Continuous integration can be addictive

After praising the romantic structure of the Perl testers grid, last week I started using Travis CI:

Travis CI is a hosted continuous integration service used to build and test software projects hosted at GitHub.

To get started you just need to prepare the configuration file, called .travisci.yml, in your GitHub repository, and specify the range of hosts and tests that you plan. For a Perl module this can be as simple as:

language: perl
  - "5.14"
  - "5.16"
  - "5.18"
  - "5.22"
  - "5.26"
  - "5.28"
  - "5.30"
sudo: false
  - "source ./"
script: "dzil test --verbose"

When you connect your repository to GitHub, you’ll be then gifted with a full test at every single commit.
