version`"
echo "Hostname is: $HOSTNAME"
echo "Owner is: $OWNER"
echo bar > /tmp/word.txt
export MAGIC_WORD=`cat /tmp/word.txt`
echo "Magic word is $MAGIC_WORD"
cat > app.go << EOF
package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
  fmt.Println("Hello, World!")
}
EOF
go build app.go
echo "Go App Executing:"
./app

User: root
Go Version: go version go1.6.4 linux/amd64
Hostname is:
Owner is: james
Magic word is bar
Go App Executing:

succeeded

And you can also debug the job by dropping yourself into the container by using hijack:

1
$ fly -t ci hijack --job bash-and-golang/my-golang-job
