Clone Git Repositories Into Your Services

When Tugboat runs, it clones your git repository into your default Service. Optionally, you can also clone a copy of your git repository into other Services.

To explicitly request that a Service has access to the git repository, specify the checkout key in the Service definition. This is especially useful if there are Service-specific scripts or test data files committed to your git repository.

    image: tugboatqa/httpd:2.4
    default: true
    image: tugboatqa/mysql:5.6
    checkout: true

In this example, both the apache and mysql services get a clone of the git repository, checked out to the git branch, tag, commit, or pull request that the preview is created for. The path where the git repository is cloned is available in an environment variable named $TUGBOAT_ROOT.
