Run your BusterJs test with Grunt on TravisCI

Lets asume you run your test locally with grunt-buster. Its very easy to run this test on TravisCI. All you have to do is do configure your package.json correctly so Travis can get all the dependencies that it needs to run grunt, grunt-buster and buster. So your minimal package.json file will look like this:

  "main": "./lib/somefile.js",

  "devDependencies": {
    "buster": "~0.6.0",
    "grunt": "0.3.15",
    "grunt-buster": "~0.1.2"

When Travis starts the test it will call automatically call npm install before it runs the tests. As we defined all our dependencies it will download and install buster,grunt and grunt-buster.

So the minimal grunt file to run buster will look like this:

module.exports = function(grunt) {

    buster: {
      test: {
        config: 'test/buster.js'
      server: {
        port: 1111

With this grunt file we can run the test locally by calling grunt buster and thats same travis should to. So our travis.yml file needs a script block with this single command

  - "grunt buster"

language: node_js

  - 0.6
  - npm install -g grunt-cli

And thats it.

To make this work I had to put buster as a dependency to be installed in the before_script.
