Drone

Assembla git support

One of the applications I have for drone is to use git repositories from Assembla. Has anyone ever used drone with assembla. If not, what is involved in making this connection?

Also, has there been any thought to supporting a simpler git configuration where you simply give it a list of repos, and drone can make the connections without going through a tight integration with webhook callbacks, etc. There are obvious disadvantages as drone would have to poll for git changes.

Drone outsources everything to the source control management system, including authentication, authorization, access control, webhooks, etc. This would require non-trivial modifications to Drone which would have an estimated development costs (e.g. costing tens of thousands of dollars of development time). There would need to be adequate demand for a such a feature and we would need a financial sponsor to pay for initial development and ongoing maintenance and support … it is otherwise very possible.

makes sense. Looking at go-scm, looks like it would be a bit of work adding assembla support as well – assuming they have the needed auth/webhook support …
