I wanted to setup build server for a personal project I’m working on, and I didn’t want to have any dependencies on the machine, so that I could move it easily. And, if I’m honest, the build server was a personal project as well.
- Build a dotnet core project
- Build an angular project
- No dependencies on the machine
I set out to put together a docker-compose file that had everything in it that I needed. This is what I came up with.
Most of this is pretty straightforward.
- A TeamCity container with log and data directories
- A TeamCity Agent container that comes with dotnet build dependencies.
- A TeamCity Agent container that comes with npm.
- An environment variable (npm.installed) that is added to the npm agent. This will help later.
> docker-compose up -d
Navigate to http://localhost:8111
TeamCity will startup. Follow the directions to configure it using HSQLDB (we’ll use postgres another time) and create a user.
Configure an npm build (I referenced this excellent article).
Now do the following to make sure this build will only run on the correct agent(s):
- Open your build configuration
- Click > Edit Configuration Settings
- Click > Agent Requirements
- Click > Add New Requirement
- Require that npm.installed exists as shown below
Now you should be able to run your build. Next we’ll…
- Build docker images
- Publish docker images to a docker registry
Hope it helps!
