In the previous video, we created a new GitHub repo and pushed our local code up to the new repository. Finally we test by installing this Node.js Hapi plugin directly from GitHub.

This video picks up where we left off and we configure travis-ci for our repo so that we can get automated build each time we push to GitHub. Errors will be reported to us automatically.


  • Enable travis-ci for repo
  • Trigger build with test hook
  • Push change to run build

  • .travis.yml contains the configuration for Travis-CI
  • Travis runs npm install followed by npm-test to test both the installation of your modules and to run your tests.
  • You may configure the versions of Node.js you want to test your project on
  • By using Travis-CI builds are run on all the configured versions every time you push to GitHub and errors are emailed back to you or you can view in their dashboard.
  • We add the travis-ci image into our README so users can see whether our code is passing tests on all the configured versions of Node.js. The images is also linked so it takes users directly to the Travis-CI dashboard for this project so they can see the history of the project and guage its stability.
