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.

  • how do I run cmd from the git post-commit hook
  • How can I integrate git and svn for TeamCity?
  • Protocol error when pushing to Heroku from CircleCI
  • Authenticate Jenkins CI for Github private repository
  • How do you set up Hudson to work with Git?
  • Jenkins CI Pipeline Scripts not permitted to use method groovy.lang.GroovyObject
  • Now the questions is how must the .gitlab-ci.yml look like to support this?

  • Where does git rebase make changes
  • GIT Hook Doubts
  • Capistrano deploy on windows fails with git
  • GitX - How do you view a single file's commit history?
  • Why did Git create a merge commit with no file changes?
  • Using github to host public git repositories whilst ensuring that sensitive data files remain untracked
  • One Solution collect form web for “Multiple Docker images in .gitlab-ci.yml”

    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
