It is common practice to use some form of Continuous Integration service on projects. There are many benefits to this such as running tests and code linting tools.
Travis CI is the recommended tool for testing with Altis.
A basic Travis configuration is installed automatically that imports the base Altis configuration and your own custom config file from
.config/travis.yml will be merged into the Altis base config using a recursive-merge-append approach.
The base configuration will run the following set up steps:
composer server start
From there the tests you run are up to you. A minimal example of your
.config/travis.yml file might look like the following:
script: - composer dev-tools phpunit
We recommend reading and bookmarking the following:
Because there is a full instance of Altis running in the CI environment this enables the use of end to end testing using tools like the following:
By default builds on Travis will run any time code is pushed to the repository or merged regardless of branch. You can use Travis' conditional builds feature to determine when a build should run. The following configuration examples show how to achieve some common set ups:
# Only run on pull requests if: type = pull_request # Only run on specific branches (and pull requests to those branches) if: branch IN (staging, development) # Combining the above if: type = pull_request AND branch IN (staging, development)
There are many built in values and types of operator you can make use of in your config, as well as setting conditions per stage for multistage builds.
Migrating From An Existing Travis Config
If you already have an existing Travis configuration then follow these steps:
- Compare this file to the one in
- Remove any duplicate items from
- Remove additional PHP versions if you have a PHP version matrix
- Update any phpunit commands to use
composer dev-tools phpunit. If you pass any arguments to
phpunityou must separate them with the options delimiter
composer dev-tools phpunit -- [options]
- Commit these changes to a branch and create a pull request
- Confirm that the build works and tests pass
Please contact support if you require any assistance with migrating.
Overriding The Base Config
If you need to fully override the base config you can remove the line importing
humanmade/altis-dev-tools:travis/altis.yml and committing the change. You can then add your full configuration to
Note: Altis will emit a warning on
composer install or
composer update if the
.travis.yml doesn't match what's expected but no error codes are returned and you can safely ignore this.
When overriding the base Travis config we cannot guarantee functionality within Travis or support any issues you may encounter.
