Automate testing for your Laravel Application using Travis-CI

Automate testing for you Laravel application using Travis CI. As an example I will be using a repository containing test case for an API

If you would like to watch me doing it then you can watch the tutorial here:

Let’s start.

First thing we need to do is create an account on Travis-CI.

If your application is open source then you can use which is completely free for Open Source Projects.

For private repositories you can use

Create a new account on Travis-CI. It will ask you for access to your GitHub repository for first time.

We have to follow these two steps here:

  1. Activate the repository for which we want to automate testing.
  2. Create a new configuration file .travis.yml inside our repository for Travis-CI.

To activate repository, go to settings and then click on the toggle for that repository.



Create a new file .travis.yml Inside your project repository folder

That’s it, Add this file to git, commit your code and push it into the repository.

As soon as we do that, after few seconds, our test cases starts running here for both versions of php.

And after some time as we can see all test cases are done.
