You can actually configure Code Climate to report test coverage at the end of each Travis build. However, this requires telling Travis about a private token. If you have a publicly visible repository, you might not want to expose this token to the wider world.
Luckily, Travis supports encrypting sensitive information required by your build. Here's how to do it.
Setting up the Travis CLI
You can install the Travis command-line interface with:
gem install travis
The first step is to log in:
The Travis CLI supports multiple accounts. You can see who you are, and which accounts you have access to:
travis accounts travis whoami
Encrypting the Code Climate repo token
Inside Code Climate, under the Test Coverage section of your repository's Settings, you can find your repo token, along with instructions to set up a command similar to this in your CI server:
CODECLIMATE_REPO_TOKEN=3f93bc9f053e7e9… bundle exec rake
First, encrypt the token:
travis encrypt 3f93bc9f053e7e9…
You should see something like this as the output:
Add the following to an
addons section inside your
addons: code_climate: repo_token: secure: "g2pXEX+Ez3…="
Push and enjoy your new code coverage sync to Code Climate.
