Is a must in today’s software architecture. Setting up a solid CI/CD pipeline will save you countless hours and money immediately and down the line.
There are plenty of tools that can accomplish your CI/CD goals from Jenkins, to CircleCI however in today’s tutorial I will be showing you how to accomplish this using Bitbucket pipelines.
Editing The YAML File
Bitbucket’s pipeline system uses yml files to spin up docker instances and run your scripts. This is an example file that runs composer, generates keys, runs migrations, installs passport and runs the tests. It also only runs when deploying to master branch and sets up a mysql instance and sets the environment keys.
# This is a sample build configuration for PHP. # Check our guides at https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/e8YWN for more examples. # Only use spaces to indent your .yml configuration. # ----- # You can specify a custom docker image from Docker Hub as your build environment. image: lorisleiva/laravel-docker pipelines: branches: master: - step: caches: - composer script: - composer install --prefer-dist --no-ansi --no-interaction --no-progress --no-scripts - cp .env.example .env - php artisan key:generate - php artisan migrate - php artisan passport:install - vendor/bin/phpunit services: - mysql - step: name: Deploy to prod deployment: production # trigger: manual # Uncomment to make this a manual deployment. script: - echo "Deploying to prod environment" - curl -X GET https://forge.laravel.com/servers/148653/sites/653797/deploy/http?token=4Q8e1kFPmFsHbxOBek7jcqikAvGVTbiX50tsPUPK definitions: services: mysql: image: mysql:5.7 variables: MYSQL_DATABASE: 'ben' MYSQL_RANDOM_ROOT_PASSWORD: 'yes' MYSQL_USER: 'homestead' MYSQL_PASSWORD: 'secret'
Why Is Continuous Integration Important?
I did an article about why continuous integration is important to the solo developer and I suggest everyone take a few moments and read that article. It outlines why having a solid CI/CD plan in your architecture, however the TL;DR is that is saves you time, money, effort and stress by spending the little bit of time up front to ensure you have tested and tried code before you ship to production.
