[Ruby] Learn Digdag from the official Digdag documentation-Getting started

1 minute read

About #Digdag Digdag is an Open Source multi-cloud workflow engine. To put it simply, I thought it would be a tool to help with the flow of processing some work in order.


Since there is no book about Digdag, I would like to organize it into Qiita while translating the documentation on the official Digdag website. http://docs.digdag.io/getting_started.html The documentation is in English. I think that there is a mistranslation because my purpose is to study. Today we’ll start with the Getting Started part. My final goal is to make a batch in Rails using Digdag’s Ruby.

Getting started

1. Download and install the latest version of Digdag

Digdag is an executable file. You can put a file in ~/bin using the ```curl


$ curl -o ~/bin/digdag –create-dirs -L “https://dl.digdag.io/digdag-latest” $ chmod +x ~/bin/digdag $ echo’export PATH=”$HOME/bin:$PATH”’ » ~/.bashrc $ source ~/.bashrc

If you can execute ```digdag --help
#### **`, the environment setup is completed.`**

Those who use zsh should change ~/.bashrc to ```~/.zshrc



PowerShell -Command “& {[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::TLS12; mkdir -Force $env:USERPROFILE\bin; Invoke-WebRequest http://dl.digdag.io/digdag-latest .jar -OutFile $env:USERPROFILE\bin\digdag.bat}”


### 2. Try running the sample
The ```digdag init <dir>
#### **` command creates a sample Workflow.`**
$ digdag init mydag
$ cd mydag
$ digdag run

The following sample code (mydag.dig) is generated by the digdag init mydag command

  echo>: start ${session_time}

  echo>: ${moment(session_time).utc().format('YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss Z')}

    order: [first, second, third]
    animal: [dog, cat]
    echo>: ${order} ${animal}
  _parallel: true

  echo>: finish ${session_time}
