Focus of the preview launch was to build a fast, reliable, easy to use CI. Today you can connect your github repository in a few clicks, deploy an agent and all your commits are being tested with their status reported to GitHub.
In our latest sprint we have fixed a few issues, mainly centered around usability and clarity of what’s going on with your projects.
The following features were shipped:
The status page for insight into the availability of the service
Agent support for building
default.nixfrom your repository
Agent support for reporting non-attribute evaluation errors
Documentation about how evaluation is performed
The following bugs fixes were shipped:
When there is no agent available, enqueued jobs will show instructions to setup one
To prevent CSRF we’ve tightened
Numerous fixes to the UI:
- breadcrumbs now allow user to switch account or just navigate to it
- no more flickering when switching pages
- some jobs used to be stuck in Building phase
- more minor improvements
In our upcoming spring, #2 we will focus on:
Fine-grained dispatch of individual derivations (instead of just top-level derivation closures from attributes as we shipped in the preview) - what follows is testing and presenting derivations in the UI
Currently we only store the git revision for each job, which will be expanded to include more metadata like branch name, commit message, author, etc
If time allows, preliminary cachix support
You’re still in time to sign up for preview access as we will be expanding access in the following weeks.
