GitLab CI: Deployment & Environments

This post is a success story of one imaginary news portal, and you're the happy owner, the editor, and the only developer. Luckily, you already host your project code on and know that you can run tests with GitLab CI. Now you’re curious if it can be used for deployment, and how far can you go with it.

To keep our story technology stack-agnostic, let's assume that the app is just a set of HTML files. No server-side code, no fancy JS assets compilation.

Destination platform is also simplistic - we will use Amazon S3.

The goal of the article is not to give you a bunch of copypasteable snippets. The goal is to show principles and features of GitLab CI so that you could easily apply them to your technology stack.

Let’s start from the beginning: no CI in our story yet.

GitLab 8.11.2 released

Aug 25, 2016

Today we are releasing version 8.11.2 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

This version resolves a number of regressions and bugs in the recent 8.11 release.

If you're wondering what happened to 8.11.1, good eye! That version was pulled due to a packaging error.

Please read on for more details.

A huge part of the company culture at GitLab is the fact that we are fully remote. We have no hub; Google Hangouts are at our core and we are thriving on this model.

Working remotely affords so many opportunities that being tied to an office never could. For one, you get back the time you used to spend commuting. Some use this extra time to sleep, be with their families, work out, practice their craft, or just relax. We still have a daily team call, but it can just happen with pajama pants on! 😃
