Choosing Julia versions to test against #
Julia workers on Travis CI download and install a binary of Julia. You can specify
the Julia versions to test in the
julia: key in your
.travis.yml file. For example:
language: julia julia: - nightly - 0.7 - 0.6.4
Acceptable formats are:
nightlywill test against the latest nightly build of Julia.
X.Ywill test against the latest release for that minor version.
X.Y.Zwill test against that exact version.
The oldest versions for which binaries are available is 0.3.1 for Linux, or 0.2.0 for OS X.
Services such as codecov.io and coveralls.io provide summaries and analytics of the coverage of the test suite. After enabling the respective services for the repositories, the
coveralls options can be used, e.g.
codecov: true coveralls: true
which will then upload the coverage statistics upon successful completion of the tets.
Default Build and Test Script #
If your repository contains
Project.toml file, and you are
building on Julia v0.7 or later, the default build script will be:
using Pkg Pkg.build() Pkg.test()
Otherwise it will use the older form:
if VERSION >= v"0.7.0-DEV.5183" using Pkg end Pkg.clone(pwd()) Pkg.build("$pkgname") Pkg.test("$pkgname", coverage=true)
where the package name
$pkgname is the repository name, with any trailing
Dependency Management #
If your Julia package has a
deps/build.jl file, then
will run that file to install any dependencies of the package. If you need
to manually install any dependencies that are not handled by
it is possible to specify a custom dependency installation command as described
in the general build configuration guide.
Build Matrix #
For Julia projects,
julia can be given as arrays
to construct a build matrix.
