github action [Resolved]
« on: September 28, 2020, 06:50:53 pm »
Do you know how to set up a github action to use CB?

I got

> Error: Unable to initialize GTK+, is DISPLAY set properly?

when using

Code
codeblocks --no-splash-screen --target=Release --build Project.workspace

You can't. Using the build system of cb on headless linux is not possible at the moment.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Can you install some dummy x server? I have Xvfb on my headless server and it works (somehow, there are still some quirks)

Just found GabrielBB/xvfb-action
which allows to run CB:

Notice that default.conf has also to be provided.

result is similar to:

Code
name: ubuntu-codeblocks

on: [push, pull_request]

jobs:
  linux:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest

    steps:
    - name: Checkout
      uses: actions/[email protected]

    - name: apt-get update
      run: sudo apt-get update -y

    - name: apt-get install -y codeblocks
      run: sudo apt-get install -y codeblocks

    - name: codeblocks's default configuration
      run: |
        mkdir -p ~/.config/codeblocks
        cp codeblocks/default.conf ~/.config/codeblocks/

    - name: build projects
      uses: GabrielBB/[email protected] # fake X-server as codeblocks requires displays :/
      with:
        run: codeblocks --no-splash-screen --target=Release --build Project.workspace
 


my action
