In the previous article I detailed how to build assets with Webpack Encore on Github Actions. But how to achieve the same using Gitlab CI?
Build assets using Github Actions was not really easy at first. However, with Gitlab CI, the configuration for the same result is a little more straight forward:
image: node:14.3-alpine cache: paths: - node_modules/ before_script: - yarn install build: script: - ./node_modules/.bin/encore production artifacts: name: "assets" paths: - public/build/
The build is based on a nodejs Docker image (here, version 14.3). The CI is configured to cache the node_modules directory, then run the yarn install command to retrieve up-to-date dependencies.
After that, it executes Encore in production mode in order to have the assets in a compressed format.
Finally, an assets artifact is created with the build content, which is present in the public/build directory.
Et voilà! Your Gitlab CI can now build your assets with Webpack Encore :)
