I've been trying to get Travis CI to work with my distribution for a while. Recently I found this article that offered the right solution.
The solution is to use perl-travis-helper. I'd tried this before but with no success. The problem at that time was because I was trying to run it in
auto mode, which doesn't handle Dzil.
Here's how my
.travis.yml file looks like:
language: perl perl: - "5.20" - "5.18" - "5.16" - "5.14" - "5.12" - "5.10" before_install: - git clone git://github.com/haarg/perl-travis-helper - source perl-travis-helper/init - build-perl - perl -V - build-dist - cd $BUILD_DIR install: - cpanm --quiet --notest --installdeps .
The trick here is in the line
build-dist for handling Dzil setups with all of its dependencies.
Next, I could add coverage testing with a few more lines.
install: - export RELEASE_TESTING=1 AUTOMATED_TESTING=1 AUTHOR_TESTING=1 HARNESS_OPTIONS=c HARNESS_TIMER=1 - cpanm --quiet --notest Devel::Cover::Report::Coveralls - cpanm --quiet --notest --installdeps . - cpanm --quiet --notest --with-develop . script: - PERL5OPT=-MDevel::Cover=-coverage,statement,branch,condition,path,subroutine prove -lrsv t - cover after_success: - cover -report coveralls
I also had to install suggested dependencies for running my author tests, which could be done with the
--with-develop option for
