Bamboo and node.js recipe

Hello atlassians,

We are using JIRA OnDemand+Confluence+Bitbucket. Thinking of Bamboo integration because our node.js project is mature enough to implement at least basic automation, testing mainly. We like DigitalOcean cloud very much and use it for various purposes.

What should one do to make Bamboo OnDemand build, test, and deploy a node.js project? Just an outline would be sufficient answer.

Note: we are using mocha as testing framework, gulp as a command line build tool.

Bamboo currently does not come with a dedicated node.js task set - it will be available with 5.7 (and a bit sooner than that for OnDemand customers) . For now, you'd have to resort to scripting your build using script tasks. It's best to give Bamboo a spin using a local trial (non OD) and see what you do.

You may also consider using the dedicated task set from Node.js Bamboo plugin to see what's coming to OnDemand in one-two months.

Indeed. Bamboo OD requires amazon account and quite a lot of setup. So, if an OD user would like to build and test his project he should not use Bamboo either OD or local. Much faster would be to install free TeamCity to a DigitalOcean VM.

I have to answer own question.

Using Bamboo OnDemand for simple node.js tasks is an overkill. It is too complicated instrument. Especially in the cloud. Quick start is not what you get with Bamboo.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
