Hi to everyone.
Hope you all have a happy holiday time at the end of the year -
different countries different celebrations, but good will to all.
Hope 2021 is properous for you all too.
About continuous testing. I have recently taken on the maintenance of
The Travis-CI setup was constructed a while ago and tested both OSX and
Linux, but not Windows.
It was failing for OSX and for one of the Linux environments.
So I have changed it to the minimal docker image provided by JJ - kudos
However, that required a removal of OSX - bad.
In addition, GTK::Simple is difficult to install on Windows, so I'll
need help there, but I would like to know how test a module for Windows
For clarity, I last used a Mac in the naughties, and stopped using
Windows as soon as I could get what I needed from Linux. So basically, I
have minimal recent knowledge of these environments.
I have two questions:
a) Could any one provide me with a CI scheme that would cover Linux /
OSX / Windows?
Not necessarily on the same server environment.
There is an issue in GTK::Simple to the effect that it would be better
to use github Actions instead of Travis-CI et al. A comment on this
theme would help.
b) Is there a reasonable link to a blog/tutorial on CI ?
I think that there should be some basic information on CI in the Raku
documentation on Modules. If anyone answers q1 for me, then I'll write
up the scheme I adopt for the Modules documentation together with a link
to better information.
When I have asked this question before, I haven't had much response.
Either I have had answers that assume everyone know about CI, or most
often I get a response that the answerer just copies/pastes
configurations from other modules.
Whilst CI is not a part of Raku, a basic CI scheme that could be adopted
by all Module writers would enhance the robustness of the Raku module
