How to Run GitLab in Rancher - Part 2

*This is part two of our series on using GitLab and Rancher together to build a CI/CD pipeline, and follows part one from last week, which covered deploying, configuring, and securing GitLab in Rancher. We’ve also made the entire walkthrough available for download. * Using GitLab CI Multi-Runner to Build Containers GitLab CI is a powerful tool for continuous integration and continuous delivery. To use it with Rancher, we’ll deploy a runner that will execute jobs. Read More…

How to Run GitLab in Rancher - Part 1

*Note: This post is the first in a two-part series on using GitLab and Rancher together for continuous integration and deployment, and part two is now up. We’ve also made the entire walkthrough available for download. * Introduction GitLab is, at its core, a tool for centrally managing Git repositories. As one might expect form a platform that provides this service, GitLab provides a robust authentication and authorization mechanism, groups, issue tracking, wiki, and snippets, along with public, internal, and private repositories.

Container Registries You Might Have Missed

Registries are one of the key components that make working with containers, primarily Docker, so appealing to the masses. A registry hosts images that are downloaded and run on hosts in a container engine. A container is simply a running instance of a specific image. Think of an image as a ready-to-go package, like an MSI on Microsoft Windows or an RPM on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. I won’t go into the details of how registries work here, but if you want to learn more,this article is a great read. Read More…

Docker-based build pipelines (Part 1) - Continuous Integration and Testing

Over the last year we have written about getting several application stacks running on top of docker, e.g. Magento, Jenkins, Prometheusand so forth. However, containerized deployment can be useful for more than just defining application stacks. In this series of articles we would like to cover an end-to-end development pipeline and discuss how to leverage Docker and Rancher in its’ various stages. Specifically, we’re going to cover; building code, running tests, packaging artifacts, continuous integration and deployment, as well as managing an application stack in production. Read More…

Building a NodeJS App using MongoDB and Rancher - part 2

In the first part of this post, I created a full Node.js application stack using MongoDB as the application’s database and Nginx as a load balancer that distributed incoming requests to two Node.js application servers. I created the environment on Rancher and using Docker containers. In this post I will go through setting up Rancher authentication with GitHub, and creating a webhook with GitHub for automatic deployments. []Rancher Access Control Starting from version 0.

Building a NodeJS App using MongoDB and Rancher - Part 1

So last week I finally got out from my “tech” comfort zone, and tried to set up a Node.js application which uses a MongoDB database, and to add an extra layer of fun I used Rancher to set up the whole application stack using Docker containers. I designed a small application with Node, its only function is to calculate the number of hits on the website, you can find the code at Github Read More…

Introducing Projects: Docker Environments for Collaboration

In last week’s 0.9 release we added support in Rancher for users to create new deployment environments that can be shared with colleagues. These environments are called projects, and are an extension of the GitHub OAuth integration we added to Rancher last month. The focus of projects is to allow teams to collaborate on Docker environments, and since our user management is connected with GitHub today, we leverage standard GitHub abstractions, such as users, teams and organizations, to support Rancher Projects.

Rancher now supports GitHub OAuth

Hi, I’m Sidhartha Mani, one of the engineers here @Rancher_Labs, and I’ve been working on the user management functionality in Rancher. This week, we released support for GitHub OAuth. I’m very excited about his, because it allows organizations to connect their GitHub org structures to docker and collaborate on management. In this blogpost I’ll show you how to setup GitHub OAuth on Rancher for your organization. Rancher-Auth 2-minute setup. Read More…
