Me: *Installs travis*
Dev: oh what's travis?
Me: it's a continuous integration tool I wanna setup.
Dev: ... contin.... ?
Me: continuous integration, a tool that performs builds.
Dev: ah!, is it the new version of that deprecated tool we were using "client access"?
Me: ... no ... that's an authentication service that generates and stores oauth tokens. This is the continuous integration tool I told you about yesterday (and last week and the week before).
Dev: ... contin....
Me: ... con ........ continuous integration. It listens to branches on GitHub, downloads, builds, tests and then deploys the code.
Dev: ah ok ok, cool.
I would bet my monthly fucking salary he can not repeat what I said, tell me what oauth is, or explain what he's working on at the minute.
Jesus at this rate I'd bet my salary he can't tell me my name.7
Pushed my first own open source project to Pypi as a python package.
Used tox and travis for the first time.
Feeling proud and super content 😊.
I'm in the process of creating another open source package, which has as dependency the first one 😅.
I love Python.6
Do Travis CI's email subjects really need to say "Still failing". As if I don't feel bad enough.
Fuck you Travis i'm trying!!!1
Gitlab's CI/CD, Jenkins, TeamCity, Travis, Bamboo,.....
Fuck it, I'm too lazy to learn them all to pick the best choice for my case.
Today, I suddenly received a "build error" email for master on a project that I am working on with my grp.
So I panicked and opened the log to see who messed up. This is what I see
someone pushes code and breaks ci.
me: you broke the build
her: (ignoring the explicit error message) it works on my machine, travis is broken
me: it doesn't even work on my machine!
her: I forgot to push one file, sorry.1
I've been doing wrong these last year, so I decided to step up my game, implementing on my work cycle:
It feels fucking great. If you're not doing it, it's time.1
*Makes a small change in Webpack generator for Eclipse Theia*
*Takes 10 minutes to complete all tests*
*Travis CI builds*
*Takes 30+ minutes*
Uh, Travis, you okay?
I work for a small company with about 10 employees working full-time in the office. We all report directly to the CEO, Phil. When the pandemic hit, Phil went into full panic mode and had us all move our desks 12+ feet apart, wash our hands every 20 minutes, sterilize everything in between uses, etc. Nothing super weird, and better than having no reaction at all, but it was a hypervigilant process that made me expect him to be very accommodating when our state went on lockdown.
Boy, was I wrong. Our industry is considered essential so we’re still open, but Phil is being odd when it comes to working from home. For background, about 95% of our work can be done remotely. The other 5% would require about 15 minutes in the office once a week. I was the first one to pose the idea of working from home and Phil nervously agreed, but only let do it three days a week. My coworkers were given similar instructions but were “encouraged to come in every day, if possible.” A few of them do.
Since then, Phil has gotten pretty weird about the situation. He refers to people who are working from home as being “off work” (which is NOT the case, we are all working and available while at home, which he knows because he calls us for work-related things during work hours!). Today, Phil asked me if my coworker Travis was in his office, and I said Travis was working from home, and Phil replied in a sour tone, “So he’s not working then, great.” He has made similar comments about my other coworkers. When I’m working from home, he’ll call me and ask in a sarcastic tone, “What are you even working on today?” Or he’ll give me an assignment and end with, “Can you actually do work on this today? I need you working.” One time, he called while I was in the bathroom and when I called him back less than five minutes later, I was told that I “need to be available and not screwing around.”
The weirdest thing is that none of us has had productivity problems! My job is such that I can tell when anyone is slacking even a little and I haven’t noticed any issues. Personally, I’ve actually been MORE productive! And I’ve never been accused of “screwing around” while at the office before, so this attitude has baffled me.
He is so convinced that we aren’t working that he cut our work-from-home time down two days a couple weeks ago, and now it’s being cut down to one day as of next week – when COVID cases are higher in our city than ever!
My guess is that because Phil isn’t physically seeing us work, he assumes we aren’t working. CCing him on stuff to leave “proof” doesn’t work because he doesn’t read his email. He is also naturally a nightmare of a micromanager (and an across-the-office yeller) so not being as “in control” is probably freaking him out. But what is the best way to handle this?11

Setting up CI.
Right now it took me AT LEAST A FULL DAY TO GET IT RIGHT.
Started my new job as a devops engineer, its been al month and i have never seen the seen of aws console or travis ci, dont even have credentials for any company cloud services.
I guess i should change my job title to backend dev1
Unicode support pl0x.
So I had an Windows account with AzureAD, and my real name has "ő" and "ó" in it, and software that did not support Unicde started flipping the fuck out.
I was intially going with junctioning every bullshit corrupted user folder name that showed up in the ENOENTs to my real user folder, but that didn't solve it for a couple of software.
