Example Perl Pipeline

This guide covers configuring continuous integration pipelines for Perl projects. If you’re new to Drone please read our Tutorial and build configuration guides first.

Build and Test

In the below example we demonstrate a pipeline that installs the project dependnecies using cpanm, and then executes the project unit tests. These commands are executed inside a Docker container, downloaded at runtime from DockerHub.

kind: pipeline
name: default

- name: test
  image: perl
  - cpanm --quiet --installdeps --notest .
  - perl Build.PL
  - ./Build test

Please note that you can use any Docker image in your pipeline from any Docker registry. You can use the official perl images, or your can bring your own.
