I was testing some Gitlab functionalities on my last jobs, but I've never played it by myself so, I decided to migrate my personal wiki/toolbox into Gitlab pages and see how it goes.
Why Gitlab? Because I am feeling more comfortable with it. Github is a very nice SCM but I wanted to start working with Gitlab and I though that this could be a very nice opportunity to do so.
So, I migrated my repository from Github to Gitlab, just pushing all the files to an empty Gitlab repository project. That's all.
Also I created a ".gitlab-ci.yaml" file with a few steps to control the deployment:
image: python:3.8-buster before_script: - pip install -r requirements.txt test: stage: test script: - mkdocs build --strict --verbose --site-dir test artifacts: paths: - test except: - master pages: stage: deploy script: - mkdocs build --strict --verbose --site-dir public artifacts: paths: - public only: - master
Leaving this file in the repository root path, now the project looks like this:
CMD> tree -a -L 1 . ├── docs ├── .git ├── .gitignore ├── .gitlab-ci.yml ├── mkdocs.yml ├── README.md └── requirements.txt 2 directories, 5 files
When I just committed my changes into the repository, everything starts to run and the CI finally just deployed my project into Gitlab Pages. Here is the result: Cosckoya Gitlab pages.
I really want to test some more Gitlab CI/CD (Terraform, Docker, Helm) and integrations (Hangouts, Slack) with this new toy of mine.
