Having automated tests and CI is very good for the overall health of a project.
circleci provides a usable few plan, which is awesome! I set up my phoenix project using it. It is actually pretty straight forward to setup circle ci. Just add the following file to your repository:
version: 2 jobs: build: environment: - MIX_ENV: test - DW_DROPBOX_APP_KEY: dummy - DW_DROPBOX_APP_SECRET: secret working_directory: ~/dw docker: - image: elixir:1.4.4 - image: postgres:9.4.1 environment: POSTGRES_USER: ubuntu steps: - checkout - run: mix local.hex --force - run: mix local.rebar --force - run: mix deps.get - run: mix ecto.create - run: mix test
Adding this file is all you need to have circle ci build your projects on every git push to bitbucket/github.