I was trying to share my drives with Docker, but the same shit occurred. No error message, it just didn't work. I ended up creating a new user account for Docker to share the drive with.
I was trying to use the Travis CLI to set up releases, etc., but it replaced the "ő" with "?". Y U DO THAT?! Common knowledge is that "?" and other special characters cannot be in entity names. SO WHY DO YOU REPLACE THE UNKNOWN CHARACTER IN A PATH WITH THAT? And it wasn't a character not found character either! It was just a straight question mark.
I ended up creating a new user account because I couldn't change the name of the current one because fuck AzureAD, and Windows just decided to FUCKING TRASH MY ACCOUNT. I went over to the new one, copied over some files from the old one, tried to go back to the old one to copy env variables, but I noticed that the account has been purged from the registry... At least the files haven't been deleted.
I ended up reinstalling Windows.
After all my frustration, I recommend all companies with a CLI to visit the following website: http://uplz.skiilaa.me/
Automatically generating docs from DocBlock comments, then converting the output to markdown AND publishing it all to GitHub Wiki using travis took me two fucking days!
I'm SO happy with the result now!
I even had to fork and update the composer package I'm using!!!
Here's the link to the wiki:
So, spent half a night setting up Travis CI. Just couldn't understand how CI will improve productivity...? But man when it worked... I wondered why I did not do it early... It even sends notification to my Slack channel...!!3
They said they make their coffee with ****** Arduino !! So I went back to check out the machine. Not what I expected....2
jenkins tests passing but travis failing. now travis passing but jenkins failing, aargh!
more beer needed...
Day 1 with Chromium OS: Inclusion of packages and stuff
Day 2 with Chromium OS: Setting up CI, and realize Azure is fucking gay because their own agents disconnects after 4 hours.
Day 3 with Chromium OS: resolve their shitty problem, now their own agents have no disk space. I blame Google.
Day 4 with Chromium OS: Fix CI in at 10 commits, give up and cry.
Day 5 with Chromium OS: Realized Travis might stood a chance, build time limit reached, now I'm shook.
Day 6 with Chromium OS: Buried myself with endless tabs of Gentoo documentation. Lost count on when's the last time I came out of my room.
Today with Chromium OS: I blame Google for making my life suffer more than the last time I had depression.
Conclusion: Chromium OS is Gentoo with extra steps and I hate it5
You may soon have a new operating system from Google to run on your Raspberry Pi. Details are still extremely sparse, the only description on the GitHub page is “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System)”. But, here’s what we do know:
The new OS, called Fuchsia, will be based on Magenta, which is in turn built on LittleKernel. That means that, surprisingly, Google will not be using a Linux kernel for the new OS but something more like an embedded RTOS. Although Google is targeting embedded systems, the possibility of being able to run it on a desktop has been mentioned, so it may not be too minimalistic.
Google’s Travis Geiselbrecht has named the Raspberry Pi 3 specifically as one system it will run on, and said that it’ll be available soon. But, it seems Google is aiming to make it run on a variety of ARM devices (both 32 bit and 64 bit), as well as 64 bit PCs. This is a direct effort to compete against other commercial embedded operating systems that are currently available, and especially on IoT devices.1
Travis CI will finally allow you to run both open source *and* private repos on travis-ci.com. That's awesome. Does that make your life simpler to manage .org n .com things?
To me this is one of the most interesting topics. I always dream about creating the perfect programming class (not aimed at absolute beginners though, in the end there should be some usable software artifact), because I had to teach myself at least half of the skills I need everyday.
The goal of the class, which has at least to be a semester long, is to be able to create industry-ready software projects with a distributed architecture (i.e. client-server).
The important thing is to have a central theme over the whole class. Which means you should go through the software lifecycle at least once.
Let's say the class consists of 10 Units à ~3 hours (with breaks ofc) and takes place once a week, because that is the absolute minimum time to enable the students to do their homework.
1. Project setup, explanation of the whole toolchain. Init repositories, create SSH keys for github/bitbucket, git crash course (provide a cheat sheet).
Create a hello world web app with $framework. Run the web server, let the students poke around with it. Let them push their projects to their repositories.
The remainder of the lesson is for Q&A, technical problems and so on.
Homework: Read the docs of $framework. Do some commits, just alter the HTML & CSS a bit, give them your personal touch.
For the homework, provide a $chat channel/forum/mailing list or whatever for questions where not only the the teacher should help, but also the students help each other.
2. Setup of CI/Build automation. This is one of the hardest parts for the teacher/uni because the university must provide the necessary hardware for it, which costs money. But the students faces when they see that a push to master automatically triggers a build and deploys it to the right place where they can reach it from the web is priceless.
This is one recurring point over the whole course, as there will be more software artifacts beside the web app, which need to be added to the build process. I do not want to go deeper here, whether you use Jenkins, or Travis or whatev and Ansible or Puppet or whatev for automation. You probably have some docker container set up for this, because this is a very tedious task for initial setup, probably way out of proportion. But in the end there needs to be a running web service for every student which they can reach over a personal URL. Depending on the students interest on the topic it may be also better to setup this already before the first class starts and only introduce them to all the concepts in a theory block and do some more coding in the second half.
Homework: Use $framework to extend your web app. Make it a bit more user interactive with buttons, forms or the like. As we still have no backend here, you can output to alert or something.
3. Create a minimal backend with $backendFramework. Only to have something which speaks with the frontend so you can create API calls going back and forth. Also create a DB, relational or not. Discuss DB schema/model and answer student questions.
Homework: Create a form which gets transformed into JSON and sent to the backend, backend stores the user information in the DB and should also provide a query to view the entry.
4. Introduce mobile apps. As it would probably too much to introduce them both to iOS and Android, something like React Native (or whatever the most popular platform-agnostic framework is then) may come in handy. Do the same as with the minimal web app and add the build artifacts to CI. Also talk about getting software to the app/play store (a common question) and signing apps.
Homework: Use the view API call from the backend to show the data on the mobile. Play around with the mobile project to display it in a nice way.
5. Introduction to refactoring (yes, really), if we are really talking about JS here, mention things like typescript, flow, elm, reason and everything with types which compiles to JS. Types make it so much easier to refactor growing codebases and imho everybody should use it.
Flowtype would make it probably easier to get gradually introduced in the already existing codebase (and it plays nice with react native) but I want to be abstract here, so that is just a suggestion (and 100% typed languages such as ELM or Reason have so much nicer errors).
Also discuss other helpful tools like linters, formatters.
Homework: Introduce types to all your API calls and some important functions.
6. Introduction to (unit) tests. Similar as above.
Homework: Write a unit test for your form.
I currently use Github as my git server and have worked a little bit with Travis. Sadly Travis can't deploy to local network targets and that's why I had the idea to create my own basic CI for the local network: It will be a simple nodejs-app and listens to pushes via Github Webhooks. Then it fetches the code from Github and runs a task runner like Gulp over it and tests it with any nodejs testing framework. Then it deploys the compiled, tested and linted app to the local network. What do you think of this idea?8
What's up guys! Welcome to your first android tutorial for The New Boston, my name is Travis (aka Bucky). If you're watching this video and you don't know what a "Boolean" is... You're an idiot!
Inspiring? This dude!5
Finally came to the point, using mocha, jshint together with Travis CI for some of our coding projects and I freaking love it 👍🏻
But now I have to teach my colleagues, because some of them didn't use it before either (We are mostly a team of students, if you come to the point 'How can you not know about travis and mocha')1
I decided to make some new icons for Atom editor (the launcher/executable ones), because I liked the vscode-icons project.
Made the repo on GitHub and decided to automate making the icons for different OS using Travis CI.
Started writing the Python Script for Travis.
My google queries:
How to generate icons for Linux?
I can use SVG or generate a PNG, many libraries available. 👍👍
How to generate icons for Windows?
Generate PNGs of various sizes and pack in an .ico file. Easy enough
So far so good.
How to generate icons for Mac?
Mac needs a .icns file, a package of PNGs of various sizes. Libraries available but can be done on OSX only. 😫😫
Then I think, what OS does Travis use?
Oh, I can specify macOS in it 😁😁😁
Starts the build 😎😎
Travis doesn't support Python on macOS
Anyone working at CloudKitchens a.k.a company bought by Travis Kalanick after being kicked out of Uber?
Got several interviews next week. Recruiter that I was working with really overhyped everything. From tech to culture.
They want me to do 4 technical interviews (live coding, DSA, home assignment, and something more). Not sure if its worthwhile.7
First time I use Travis CI today :D
(And my first build error ever...)
In combination with Nuxt.js it is so fucking useful for Vue Development. Wow!
I think I've found my new favourite JS Framework.
Had a bit of trouble with Github Pages but I just created a 'source' branch with the source code and a 'master' branch with the deployed site. The reason is that organization sites can only be published from 'master' branch for some reason...
Anyways Travis CI is very useful!3
Finally Travis Kalanick resigns as CEO after all the discrimination going on at Uber. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/06/...=
Did you ever forgot the dot at the very end of docker build command, when the Dockerfile is in the current directory? Best circumstamces when it happens in travis.yml (yeah, forgott a dot here as well) and like always the first build there fails :D
Did ever the first build in a CI worked out for you?1
Dahhhh. Pay for a damn hosted CI server please, like Circle or Travis, so I don't have to maintain this crappy Jenkins instance. More "plugin" updates by default than a crappy wordpress site.
