Multiple Docker images in .gitlab-ci.yml

Here is my problem setup with GitLab and its integrated CI service. I have a current GitLab 8.1. and a gitlabci-multi-runner (0.6.2) with Docker support. After extending the ubuntu:precise image to include git and build-essentials (now named precise:base) I got the following .gitlab-ci.yml running:

image: precise:base
before_script:
   - apt-get install --yes cmake libmatio-dev libblas-dev libsqlite3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
   - apt-get install --yes libarchive-dev liblzma-dev

build:
  script:
    - mkdir build/
    - cd build
    - cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ../
    - make

Now my question is how to include more jobs on different images? Because I need to check if the code compiles (and later on works) on different operating systems like Ubuntu Precise, Ubuntu Trusty, CentOS 6, CentOS 7. To reduce the work I think the best way is to provide different Docker images as base.

  • Skip a submodule during a maven build
  • Can't su to user jenkins after installing Jenkins
  • Ideas on deploying a Social Game's multiple branches
  • Trigger CI Build only on changes to subfolder in VSTS (was TFS Online), using Git
  • Running android emulator during jenkins build
  • Using NAnt and Ivy to build a VB6 project
  • Now the questions is how must the .gitlab-ci.yml look like to support this?

  • Can Git push / pull over the internet to distributed repos?
  • Git locale error on Lion OSX
  • Confusion between merge and commit in Git
  • How to deal with a git local folder within another?
  • Git command to only stage files without conflict markers?
  • Fix git tagging?

    You can define the image to use per job.

    For instance:

    before_script:
       - apt-get install --yes cmake libmatio-dev libblas-dev libsqlite3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
       - apt-get install --yes libarchive-dev liblzma-dev
    
    build:precise:
      image: precise:base
      script:
        - mkdir build/
        - cd build
        - cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ../
        - make
    
    build:trusty:
      image: trusty:base
      script:
        - mkdir build/
        - cd build
        - cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ../
        - make
