Day 11: CI for wp2txt Ruby project

After the success yesterday adding CI to a Ruby Gem I thought I can give another try to more Ruby Gems so I looked at the Ruby Digger. As I can see there is even less action there than on CPAN Digger for Perl.

Error reports

First I looked at a project called nezekan. I tried to run the tests locally, but failed.
I am not sure if I was even trying to run them as the authors intended, but this error seem to be genuine. It is a case-sensitivity issue. After I fixed that locally I bumped into and reported another issue.

Only now, that I am writing this I realized that the project had a Travis-CI configuration file. Although Travis-CI does not provide the free service any more I could have looked at the configuration file and base my commands on that. I can get back to that later.


After a while I found the wp2txt project. Adding GitHub Actions to this was quite simple though it was different from the previous one. Here is the pull-request
and below you'll find a copy of the configuration file as I sent it.

GitHub Actions

name: CI

    - cron: '42 5 * * *'

      fail-fast: false
        ruby: [ '3.1' ]

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    name: Ruby ${{matrix.ruby}}
    container: ruby:${{matrix.ruby}}

    - uses: actions/checkout@v3

    - name: Show Ruby Version
      run: ruby -v

    - name: Install dependencies
      run: bundle install

    - name: Install rspec
      run: gem install rspec

    - name: Run tests
      run: rspec
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


Slowly, but I learn how to run the tests in the various Ruby projects as well. Unfortunately there are not very many new uploads to RubyGems
and this Ruby Digger is growing slowly.

Just kidding, it's a personal preference. But you can change your theme, font, etc. in your settings.
