How can I use Bazel with pipelines?

I want to use the  Bazel build tool to create my artifacts on the pipelines. What would be the best way to install and use bazel in the pipelines so I can have cached builds? Has anyone ever got it to work?

2 answers

I got bazel to work in a pipeline and reuse the cached arifacts. Caching the default ~/.cache/bazel directory didn't work for me (complained about corrupt installation on repeated builds), but using --disk_cache flag did. Something like the following:


- step:
- bazel
- bazel test --disk_cache=~/.cache/my-bazel //...
bazel: ~/.cache/my-bazel

Hi Victor,

For running and install Bazel, you can do so similar as in a normal Bash environment. You can also use a Docker image from DockerHub that already has Basel installed. There are currently no official Bazel images, so you will need a community created one.

Documentation on configuring Docker images:

For caching, you configure specific directories to be cached. So in this case, you can use cache directories from Bazel.

Bazel provides some documentation on default caches here:

Pipelines Cache documentation can be found here:
