New Ruby Convenience Image Public Beta

Hey Everyone,

For those who don’t know, we at CircleCI maintain a fleet of Docker images, which we call Convenience Images, for various languages and databases. These images are designed to run your CI environment.

The Docker build system we are using is old and complicated so we’ve been designing a new suite of images. This of course includes a new Ruby image.

If you’re already using CircleCI to build/test/deploy your Ruby project (or want to), we’d love it if you could try out our new image. The image is cimg/ruby with the tag being a Ruby version such as 2.6.5 or 2.5.

It’s all open source so you can find the GitHub repo here and the Docker Hub repo here.

We’re looking to:

  1. Provide a Ruby Docker image useful for CI.
  2. Get feedback on if this image is working for your project or if it’s missing something or doing something “wrong” in your opinion.
  3. Get feedback on how this image is working for you if you’re coming from our legacy image, circleci/ruby.

Any questions, please let me know, thanks!
