Running Commands Conditionally¶
If you would like to run a command conditionally, you can make either use of shell scripting, or use one of our built-in
build: nodes: some-node: dependencies: before: - command: 'wget http://some/thing.tar.gz -O thing.tar.gz && tar -xzf thing.tar.gz' not_if: 'test -e thing' cache: directories: - 'thing'
In the above example, the file will be downloaded and extracted to a local directory only if that directory does not exist, yet. This for example makes sense if you want to cache certain tasks between your builds.
