Probo can make your life easier if you’re developing your site on Pantheon. There are two steps to follow to configure Probo properly.
Note: You must still have your code in a repository on either GitHub or Bitbucket. Probo will not download the code directly from Pantheon.
Step 1: Create a .sh File
To download a database from your Pantheon site to your Probo container you will need to use Pantheon’s CLI, Terminus, so that we can pass the necessary commands to Probo. However, using Terminus requires that you authenticate with Pantheon first. To protect your security you must create a
terminus.sh file that contains your Pantheon information. It should look like this:
#!/bin/bash EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org" #replace with your email address TOKEN="abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" #replace with your token
Use your Pantheon account email and generate a Pantheon Machine Token for the token.
You will need to upload this file as an asset for your Probo build.
Step 2: Update your .probo.yml file
After you have uploaded your
terminus.sh file containing your authentication info, you need to include it in your
.probo.yml file’s assets and add some steps to download your Pantheon site’s database.
Note: You must download your database to a gzipped file!
Now that Probo has downloaded your site’s database from Pantheon it can continue with other necessary steps to build your site. The Terminus steps also cooperate with Probo’s Drupal plugin. Here’s an example of what that looks like:
Be sure to substitute the name of your Pantheon site for ‘YOURSITE’.
