Travis CI is a continuous integration service used to build and test applications hosted on GitHub. Travis CI supports integration with other tools such as coverage analyzers.
Why use Travis?
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
