In Concourse, Resources refer to external resource types such as
So for example, we can run a pipeline which pulls data from github, such as cloning a repository, so in other words the data that was cloned from the github repository is within the container where your tasks will be executed.
Concourse Github Resourse Example
In this tutorial we will use the github resource type, in conjunction with a task that will execute a script, where the script will be inside the github repository.
Our pipeline as
resources: - name: concourse-tutorial type: git source: uri: https://github.com/ruanbekker/concourse-tutorial.git branch: master jobs: - name: job-hello-world public: true plan: - get: concourse-tutorial - task: hello-world file: concourse-tutorial/00-basic-tasks/task_hello_world.yml
You can head over to hello-world task on github to see the task, but all it does is running a
So our job has a task that will call the action defined in our
task_hello_world.yml which retrieves it from the
get step, as you can see it's the
concourse-tutorial resource, which is defined under the resources section as a git resource type.
Set the pipeline:
$ fly -t ci sp -c pipeline.yml -p 04-hello-world apply configuration? [yN]: y pipeline created!
Unpause the pipeline:
$ fly -t ci up -p 04-hello-world unpaused '04-hello-world'
Trigger the job (trigger is off; default)
$ fly -t ci tj -j 04-hello-world/job-hello-world --watch started 04-hello-world/job-hello-world #4 initializing running uname -a Linux 6a91b808-c488-4e3c-7b51-404f73405c31 4.9.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-3+deb9u4 (2018-08-21) x86_64 GNU/Linux succeeded
So this job cloned the github repository, called the task file which calls the bash script from th github repository to run
