Getting started

Download a binary release, or run it with Docker:

docker run -v `pwd`/workspace.json:/workspace.json -v `pwd`/websysd.json:/websysd.json iankent/websysd -workspace=/workspace.json
  • Optionally set a global environment - see [websysd.json](websysd.json) for an example
  • Create a JSON workspace file - see [workspace.json](workspace.json) for an example
  • Start websysd
  • Open http://localhost:7050

If you didn't name your config files websysd.json and workspace.json:

websysd -global websysd.local.json -workspace myworkspace.json

And if you want to load multiple workspaces:

websysd -workspace myworkspace.json -workspace someproject.json

Why

Too many console windows.

Useful info

  • Active tasks will be killed if websysd dies or is stopped
  • Use the /bin/sh -c executor on Linux
  • Use custom columns and functions to add UI metadata, e.g. display git branch name
    • see examples in [websysd.json](websysd.json) and [workspace.json](workspace.json)

Environment

Default websysd behaviour is to ignore all preset environment variables.

This means you will need to set any variables you want explicitly (including $PATH, which you might want to set to /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin).

You can change this behaviour by setting InheritEnvironment in either the global configuration or a workspace configuration file:

{
    "InheritEnvironment": true
}

If InheritEnvironment is true in the global workspace, the setting is ignored by individual workspaces and the full environment will be inherited anyway.

STDOUT/STDERR logs

Output from tasks is stored in-memory by default.

You can set Stdout and Stderr to a filename per-task to override this behaviour.

Filenames can include environment variables, and $TASK and $RUN are set by websysd.

{
    "Stdout": "/tmp/$TASK-$RUN.out"
}
