I have a vagrant box, provisioned with Ansible that needs testing on github pull requests. Is it possible to setup CI test suite for the mirror in gitlab-ci without extra expenses on droplets? Or maybe this is something that could be possible with upcoming automation on github? Big fan of travis but looks like they not going to support virtualbox deployment in their containers anytime soon.

You can do via docker, since it's a test. Here is an example repository, both docker and vagrant. https://github.com/jonashackt/gitlab-ci-stack https://blog.codecentric.de/en/2018/05/gitlab-ci-pipeline/

  • Thank you, saw this post before. Good approach, but I was looking to spin tests on gitlab free servers, need to check if I could include these runners in that workflow.
