  1. Ruby
    1. Rubocop: enforce the Ruby Style Guide

    5. Reek: code-smell detection for Ruby code
    6. Fasterer: propose performance improvements for Ruby code
    7. Ruby on Rails
      1. Brakeman: security analysis for Ruby on Rails projects
  2. HAML
    1. HAML Lint: enforce rules on HAML style


  1. make sure you've got an instance of a runner with docker executor,
  2. in GitLab, create a user who will add comments to your commits, make sure
    it's got permission to read and comment on your project,
  3. in GitLab, go to your project's settings and then to Variables, and set these:
    1. GITLAB_API_ENDPOINT: e.g. https://your.instance/api/v3
    2. GITLAB_API_PRIVATE_TOKEN: get this by impersonating the user above and
      going to profile / account, it's the first field,
  4. add this to your .gitlab-ci.yml:
  image: seielit/docker-pronto:stable
  stage: build
  allow_failure: true
    - pronto list
    - pronto verbose-version
    - pronto run -f gitlab
    - docker

Maintenance Info

Cheatsheet for Docker commands:

  • docker login --username=XYZ
  • docker build -t docker-pronto .
  • docker tag deadbeef seielit/docker-pronto:0.1
  • docker tag deadbeef seielit/docker-pronto:latest
  • docker push seielit/docker-pronto

Future Work

  1. Specify which runners to use
    1. might need improvements upstream (reading RUNNERS env var)
  2. pronto-poper: add a rule for using a regex to match commit messages
    1. can I do something like this for branch names?
  3. add runners depending on nodejs and others
