Hello, the idea here is to every time a specific branch of my repository (GitLab) is updated it should make a new deploy to the Meteor Galaxy. Has anyone done it? Do you know a tutorial for this?
It looks like from the quickstart guide that you just need to create a YAML file in your git repo root and configure your project to use Runner. Probably want to make sure to use an OS image with Node 8 installed. Your YAML file will at a minimum need to include some Meteor specific commands to install Meteor and then call the
meteor deploy command.
Also, you will need to generate a Meteor login session token (expires I think after 90 days) and copy it into a GitLab environment variable named something like
DEPLOY_SESSION_FILE. To generate the token you need to be able to login in to Meteor as your Galaxy user before executing this command from your local development console:
$ METEOR_SESSION_FILE=deployment_token.json meteor login
I can’t give you an exact working script as I have no way to test it. However this should give you a general idea of what you need to put in your YAML file to deploy a staging branch and you can figure out the exact required syntax. Report back when you get a working script.
