I believe there is something I am fundamentally not understanding about the pipeline + services model of the drone file. Can someone clarify this for me?
My expectation is that, given a compose file that already has services in it, I really already have what I need for my drone file. However, it seems that drone requires a pipeline. It is not clear to me why a pipeline is required if all I want to do is to deploy services. That is to say, I have no preliminary code compilation, testing, etc.
Nevertheless, in an effort to just get things running, since I could not find a way to have an empty pipeline, I setup a pipeline that just does a minimal sleep. Yet, my services are not being deployed.
All of this adds up to me thinking there is something I do not understand about what I should be doing in the pipeline in order for the services section to be run. The docs make it seem as though services should just happen. What am I not understanding?
