Today I setup buildbot for the first time. I have been meaning to for quite some time but today I finally got around to actually doing it. The documentation is not very thorough and I found many outdated versions that actually had more options than the latest documentation had to offer. It is, however, very simple to setup and configure. And I did not need administrator priviledges or a web server or anything. I simply used virtualenv and created both the master and slave in my home directory.
This leads me to my second accomplishment for today. I created a git server in my home directory. It was absurdly simple to do.
First, I created an empty repository,
mkdir repository.git && cd repository.git git init --bare
.git suffix is just a naming convension. It is completely optional)
Then, to push to our bare repository,
git remote add local file:///home/lramage/repository.git git push local master
