Auto build Launchpad Project on Commit

If you have a project hosted on Canonical’s Launchpad, then you have a choice to build it as soon as you push its Bazaar commit. The automatic build process is conducted by a “recipe”. Cited from official explanation, there are two options for when recipes get built:

Built daily
A build will be scheduled automatically once a change in any of the branches used in the recipe is detected.
Built on request
Builds of the recipe have to be manually requested using the “Request build” action.

You can create a recipe from project page, and look for “Create packaging recipe”. Then you need to choose the “Built daily” option to automatically build the DEB binary from source when you push the commit.

Build recipe Launchpad Canonical Ubuntu
Build recipe Launchpad Canonical Ubuntu

Then you can compose the packaging recipe by refering to the official documentation here: https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/SourceBuilds/Recipes
