Deploying to Galaxy using Travis CI or Semaphore

I’m interested in finding a continuous integration solution to speed up the process of merging/deploying/testing at work. So far, I’ve looked into a handful of possibilities, and I’m trying out Travis CI and Semaphore.

Using Travis CI, I’ve gotten as far as investigating the script deployment section, trying to figure out what I need to set up in order to deploy to Galaxy.

Using Semaphore (and @sbr464’s Quick Tutorial - How to setup Semaphore CI for Meteor/Galaxy Continuous Integration), I was able to get as far as starting the deployment process, but I hit the following error:

This looks similar to an issue I was having locally, and was able to resolve by adding

export NODE_OPTIONS="--max_old_space_size=4096"
export TOOL_NODE_FLAGS="--max-old-space-size=4096"

to .bashrc

Does anyone have experience using Travis CI to deploy to Galaxy? Alternatively, has anyone been able to overcome the CALL_AND_RETRY_LAST Allocation failed - JavaScript heap out of memory error on Semaphore? Alternatively alternatively, has anyone had a good experience deploying to Galaxy with a service other than Travis CI or Semaphore?


Semaphore support got back to me and suggested that I add

export NODE_OPTIONS="–max_old_space_size=4096"
export TOOL_NODE_FLAGS="–max-old-space-size=4096"

to my list of deploy commands. I took their advice, and I was then able to successfully use Semaphore to deploy to Galaxy. In case anyone else runs into this issue, I’ve copied my Semaphore deployment server’s commands below:

Deploy commands

  1. curl | /bin/sh
  2. meteor --version
  3. meteor npm install
  4. export METEOR_SESSION_FILE=/home/runner/deployment_token.json
  5. export
  6. export NODE_OPTIONS="–max_old_space_size=4096"
  7. export TOOL_NODE_FLAGS="–max-old-space-size=4096"
  8. meteor deploy --settings /home/runner/GALAXY_DEPLOYMENT_SETTINGS.json
