Host Your Own Pull Request Environments with Automated Behat Testing - New England Drupal Camp

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 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.

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.
