Retrying a command
Sometimes, commands like
npm install fail due to the intermittent network issues and this affects your build result since the command returns a non-zero exit code.
To avoid this, you can use
shippable_retry in the yml to try the command up to 3 times if it returns a non-zero code.
shippable_retry functionality is available for all default installation commands. You can
also use it for any custom installation from external resources. See examples below for some typical uses of this command.
Retrying npm commands
build: ci: - shippable_retry sudo apt-get update - shippable_retry sudo apt-get install something
Retrying pip commands
build: ci: - shippable_retry pip install
Retrying docker commands
build: pre_ci: - shippable_retry docker pull manishas/sample-node:tag post_ci: #Commit the container only if you want all the artifacts from the CI step - docker commit $SHIPPABLE_CONTAINER_NAME manishas/sample-node:tag - shippable_retry docker push manishas/sample-node:tag
