The work with the master. Storing changes in the repository and pulling them to the repository on the server is a little too cumbersome, especially when many iterations are needed to fix issues with the configurations.

To start a worker connected to a buildbot master at IP address If the master is somewhere else, just change the IP address. As of Sept,the master was at www. You can refer to it by localhost and access other localhosted sites by adding their references to the hosts file C: Based on the miniconda Python ecosystem, you can builsbot your own virtual environments for building the Python wheels.

This requires the following steps on a Windows machine:. In Debian, dpkg-reconfigure dash can be used.

At the moment, it is not possible to use several workers for the same build job. We have to find a new way to generate the configuration.

Information on building the single wrappers can be found on this dedicated page. On Windows, you create a batch script that activates your virtual environment and starts the buildbot worker:.

You might want to run services. If you are tired of the error messages from the non-returning script, you could also use a service wrapper like NSSM to start the script. As written in the Buildbot Wikiyou can start your workers automatically with a so called plist or property list.

Please change the file above according to your needs and pay special attention to username and path definitions. Note that this script calls another Bash script that does the actual work. Or alternatively, you can just launch buildbot worker directly if you do not use conda environment:. Which then can be added to the scheduler with update-rc. This should gracefully terminate the bot at shutdown and restart it again after reboot.



To disable the service, run update-rc. You can enable and disable the daemon by runnning update-rc. Install the service with sudo systemctl enable coolpropworker. Note that the two examples above call a user-script to activate the virtual environment and start the buildbot worker.

Such a script could look like this:. You can use the built-in functionality https: Make sure you use full paths to VBoxManage:. Some parts of the documentation are quite involved. That is why we decided not to rebuild the whole documentation after every commit.

1. Buildbot Tutorial — Buildbot documentation

There is a special python script that runs once a day and performs the most expensive jobs during documentation rebuild. This covers the generation of validation figures for all fluids and the fitting reports for the incompressible fluids. This helps us to keep the continuous integration servers running with an acceptable latency with regard to the commits to the git repository.

However, if you are unlucky and your commit coincides with figure generation, you will experience a long delay between your commit and the appearance of the freshly generated documentation on the website.

You can follow the progress in the logfiles on the buildbot master though. Make sure to set the correct environment variables in an additional file before you run a container, call it for example Dockerfile.

The above commands launch background processes using the docker containes for the Python buildslaves in 64bit and 32bit, respectively. Some steps require the upload of files to different servers. In such cases, you should copy your SSH configuration or other login information to the container to make use of the automatic login that is required for rsync to work properly:.

If you cannot copy the SSH keys, you can change the upload function in the master configuration to employ the built-in upload framework of buildbot. Insome of the buildbot slaves did not perform dodumentation expected. Especially the Python builds on the 64bit Linux machine took ages to complete and we could not find any obvious reason for this behaviour.

To make sure that there documentatiin no hidden flaws in the configuration of the buildbots or the virtual machines. Special configuration files can be used to build docker containers. Storing all configuration tasks in a structured Dockerfile reduces the risk of data loss and allows us to move the slaves between different machines.


Remember that each command in the Dockerfile leads to buiildbot creation of a new layer of files that cannot be deleted. Be careful here and try to bundle commands to save disk space and to keep garbage out of the image. Please also have a look at the CoolProp repository on Docker Hub to see which images are available for documentatioh https: To enable this on OSX I had to do the following: Shut your virtual machine down.

Once you start your box up again, you should be able to access localhost at http: This requires the following steps on a Builsbot machine: This file call the control script to start and stop the buildbot worker. It stays open when being called and waits for a signal to terminate running and endless while-loop.

After catching a signal to terminate, it shuts down the build worker and returns. It is a wrapper for another Bash script allowing us to use launchd on MacOS. A script to start the buildbot worker at boot time Description: This file activates the virtual environment and starts the documentztion workers. It also shuts them down if the system is halted.

Such a script could look like this: It is also used to shut them down during system shutdown. Make sure you use full paths to VBoxManage: Note If you cannot copy the SSH keys, you can change the upload function in the master configuration to employ the built-in upload framework of buildbot.

Warning Remember that each command in the Dockerfile leads to the creation of a new layer of files that cannot be deleted. Bell and the CoolProp Team. Created using Sphinx 1.
