The buildrunner is a script which extracts buildsteps from builders and runs them locally on the slave. It is being developed to simplify development on and reduce the complexity of the Chromium build infrastructure. When provided a master name (with
master.cfg inside) and a builder, it will either execute steps sequentially or output information about them.
runbuild.py is the main script, while
runit.py is a convenience script that sets up
PYTHONPATH for you. Note that you can use
runit.py to conveniently run other scripts in the
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py --list-masters
will list all masters in the search path. Select a mastername (alternatively, use --master-dir to use a specific directory).
Next, we need to pick a builder or slave hostname to build. The slave hostname is only used to locate a suitable builder, so it need not be the actual hostname of the slave you're on.
To list all the builders in a master, run:
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py mastername --list-builders
Example, if you're in
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py chromium --list-builders
will show you which builders are available under the
You can check out the list of steps without actually running them like so:
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py chromium build56-m1 --list-steps
Note that some exotic steps, such as gclient steps, won't show up in buildrunner.) You can show the exact commands of most steps with --show- commands:
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py chromium build56-m1 --show-commands
Finally, you can run the build with:
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py mastername buildername/slavehost
Example, if you're in
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py chromium build56-m1
scripts/tools/runit.py scripts/slave/runbuild.py chromium 'Linux x64'
--stepreject`` can be used to filter steps to execute based on a regex (you can see which with--list-steps
). See-help`for more info.
Build properties and factory properties can be specified using
--build- properties and
--factory-properties, respectively. Since build properties contain a master and builder directive, any master or builder options on the CLI are ignored. Properties can be inspected with either or both of --output-build- properties or --output-factory-properties.
You can specify a log destination (including ‘
-’ for stdout) with
--annotate will enable annotator output.
The an annotated buildrunner can be invoked via chromium_commands.AddBuildStep(). Set the master, builder, and any stepfilter/reject options in factory_properties. For example usage, see f_linux_runnertest in master.chromium.fyi/master.cfg and check_deps2git_runner in chromium_factory.py
