Easy Automated Testing with Pull Request Environments on your own servers with DevShop - Drupaldelphia 2019

DevShop is an open-source Drupal hosting platform that can be used for production, development and testing environments. 

Powered by a Drupal web interface, simply enter your websites source code, name your environments, pick your branches, and start running Behat tests on every git push.

DevShop allows you to setup automated Behat testing without writing any scripts, creating any YAML files, or learning about Jenkins or Docker. 

Easily launch new environments for every pull request or every branch of your git repository.

Come to this session to get a hands-on walkthough of setting up a Drupal site from scratch for automated Behat testing.

Host Your Own Pull Request Environments with Automated Behat Testing

Do you host your own Drupal?

Do you wish you could have that great git-push-deploy workflow provided by so many hosted solutions, but on your own servers?

Wish no more! 

With Open Source DevShop, you can use any linux server to host, test, and develop your Drupal sites.

DevShop installs in minutes, with no special script writing or configuration required. 

In this session, we will demonstrate Automated Pull-Request-Environments with Behat testing, completing and deploying a new feature of our website LIVE in session!

See https://devshop.support for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How does it work?

DevShop is just a Drupal site that manages a basic LAMP stack. All of the logic and all of the service to make it work are self-contained in the Drupal code. This makes it quite easy to understand. If you know PHP and Drupal, you can learn DevShop. There are optional modules for Docker, but it's not necessary. DevShop runs on a single server. 

Is this a hosted service?

No. DevShop is 100% open source. We do not provide hosting services directly. However, if you run your own server, you can sign up for DevShop.Support if you ever need help or SLA-level hosting service.

Is this used in production?

Yes. DevShop was originally created as an extension of Aegir in February of 2012. It was used in production as soon as it was created.

Run CI/CD with preview environments anywhere with self-hosted Git runners.

GitHub Actions and BitBucket Pipelines are amazing. You can control what is run using yaml files in your codebase. 

You can run just about any command, and they provide a really powerful interface for browsing jobs and logs.

Many people are unaware, you can also control where your scripts are run. If you setup a tool called a Git Runner, you can run Git Actions anywhere, including from your local machine.

Deploying a new feature to Drupal in 10 minutes with self-hosted CI/CD

The new Operations Site Runner allows you to spawn environments very quickly using GitHub Actions on your own servers.

It provides a full lifecycle for every pull request, spinning up a new environment, running tests, and leaving it there for humans to review. 

I recently moved ThinkDrop.net to this new system, so I figured it was time to demonstrate it.

Introducing Operations Site Runner: a self-hosted CI/CD platform using GitHub Actions and DDEV.

I've been building and designing automation systems for almost 20 years. I built DevShop on top of Aegir to implement continuous integration and quality control over 10 years ago.

Running CI systems is hard. Really hard. There needs to be an active task runner. A dashboard. API integrations. Tooling. Network Access. It can be incredibly complicated. In the Enterprise? Forget it.

I've been imagining a new system for many years, and here it is.
