State of Pipelines

Just a brief update on my current pet project’s Jenkins pipelines setup. The Jenkins BlueOcean graph probably already covers it mostly:

I have parallelized some „Fast Tests“ – all of these take less than a second to run currently due to the small codebase. If any of them fails it doesnt make sense to proceed. Currently these contain

  • phpmd: „mess detector“ using the clean code ruleset to identify unclean code.
  • pdepend: Some code analytics I learned while reading „Clean Architecture“ (review will come to the blog soon I hope).
  • phan: Static Code Analysis
  • phpunit: Unit testing

After those I run API tests with schemathesis. This takes one minute (configurable) and sends random payload to my REST API as per the generated swagger file.

Last but not least I run some acceptance tests, as described in Adventures with PHPUnit, geckodriver and selenium.

For a while I also parallelized the latter two test activities in a „Slow Tests“ block, but I learned that the test execution was very unreliable due to the load the test environments put on my server. So for now they run sequential.

Today I finished some major clean code refactoring and I am happy to say that I could rework most of the code and the tests in place ensured that functionally nothing broke without me checking the actual application manually once! This is a major achievement for me personally, as all my former pet projects based on heavy manual testing on basically every change.
