Hi everyone,

This was probably asked many times here, but I don’t know where, I am wondering, did anyone successfully/happily migrated their CI/CD from Jenkins (running on Kubernetes) to another tool (paid or OS)? Which tools can you recommend?

we did, from jenkins to argo cd

I wonder if a tool (a Github/Gitlab bot) exists that tracks changes of a set of files, a certain file or a file’s content in one repo and propose changes to corresponding files in other repos via PRs/MRs?

perhaps in conjunction with git-xargs? https://github.com/gruntwork-io/git-xargs

I saw this on Reddit! Looks kinda awesome. Theoretically Logstash can achieve all the same stuff as this project right? Or am I missing something?

It takes inputs, processes them based on Bloblang and the sends them places?

I haven’t used Logstash in awhile but I’d be shocked if it can do all of the inputs/outputs that benthos is claiming
processes them based on Bloblang
Bloblang is 1 of many different processors it can execute. https://www.benthos.dev/docs/components/processors/about

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

Cool just trying to scope out what it can do vs. what we deploy right now. Logstash acts as fantastic glue for a lot of things, as well as being good for logs

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

Are you related to the project? I’d love to see a more complex example project of it in use

Zach avatar

Nope I just saw it mentioned on reddit too

Zach avatar

It looks really useful though, we have several in-house apps that I think I could replace with benthos deployments

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

Yeah nice, kinda the same. I used logstash and grok to achieve what benthos does with bloblang

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

It replaced some python apps we maintained

Rhys Davies avatar

Logstash is great but always good to be aware of other solutions I guess

It’s more about logs and metrics (rather than “data”) but I think also Vector (https://vector.dev/) it’s worth to be take into consideration. It looks very promising.

I use asdf and direnv together and it’s wonderful. It changes the version of tools I’m using based on the directory I’m in. Takes a few mins to get set up, but I’d never go back

I would love to see how I can use this in the Terraform+AWS ecosystem, so I can integrate this with my Terraform Taskfile

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

Go through this process, then for your project directories, you need to set up a .envrc (which I can post an example of my python projects here if you like) and a .tool-versions file (both of which I globally git ignore to save me committing them to VCS)

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

that’s exactly what I do

I use asdf to manage terraform

Mohammed Yahya avatar

nice

and direnv to manage the version based on the project I’m in, works like a charm

Mohammed Yahya avatar

awesome

Rhys Davies avatar

happy hunting!

managedkaos avatar

for group/team projects, couldn’t you include the config in RCS so that others use the same tool versions? I know TF has the required_version = "~> 0.14" setting in the code, but seems like you could have another point of enforcement with the direnv and/or tool-versions config in place.

I should say i am hyper sensitive on this point after being pulled into projects where the team is still on 0.12 and my env is set up to use 0.14 and 0.15

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

I think if .tool-versions was a widely used thing I’d be super down with that. So far I’ve only seen asdf use it (I think?) so I prefer keeping it out of shared projects because it’s a config file specific to a tool I use

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

Unless of course you get buy-in from your whole team to want to use asdf then yeah, it would be good

Rhys Davies avatar
Rhys Davies

I also have to deal with a few versions of Terraform and it used to be quite painful

managedkaos avatar
managedkaos

agree. i also go back and forth about including/excluding VS Code configs in RCS. if its the standard tool, then the whole team can benefit. it not its another annoying/confusing file in the repo

managedkaos avatar
managedkaos

for TF versions i am using tfswitch

there are lot of tools for managing tf versions and even Terragrunt like tfenv and tgenv, but this adsf allow you to includes other Terraform helpers like terraform-docs , tflint, tfsec …. among other tools, so in your makefile or taskfile you only include one tool for managing terraform dependencies (helpers)
