I start using Gitlab for my sysadmin repo with “only” shell scripts.
As i’m currently the only real user… i have a local gitlab-ce + gitlab-runner shell locally.
I use shellcheck to validate my script contents in a simple .gitlab-ci.yml
Now, i would to add CD to send my scripts on a staging env to make tests and avoid to :
- send files to the server in a “testing” subfolder + chown/chmod (1)
- or create locally on my computer the test data/folders to execute the scripts.
(1) + problems that i need to modify each time my scripts to change parameters like filder to analyse, or output log folder/file to not impact the prod.
does anyone has some ideas or tutorials on how to manage this please ?
- deploy to a staging env
(- deploy to prod maybe)
- adapt scripts if i send them on staging env if possible ?
I can send some examples or discussion (IRC, or many other chat tools if available)