Talking of which. Circle CI has come on leaps and bounds since I last looked at it. So much nicer than Travis. Think this is going to be my de-facto CI solution for open source stuff from now on.10
I love that Travis-CI lets you change all the on site fonts to comic sans, but no dark theme. Maybe if I paid them...
Should I connect my vacuum roboter to Travis CI/Appveyor and let it start cleaning on each successful deploy for a minute?
Just collecting ideas for the time it arrives and I root it :D7
Follow-up to my exp with Travis CI: https://devrant.com/rants/5006826
As my allotted credits are set to expire on December 23, I sent a request for 25k monthly OSS credits to Travis support on December 18.
Mind you this is only half of the credits of their lowest subscription price and I didn't ask for extra CPU, so not much to ask.
While for the previous credit request, I got an answer within 24h, this request has gone unanswered for over 2 working days and I noticed it got labeled with "Priority: low" although I will be unable to continue my OSS work in 2 days.
Let's see whether they plan to really uphold their promise that "they will always support open-source"
Continuous integration makes things easier, but it looks difficult to get started with for a beginner.
I'm going to make a template project for Cpp. And one of my questions is how to use Travis ci to test things with clang 6, on every platform. I was thinking about using a custom docker, but I didn't find a project using this. Is there a problem with it?5
So I was browsing the https://travis-ci.com website and was bothered by the weird gradiants, familiar layout and awkwardly timed animations (normally I only use https://app.travis-ci.com).
I navigated to all their top-level pages and paid attention to the incoherent/ sluggish design (see screenshot). So I got this feeling that it was a cheap-ass Wordpress template purchased from Themeforest and implemented by a webmaster with little to no dev-skills.
Sure enough, I checked the Wappalyzer extension and it is using Wordpress. Compare that to the old https://travis-ci.org which was custom-built on Ember and looks professional.
I'm aware of the negative PR they have generated over the past year but gave them the benefit of doubt and they have been good in their support and credit allotments, but man... that WP site looks so amateurish and marketed to the wrong target group. I don't know maybe I'll be forced to reconsider4
The integration of technologies project I have this year. Not yet finished but I already learned a lot of very cool stuff.
First, I learned a new programming language + framework (Ruby on Rails)
Second, for the first time, I implemented a continuous deployment pipeline with Capistrano and Travis ci.
Third, first time I programmed a Restful API.
And more cool stuff coming up ! :D
I freaking love learning !
Travis CI is so expensive for smaller developers.
I started using it when it was free for open source projects, but now they changed it, and the lowest tier ever is $69.
Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing service, which works exactly as described, but I only need to make like 5 builds a month, but the lowest tier gives me so much more allowance.
I wish they had a cheaper tier for less money. Now I gotta swap service and reconfigure a couple of projects.3
Guys and gals, what's tour opinion on static website generators? Have you ever used one?
The concept kind of intrigues me and I was considering a Hugo + Travis CI stack.7
Does travis was slow for you guys as well today? It felt like the planet was building at the same time.
Travis CI is good. Yup.
Coveralls is good. Agreed.
Appveyor, codeclimate, Jenkins?
Okay, that’s too much. At this rate, no features are gonna get done.
Taht moment when you finally have time for that github project, when you done all your changes requested, and you're proud that your local tests are all green... you commit into that project, you push it real hard , long and passionately deep...
and then i apparently hit travis in the nose... Cause he keeps running for -
Anyone who has worked with travis-ci for building their python project git branch? Seems that my yml is not configured properly and don't know how to create one correctly. The current build error is attached. Any leads are helpful.
Ps: Have not pushed any unit test cases in this project
FYI: deliberately marked branch and stuff in astresik. you can assume it is correct.4
Which CI is best for open source?
TravisCI look pretty promising, GitHub Actions too, but with Travis you can have 3 concurrent jobs on their OpenSource plan.
Just realized a crucial thing when using Node.js together with Travis CI: Be VERY specific when you specify dependencies!!!1
I'm not sure why travis-ci job for node 4 is complaining for something which doesn't exist anymore.
Is it because I'm not using semicolon after 'use strict'? But then it should not work locally and in other travis-ci jobs as well.
travis scott shouldn't have apologized, it was their fault and i don't blame him, he was in the right and i support travis!! and if you blame travis for the deaths at astro world, gosh diggity damn darn you!
but maybe thats just me.
Anyone here experienced with Travis-CI? I am getting this error. Please help me out.
