CI Builds#

CI builds are done with Earthly it bulids and tests using buildkit (either docker or podman containers), once it is installed, you can list the build targets like this:

% earthly ls

All the targets with the format test-libgit2-<version>-<lisp> can be executed to test that version combination.

To run a build you would use a command like:

earthly +test-libgit2-1.5-sbcl

Currently SBCL is the only working Lisp, but others are there in case we want to extend our support to them.


To build the documentation you need sphinxcontrib.cldomain which depends on:

build documentation:


The compiled documentation is output into doc/build/html.
