We are looking for someone who would be willing to provide a build server for Lemmy’s continuous integration. This is used to ensure that new changes and pull requests pass all the checks, and that the code is written well. At the moment we are using a small VPS for this purpose (2 vCPU, 2 GB RAM). This works but is quite slow, and can slow down the development process with unnecessary waiting times.
For this reason we are looking for a community member with a spare server or computer, who would be willing to provide it as a build server. There are no specific hardware requirements, but the faster the better. The build server has to run 24/7 and run the Drone Docker Runner. The setup is very easy, especially if your machine is already running docker. If you have such a server and are willing to provide it, please comment below with the specs.
Additionally we are also looking for an ARM builder, so that we can provide official releases for this platform as well. Note that some Raspberry Pi models seem unable to build Lemmy (our 4GB memory builder failed), so please try if the compilation works on your device. If you can provide an ARM builder, also comment below with the specs.
Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
For discussion about the lemmy.ml instance, go to !firstname.lastname@example.org.
is it ok to test it inside a docker image? as i use this machine for my gitlab instance as a runner from time to time, and like to keep the host system clean. In fact only docker and the gitlab-runner is currently installed.
One thing I’ve forgotten, The Disk Space is not the biggest (therefore I always cleanup my used docker instances in my gitlab-ci build process):
will that be enough?
cargo install lemmy_serverin the official Docker Image of Rust:
load average: 6,15, 6,23, 5,84
Finished release [optimized] target(s) in 35m 03s
That looks good then, I will send you a pm.
drone seems up and running :)
