Dagger: A Portable Devkit for CI/CD Pipelines

Dagger

Dagger is a portable devkit for CICD.

Using Dagger, software teams can develop powerful CICD pipelines with minimal effort, then run them anywhere. Benefits include:

  • Unify dev and CI environments. Write your pipeline once, Dagger will run it the same everywhere.
  • Reduce CI lock-in. No more re-writing everything from scratch every 6 months.

How does it work?

  1. Automate actions with your favorite programming language. No proprietary SDK: just regular shell, Go, Javascript, Python...
  2. Reuse actions from a large and growing catalog.
  3. Tie it all together in CUE - a revolutionary declarative language invented at Google. No more YAML hell!
  4. Test and debug instantly on your local machine. No more waiting 10min to catch a typo.
  5. Run your pipelines on any Docker-compatible runtime, for maximum portability. This means most modern CI runners can run Dagger out of the box.

Serverless CI/CD on the AWS Cloud

CI/CD pipelines have long played a major role in speeding up the development and deployment of cloud-native apps. Cloud services like AWS lend themselves to more agile deployment through the services they offer as well as approaches such as Infrastructure as Code. There is no shortage of tools to help you manage your CI/CD pipeline as well.

While the majority of development teams have streamlined their pipelines to take full advantage of cloud-native features, there is still so much that can be done to refine CI/CD even further. The entire pipeline can now be built as code and managed either via Git as a single source of truth or by using visual tools to help guide the process.

The entire process can be fully automated. Even better, it can be made serverless, which allows the CI/CD pipeline to operate with immense efficiency. Git branches can even be utilized as a base for multiple pipelines. Thanks to the three tools from Amazon; AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CodeDeploy, serverless CI/CD on the AWS cloud is now easy to set up.

CI/CD Tutorial for Xamarin Android with Google Play Publishing in Azure DevOps | Part 2.

If you haven’t seen part 1, click here, and start build up your CI/CD pipeline now.

Part 2 Contains:

  • Configuring build with creating signed APK, and making artifacts from it
  • Setting up branch policy to master

Configure some magic

Let’s go back to Pipelines. Edit your previously created pipeline by clicking the three dot on the pipelines row.

Edit the previously created pipeline

CI is based on cloud machines hosted somewhere over the world. This computers called as agents. They are used to follow your instructions, defined in the yml file. The base Xamarin.Android yml is only to build your code. But we will make some additional steps in order to create a signed APK of every build. Follow up, to complete this setup.

Recommended branching strategy for this is to keep a development branch, and pull request your feature branches to it, and finally pull request the development branch to the master, and keep your master is always at your production version. The figure below shows visually this method. Source: https://dzone.com/articles/feature-branching-using-feature-flags-1

Create a signed APK or bundle from every build

First, set up some variables for this pipeline. You will find a Variables button on the right top of the tab. Click on it.

How To Setup a CI/CD Pipeline With Kubernetes 2020 - DZone DevOps

When it comes to DevOps, the word that clicks in mind is CI/CD pipeline. Let’s have a look at Definition of CI/CD pipeline:

CI is straightforward and stands for continuous integration, a practice that focuses on making preparing a release easier. But CD can either mean continuous delivery or continuous deployment and while those two practices have a lot in common, they also have a significant difference that can have critical consequences for a business.

CI stands for Continuous Integration, and CD stands for Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment. You can think of it as a process which is similar to a software development lifecycle.

Systems provide automation of the software build and validation process-driven continuously by running a configured sequence of operations every time a software change is checked into the source code management repository. These are closely associated with agile development practices and closely related to the emerging DevOps toolsets.

In the DevOps world, we have a plethora of toolsets that can help and leverage CICD capabilities.

  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Proxies
  • Git
  • Jenkins/ Jenkins X
  • Ansible
  • Chef
  • Code Pipeline, etc

This blog gives direction to up and running your CICD pipeline running on the Kubernetes cluster by the GitLab CICD pipeline.

Prerequisites

  • Hands-on knowledge of Docker containers
  • Hands-on knowledge of Kubernetes architecture and understanding
  • The Idea of how to write YAML files
  • Up and Running Kubernetes cluster

How Continuous Testing in DevOps Enables Quality in the CI/CD Pipeline

An overview of the process of Continuous Testing and how this branch of DevOps can fit into your development process to create a better end product.

We all understand the importance of software testing and how it transforms a business by enabling the delivery of quality products to clients in shorter delivery cycles. It’s impossible to run test cases manually by evaluating the quality of each line of code at every step of the Continuous Delivery process. This is where Continuous testing in DevOps comes into the picture.
