This page should give you instructions and some ideas on how to use dockware images in Github workflows and pipelines.
Please keep in mind, these might not always be 100% accurate samples, because some things like installing dependencies and so on, might work different in your project. In fact, some of these things are only related to projects, but you should get the idea.
Are we missing something? Just let us know and we'd be happy to add it here!

Cypress Tests

This is a perfect usage for dockware and its pre-installed Shopware version including demo data. Let's assume we have a plugin where we already have some Cypress tests that need a Shopware instance.
We want to run all these tests of our plugin in mutliple Shopware versions within Github.
We start by creating a job with a matrix strategy, where just provide the Shopware versions that we need. In addition to this, we want to test it with different PHP versions.
To avoid a combination of all possibilities, we just create a static list in here, but please feel free to use your own strategy configuration of Github actions!
The real pipeline is started by downloading the correct dockware version of our matrix value. Afterwards we start it with the docker run command and use the HTTPS port 443 as well as our correct PHP version. You can also use any other supported ENV variable in here.
Once started, we just give the container a bit time to launch MySQL and all its services. Usually you use a waitFor approach here, but this does also work really good. In addition to this, we imagine that we must not use https://localhost for our tests, due to some restrictions. So we even have the option to configure a different domain to be used locally within the Github Runner.
Congratulations, your Docker infrastructure with dockware is done!
All we have to do now is to upload the files into our container, and intall and build our plugin as we would usually do.
Once completed, we can install Cypress and start to run the tests against our domain that we have just created for this pipeline.
If everything is done, we make sure to always download the logs and store those within our pipeline. By including the correct name of our shopware version from the matrix, we end up with a single ZIP file with logs and screenshots for all our Shopware versions.
Pro Tip: If you want to see all results of all Shopware versions to detect patterns on problems in specific versions, then it might be a good thing to turn off "fail-fast" in the strategy. The full pipeline will still go on and takes longer even if problems occur, but you'll be rewarded with full results in the end!
