Scheduler

Gofer runs the containers you reference in the pipeline configuration via a container orchestrator referred to here as a "scheduler".

The vision of Gofer is for you to use whatever scheduler your team is most familiar with.

Supported Schedulers

The only currently supported scheduler is local docker. This scheduler is used for small deployments and development work.

How to add new Schedulers?

Schedulers are pluggable! Simply implement a new scheduler by following the given interface.


type Engine interface {
	// StartContainer launches a new container on scheduler.
	StartContainer(request StartContainerRequest) (response StartContainerResponse, err error)

	// StopContainer attempts to stop a specific container identified by a unique container name. The scheduler
	// should attempt to gracefully stop the container, unless the timeout is reached.
	StopContainer(request StopContainerRequest) error

	// GetState returns the current state of the container translated to the "models.ContainerState" enum.
	GetState(request GetStateRequest) (response GetStateResponse, err error)

	// GetLogs reads logs from the container and passes it back to the caller via an io.Reader. This io.reader can
	// be written to from a goroutine so that they user gets logs as they are streamed from the container.
	// Finally once finished the io.reader should be close with an EOF denoting that there are no more logs to be read.
	GetLogs(request GetLogsRequest) (logs io.Reader, err error)
}
