  4. Agenda Introduction Properties Advanced • Motivation • How it works

    • File Format • Demo • Variables • Conditionals • Builtin functions • Includes • Defining Functions • Automatic Variables • Caveats • Other directory • Use cases
  5. Introduction

  6. • Automation • Simplicity • Learning curve • Getting Started

    • Almost no dependencies Motivation
  7. • Program make zypper install make apk add make apt-get

    install make • A Makefile The file which make reads in order to execute rules How it work $> make build
  8. By the original definition make is: “The make utility automatically

    determines which pieces of a large program need to be recompiled, and issues commands to recompile them.” How it work $> make what Overview
  9. $> make build Building docker image Sending build context to

    Docker daemon 73.73kB Step 1/4 : FROM golang:1.14-alpine ---> 30df784d6206 Step 2/4 : COPY src /app ---> 5fa423e5e748 Step 3/4 : WORKDIR /app ---> Running in 3a969fe98be8 Removing intermediate container 3a969fe98be8 ---> 3a59a136b09c Step 4/4 : CMD go run main.go ---> Running in 49907a2f877a Removing intermediate container 49907a2f877a ---> 14ec4f19142c Successfully built 14ec4f19142c Successfully tagged makefile:latest How it work $> make build Overview
  10. make rules File format Rule Shape

  11. target: dependency command File format Rule Shape

  12. • target Action to be executed by the rule •

    dependencies Needed to exist to satisfy the target • commands Sequence of commands to be executed File format
  13. target..: dependency.. command.. .. File format Rule Shape

  40. Use cases # .travis.yml sudo: required language: cpp services: -

    docker before_install: - make start script: - make test
  41. Use cases # DRY - Don’t Repeat Yourself # CI/CD

    Pipeline execution chain pipeline: pep8 check_openapi check_k8s unit_test integration_test acceptance_test # Deploy application to production deploy: cloud_auth build_img push_img migrate_db patch @kubectl rollout status deployment $(DEPLOYMENT_NAME) @kubectl apply -f $(K8S_DIR)/deployment.yaml
  42. Use cases # Getting started In order to have the

    project running locally you can just run as follows: ```bash $> make setup ``` > It will install all project dependencies and > and run application using containers You can check if everything is OK by running the tests: ```bash $> make test ``` If everything went well, please refer to the and start contributing to the Project!
  43. Use cases Kubernetes Python language NodeJS BusyBox Docker CLI Prometheus
