Continuous Integration

Travis yaml file

CxSystem2 uses Travis CI for continuous integration. The configuration for Travis is available in .travis.yml file in the root folder of the repository. All the details of the Travis yaml file is available here in details.

Most of the used parameters are self-explanatory, e.g. language, os, python. You can install dependencies before_install and install using install keyword. You can run different scripts during the tests. We can run all the tests using pytest tests. This way, all the tests that are subsequently added to the tests folder will be automatically tested in travis.

Encrypted Parameters

One might need some encrypted parameters during the testing process, for instance to run cluster run tests, cluster password is required but cannot be saved in the configuration file in the plain text. Travis provides a command line client that allows us to encrypt parameters and add them to the configuration file. Install the client using:

sudo gem uninstall travis

Then log into the client:

travis login

After logging in and testing it with travis whoami, you can add encrypted parameters to the configuration file:

travis encrypt MY_SECRET_ENV=super_secret --add env.global

This way you can encrypt a value in an environment variable which would be secure on Travis side and use it in the code.
