hoe-travis is a Hoe plugin that allows your gem to gain maximum benefit
from travis-ci.org. The plugin contains
.travis.yml generator and a pre-defined rake task which runs
the tests and ensures your manifest file is correct.
With hoe-travis it is easy to add additional checks. Custom checks can be easily verified locally by simply running a rake task instead of committing and pushing a change, waiting for travis to run your tests, then trying a new commit if you didn’t fix the problem.

If you’re not already using Hoe with your project, see: docs.seattlerb.org/hoe/Hoe.pdf
To get started with hoe-travis, first install it:
sudo gem install hoe-travis
Then add hoe-travis as a plugin to your Rakefile:
Then generate a .travis.yml
$ rake travis:generate
This will bring up your EDITOR with your travis.yml for any desired tweaks. Save the file when you’re done, then check in your .travis.yml. For further details of how the configuration is generated see Setup at Hoe::Travis and Configuration at Hoe::Travis.
(If you don’t have the EDITOR environment variable set to your favorite
editor, please do so. Note that some editors may need extra flags to wait
for files to be edited. For MacVIM,
--remote-wait" will wait for the file to be closed before
If you would like to make future changes to your .travis.yml you can run:
$ rake travis:edit
travis:generate, will bring up your EDITOR with
your .travis.yml. When you’ve saved the file the changes will be checked
by travis-lint before writing back to .travis.yml and give you a chance to
If you’ve edited your .travis.yml by hand you can run:
$ rake travis:check
to check it.
Testing your travis-ci setup is easy with hoe-travis. You can run:
$ rake travis
to run the same checks travis-ci will. By default this includes running the tests and ensuring the Manifest.txt file is complete. There is also the before script:
$ rake travis:before
Which will run the setup tasks needed for your project.
You can also enable and disable travis-ci using
rake travis:disable. See
Setup at Hoe::Travis for details.
