GitLab Pages

Merged Kamil Trzciński requested to merge gitlab-pages into master

Yay! It works!

Key facts:

  • The pages are created when build artifacts for pages job are uploaded
  • Pages serve the content under:
  • Pages can be used to serve the group page, special project named as host:
  • User can provide own 403 and 404 error pages by creating 403.html and 404.html in group page project
  • Pages can be explicitly removed from the project by clicking Remove Pages in Project Settings
  • The size of pages is limited by Application Setting: max pages size, which limits the maximum size of unpacked archive (default: 100MB)
  • The public/ is extracted from artifacts and content is served as static pages
  • Pages asynchronous worker use dd to limit the unpacked tar size
  • Pages needs to be explicitly enabled and domain needs to be specified in gitlab.yml
  • Pages are part of backups
  • Pages notify the deployment status using Commit Status API
  • Pages use a new sidekiq queue: pages
  • Pages use a separate nginx config which needs to be explicitly added

What is missing:

  • The Omnibus changes (I'll do it tomorrow)
  • The proper documentation for Pages in this repo (@axil Can you help?)
  • The blessing of everyone involved
  • @DouweM help with Project Settings page: I put there the GitLab Pages deployed link and remove button
