Docker pushes watcher is an app that with new task drivers and new jobs has replaced Google Cloud Build for Skia. The tracking bug for this work was skbug/9514.
Using cloud build, the “skia-release” and “skia-wasm-release” images were created and pushed per commit in the Skia repository. The “infra” image was created and pushed per commit in the Buildbot repository.
Additionally cloudbuild.yaml created and pushed new images for various apps like fiddler, skottie, particles, debugger, etc.
The continuous-deploy app then ran pushk on those apps and deployed them to k8s.
The Cloud build framework worked but did not use Skia infra framework and was thus difficult to see failures and diagnose problems. The framework was replaced with task drivers and the docker-pushes-watcher app.
Now all failures when building apps cause the corresponding jobs to turn red on status.skia.org for the commits that break things, this makes failures much easier to find for the Skia Gardener. Failures in the docker-pushes-watcher app show up as alerts for the Infra Gardener to diagnose and fix.
A task driver was written to build and push a specified docker image (build_push_docker_image).
The following jobs were then created in the different repositories:
These jobs could run out of order because of backfilling. Due to this the “Docker Pushes Watcher” app (described below) calculates which image is the most recent and then tags it with the “prod” tag.
Task Drivers were also written to create and push Docker images of various apps that depend on the “gcr.io/skia-public/skia-release” and “gcr.io/skia-public/skia-wasm-release” images:
The following jobs were created in the Skia repo using the above task drivers:
All above task drivers send a pubsub message when a docker image is created and pushed.
A task driver has been written to build and push images of infra apps (push_apps_from_infra_image). The task driver sends a pubsub message after it builds the image; the docker_pushes_watcher app then calls pushks on those images. Pushk finds the apps that use those images, updates the current version of the images and deploys them.
