🧋 Continuous Integration

Helmwave was built from the very first commit with the idea of running it as part of the CI pipeline in mind.

Let's see how we can get it working on popular CI software.


GitHub action

name: Deploy
on:
  push:


jobs:
  external:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - uses: helmwave/setup-action@v0.2.0
        name: Install helmwave
        with:
          version: '0.16.2'
      - name: templating helmwave.yml.tpl  
        run: helmwave yml
      - name: plan
        run: helmwave build
      - name: deploy
        run: helmwave up

Gitlab-CI

variables:
  HELMWAVE_LOG_LEVEL: debug

helmwave:
  stage: deploy
  environment:
    name: "ref/$CI_COMMIT_REF_SLUG"
  image:
    name: diamon/helmwave:0.16.2
    entrypoint: [""]
  before_script:
    - printenv | grep HELMWAVE
  script:
    - helmwave yml # if it needs
    - helmwave build
    - helmwave up
  artifacts:
