Using Drone CI to build and push images to

As my experimentation with Drone continues, the latest task was to get Docker images building and published to (more on why we're using Quay here).

Drone uses a .drone.yml file to determine what happens in response to a `git push` (or other events). We tend to use the build section (not shown below) for running our tests, and the publish section for actually building and publishing the image from a Dockerfile. Read on for an excerpt from a single-page JS app I helped deploy today.

drone-hipchat released. A HipChat plugin for Drone CI.

Since the Drone CI Plugin Marketplace didn't have one yet, I put together a quick plugin. It's written in Python instead of Go, so it won't ever be in the official plugin namespace, but it also requires substantially less boilerplate than the Go plugins. So we'll run with it because it's simple!

If this interests you, check out the Github repo and the documentation. You should be able to copy/paste that sample YAML and substitute your values. Since all Drone CI plugins are Docker containers, you'll get the benefit of automatic updates if/when I make improvements or fixes in the future.

I'm all ears for feedback, which you are encouraged to send to the issue tracker.
