Taskcluster Github Service

Task Status

This service monitors all of the repositories associated with an organization for changes and schedules Taskcluster tasks for any repository which contains a .taskcluster.yml configuration file. The goal of this project is to provide project owners a method for scheduling jobs in Taskcluster which is quick and straight forward.

NOTE: This project used to provide a base docker image for convenience's sake, but it has been deprecated due to not being that useful and not being kept up-to-date. The image will continue existing, but we recommend migrating to another image.

Adding status badges to your project's README:

Insert the following string (replacing the words in caps with your organization or user name, repository name and the branch name) to the readme file in your project's repository: [![Task Status](https://github.taskcluster.net/v1/repository/USERNAME/REPONAME/BRANCHNAME/badge.svg)](https://github.taskcluster.net/v1/repository/USERNAME/REPONAME/BRANCHNAME/latest)


API Server

Listens for WebHooks and, if they are valid, forwards them to a pulse exchange.


Listen for WebHook triggered pulse messages and attempts to schedule Taskcluster tasks for any events related to a repository which contains a .taskcluster.yml file.


Run Tests

To run the tests, use yarn test. No credentials are necessary. Some tests will be skipped, but it is fine to submit a pull request as long as nothing fails.

To run all tests, you will need appropriate Taskcluster credentials. Using taskcluster-cli, run eval $(taskcluster signin --scopes assume:project:taskcluster:tests:taskcluster-github), then run yarn test again.

To test the components separately, run:

  • server: <set the environment variables> node src/main.js server
  • handlers: <set the environment variables> node src/main.js worker


This service will auto-deploy to staging in Heroku once merged into master and CI runs are successful. (You can install our staging integration here.) If you need to force a deploy because we've broken CI in some way and this urgently needs to be deployed, you can do it from the Heroku console.

Once the new version has been deployed to staging, you can verify it is working with npm run checkStaging. Note that you will need an active SSH key with write access to https://github.com/taskcluster/taskcluster-github-testing to run this check (but, no other credentials!)

After you confirm it works on stage, deploy to production with the pipeline.
