Use Argos with GitLab CI
Configure GitLab CI to send screenshots to Argos visual testing platform.
Install the @argos-cli package from npm:
npm i --save-dev @argos-cli
ARGOS_TOKEN as CI secret
Argos uses a token called
ARGOS_TOKEN to identify to which repository the screenshots you send are related to.
Step 1: Get the token value
On Argos, go to the repository you want to set and click on the "settings" tab. Store the ARGOS_TOKEN value.
Step 2: Create a secret in your CI
In your GitLab repository, go to Settings > CI/CD and then expand the Variables section. Set the
ARGOS_TOKENas an environment variable and paste the value you stored in the previous step.
If you are not comfortable with storing secret, read Gitlab CI documentation about adding a CI/CD variable to a project.
3. Upload the screenshots
Add the following command to your CI workflow to upload screenshots to Argos:
npx @argos-ci/cli upload ./screenshots
# 👉 Insert the steps required to take screenshots
# Upload screenshots to argos-ci.com
- npx @argos-ci/cli upload ./screenshots
Congratulations, now that Argos is installed, your app screenshots will be uploaded to Argos by your CI. You are ready to start the visual testing routine!
