Launchpad deployment

Travis CI can get Launchpad to automatically import your code from GitHub after a successful build, which is useful if you are building and hosting Debian packages.

To automatically trigger an import:

  1. Register a project on Launchpad and then import your GitHub project there.
  2. Generate an API access token that we can use to trigger a new code import. Please make sure that the oauth_consumer_key is set to Travis Deploy.
  3. Add the following to your .travis.yml
deploy:
  provider: launchpad
  slug: "LAUNCHPAD PROJECT SLUG"
  oauth_token: "YOUR OAUTH_TOKEN"
  oauth_token_secret: "YOUR OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET"

It is recommended to encrypt both your oauth_token and your oauth_token_secret.

The slug contains user or team name, project name, and branch name, and is formatted like ~user-name/project-name/branch-name. You can find your project’s slug in the header (and the url) of its code.launchpad.net page.

Launchpad slug

Encrypting your OAUTH tokens

It is recommended that you encrypt both OAUTH tokens using the Travis CI command line client by removing them from your travis.yml above and running the following commands:

$ travis encrypt TOKEN="YOUR OAUTH_TOKEN" --add deploy.oauth_token
$ travis encrypt TOKEN_SECRET="YOUR OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET" --add deploy.oauth_token_secret

The resulting .travis.yml looks like this:

deploy:
  provider: launchpad
  slug: "LAUNCHPAD PROJECT SLUG"
  oauth_token:
