Build and test your software projects automatically
I wanted that cool build passed badge for my projects as I have seen at Github.
So I had a look at Travis CI, which is a continuous integration service used to build and test software projects. Let’s have a look at the build file.
That’s it. I tried Travis with one of mine projects. I use gradle as a build tool.
Build errror!? Why? ./gradlew assemble doesn’t work? Mmmh, okay that’s right. I didn’t used that logging library.
Build failed. Again. What? The integration test failed? I did a really small change. I thought that change couldn’t break the test. False! I commited and pushed the changed without testing.
Unbelievable, I needed more than 3 attempts. Finally, my github project was built successfully with Travis. Now my current travis file looks like this:
language: java notifications: email: recipients: - firstname.lastname@example.org on_failure: always
For that cool badge I added the following in my README file .
If you like, you can add a lot of other badges, e.g. for code coverage, docs, number of downloads, version or license. Travis CI is cool 🙂
