Smolder - continuous integration smoke server
Smolder is a web-based continuous integration smoke server. It's a central repository for you smoke tests for multiple public and private repositories.
Please see Smolder::Manual for how to use it.
- Self contained web application Smolder has its own built-in HTTP server (Net::Server) and database (SQLite).
- Standard Format Smolder uses TAP and TAP Archives as its reporting format. See Smolder::Manual for more details.
- Multiple Notification Channels Smolder can notifiy you of new or failing tests either by email or Atom data feeds.
- Public and Private Projects Use Smolder for your public open source projects, or for you private work related projects. Smolder can host multiple projects of each type.
- Project Graphs Smolder has graphs to help you visualize the changes to your test suite over time. See how the number of tests has grown or find patterns in your failing tests.
- Smoke Report Organization You can organize your smoke reports by platform, architecture or any tag you want. This makes it easy to see how your project is doing on multiple platforms, or with different configurations.
From the CPAN, using the traditional CPAN shell:
$ cpan Smolder
or using cpanminus:
$ cpanm --sudo --skip-satisfied Smolder
From the sources:
$ git clone https://github.com/Smolder/smolder.git $ perl Build.PL $ ./Build test $ sudo ./Build install
A good practice is to create a dedicated
smolder user account.
Then create a directory where to store your smoker data, and create a configuration file:
HostName smoker.example.com Port 21234 FromAddress email@example.com DataDir /home/smolder/main PidFile /home/smolder/main/smolder.pid LogFile /home/smolder/main/smolder.log
Run the daemon:
$ smolder --daemon --conf /home/smolder/main/smolder.conf
Now you can submit reports by executing your tests using the
option of the
$ prove --archive test_run.tar.gz
and send them using the provided
$ smolder_smoke_signal --server smoker.example.com --port 21234 \ --username smokebot --password s33kret \ --project MyProject --file test_run.tar.gz
Again, see Smolder::Manual for more details.
