Tachikoma - Continuous gem dependency updating with pull request
Today you manage gems of Ruby application with Bundler, but you often neglect to update.
Whatever gems your application depends on, you can get the most benefit by following cutting-edge. Eventually you have to update them, so if you do it more frequently you'll have less pain.
We created Tachikoma, an open-sourced bundle update automation tool. In this talk, we talk about how hard doing daily bundle update by hand and how Tachikoma solves it. We also introduce real world use case of Tachikoma.
* At RubyKaigi2013, Kensuke Nagae talked about the method of daily bundle update automation. Tachikoma is inspired by this idea.
* Actually, Tachikoma does "reduction of labor". We consider full-automation is dangerous. We believe that it is good to make final judgement by human. Pull request is the best checkpoint, so we designed Tachikoma to fit it.
* If we have spare time, we talk about the future plan of Tachikoma, for example "Tachikoma as a Service" or adding some features.

こんにち Ruby なウェブアプリは Bundler で gem を管理するが、アップデート作業はおそろかにされがちだ。

Rails にせよ他の gem にせよ、最先端に追随し続けるとコミュニティによる成果をいち早く享受できて得だし、どうせいずれアップデートするのだからこまめにやったほうが苦痛も少ない。

そこで我々は日々の bundle update を自動化するツール Tachikoma を作った。このトークでは手作業による日々の bundle update にまつわる困難と、 Tachikoma がいかにそれを解決するかについて説明する。実際の導入事例も紹介する。


  • RubyKaigi2013 で **** という発表をした
  • その要旨は以下のようなものであった
  • RubyKaigi2013 の時点では Jenkins と PR を利用した事例を proof of concept として紹介したが、万人にお勧めできるものではなかった

テストは travis, カバレッジは coveralls
missing piece をうめる存在


  • 何が問題なのか?動機、 living on the edge が一番低コストだが気合いが必要
    • 時代のさいせんたーん
    • laziness
  • みんなやってること、やりたいこと(共感)うまくできない(意識が低まると続かない)
  • なので、誰でも簡単にできる tachikoma つくったよー
  • real world tachikoma (実際使ってるよー)
