Configure Your Project for CI/CD
To connect an Emtrey project to a CI/CD, follow these steps:
- Sign into your Emtrey dashboard
- Select the project to connect to CI/CD
- Choose SETTINGS from the project menu
- Click the CONNECT TO YOUR CI/CD PIPELINE button:
- Click CONNECT TO CI/CD button and copy your unique EMTREY_CICD_TOKEN
- Add a new environment variable to your CI/CD pipeline settings, named
EMTREY_CICD_TOKEN, and paste your token from above as it’s value.
Configuring Your CI/CD Tool
Each CI/CD tool needs to be configured a little differently, but the basic steps to running Emtrey remotely are similar:
- Install headless Chrome/Firefox browser (if needed)
- Run the web app locally
- Run the Emtrey CLI tool
To see how to configure your particular tool, refer to one of the following sections below.
EXAMPLE: Check out a working example React project configured to work with CircleCI on Emtrey’s GitHub.
After you can successfully trigger a run in CircleCI, you can ammend the
circleci/config.yml to run the Emtrey CLI.
- Add the
orbs: browser-tools: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Add a step to install a headless version of the Chrome browser:
steps: # Other steps... - browser-tools/install-chrome
- Add a new step to run your application in the background. For example:
steps: # Previous steps... - run: name: start server command: node server.js background: true - run: name: emtrey command: npx emtrey --port=3000
PORT should be replaced by the port number of the local server set in
server.js. For example, the default settings for a React application tells it to start running on port 8080.
At this point, CircleCi is configured to run Emtrey when the pipeline is run!
You must set the
EMTREY_CICD_TOKENin your CircleCI’s project environment variables. Refer to the above section for instructions on how to find your token.
