WebKit Early Warning System (EWS)

The WebKit Early Warning System is pre-commit testing infrastructure, designed to help catch build/test failures before patches are committed into WebKit resository. EWS checks every patch posted for review on bugs.webkit.org on various OSes (e.g. macOS, iOS, Linux, Windows), using various test suites (e.g.: layout tests, API tests, webkitperl tests, webkitpy tests, jsc tests etc.) in various configurations (e.g.: Debug, Release).

EWS consists of two servers:

1) ews-build: This is a Buildbot server. It processes the builds.

2) ews-app: This is a Django based web-app and coordinates between Bugzilla and Buildbot. It retrieves patches from bugzilla and submits them to Buildbot for processing. It also receives results from Buildbot, and display them in status-bubble.

Adding a new EWS Bot

Anyone can add a new EWS bot. Follow these steps to add a new EWS bot:

  • Install buildbot-worker package on the bot (e.g.: sudo pip install buildbot-worker==1.8.2) and point it to ews-build.webkit.org:17000
  • Submit a patch adding the bot to config.json appropriately, and get it reviewed and landed.
  • email admin@webkit.org to request restart/reconfig of the Buildbot server.

Adding a new EWS Queue

Add a new Builder to the Buildbot configuration appropriately in the source code. Then email admin@webkit.org to request restart/reconfig of the Buildbot server.
