Travis CI Tutorial
This is a very short guide to using Travis CI with your GitHub hosted code repository. If you’re new to continuous integration or would like some more information on what Travis CI does, start with Core Concepts for Beginners instead.
To start using Travis CI, make sure you have:
To get started with Travis CI #
Accept the Authorization of Travis CI. You’ll be redirected to GitHub.
Click the green Activate button, and select the repositories you want to use with Travis CI.
.travis.ymlfile to your repository to tell Travis CI what to do.
The following example specifies a Ruby project that should be built with Ruby 2.2 and the latest versions of JRuby.
language: ruby rvm: - 2.2 - jruby
The defaults for Ruby projects are
bundle installto install dependencies, and
raketo build the project.
.travis.ymlfile to git, commit and push, to trigger a Travis CI build:
Travis only runs builds on the commits you push after you’ve added a
Selecting a different programming language #
Use one of these common languages:
Or pick one from the full list.
Selecting infrastructure (optional) #
The best way to determine what infrastructure your build runs on
is to set the
language. If you do this your build runs on the default
infrastructure (with a few exceptions), which is Container Based Ubuntu 14.04.
You can explicitly select the default infrastructure by adding
sudo: false to your
If you need a more customizable environment running in a virtual machine, use the Sudo Enabled infrastructure:
If you have tests that need to run on macOS, or your project uses Swift or Objective-C, use our OS X environment:
You do not necessarily need to use OS X if you develop on a Mac. OS X is required only if you need Swift, Objective-C or other macOS-specific software.
More than running tests #
Travis CI isn’t just for running tests, there are many others things you can do with your code:
