Travis CI runs your program's tests every time you commit to GitHub. you can easily discover your code breaks. setting up Travis-ci is very easy.

To run tests in Travis you have to create ".travis.yml" file in root directory.

.travis.yml file for Django application.

    language: python # => 1

    python: # => 2

      - "2.6"

      - "2.7"

    services: # => 3

      - mysql

    env: # => 4

      -DJANGO=1.8 DB=mysql
    install: # => 5

      - pip install -r requirements.txt

    before_script: # => 6

      - mysql -e 'create database test;' -u root
    script: # => 7

      - python manage.py test
