Hoe-travis 1.0 Released

hoe-travis is a Hoe plugin that allows your gem to gain maximum benefit
http://travis-ci.org. The plugin contains a .travis.yml generator and a
pre-defined rake task which runs the tests and ensures your manifest
file is correct.

With hoe-travis it is easy to add additional checks. Custom checks can
easily verified locally by simply running a rake task instead of
and pushing a change, waiting for travis to run your tests, then trying
a new
commit if you didn’t fix the problem.

=== Features

  • .travis.yml generation task
  • Pre-defined rake tasks which are run by travis-ci
  • Easy to hook up rake tasks for additional travis-ci setup or checks

=== Getting Started

If you’re not already using Hoe with your project, see:

To get started with hoe-travis, first install it:

sudo gem install hoe-travis

Then add hoe-travis as a plugin to your Rakefile:

Hoe.plugin :travis

Then generate a .travis.yml

$ rake travis:generate

This will bring up your EDITOR with your travis.yml for any desired
Save the file when you’re done, then check in your .travis.yml. For
details of how the configuration is generated see
module Hoe::Travis - hoe-travis-1.1 Documentation and
module Hoe::Travis - hoe-travis-1.1 Documentation.

(If you don’t have the EDITOR environment variable set to your favorite
editor, please do so. Note that some editors may need extra flags to
wait for
files to be edited. For MacVIM, export EDITOR="mvim --remote-wait" will wait for the file to be closed before returning.)

If you would like to make future changes to your .travis.yml you can

$ rake travis:edit

Which, like rake travis:generate, will bring up your EDITOR with your
.travis.yml. When you’ve saved the file the changes will be checked by
travis-lint before writing back to .travis.yml and give you a chance to
correct them.

If you’ve edited your .travis.yml by hand you can run:

$ rake travis:check

to check it.

Testing your travis-ci setup is easy with hoe-travis. You can run:

$ rake travis

to run the same checks travis-ci will. By default this includes running
tests and ensuring the Manifest.txt file is complete. There is also the
before script:

$ rake travis:before

Which will run the setup tasks needed for your project.

You can also enable and disable travis-ci using rake travis:enable and rake travis:disable. See
module Hoe::Travis - hoe-travis-1.1 Documentation for
