Daily acceptance tests for Jekyll. Builds 10 complex websites.
Jekyll is a static site generator
written in Ruby. Any actively-developed software project needs to be
regularly tested. To this end, Jekyll runs unit tests and integration tests
for every pull request and push to
master. Beyond this, Jekyll is tested
by adventurous users who build their site with pre-releases or from
master. Often, these real-world site builds uncover bugs that the unit &
integration tests miss. So I asked myself, "what if we built regularly
against a hand-picked set of Jekyll sites?"
Acceptance testing is a new concept from agile programming. In our case,
we're going to use it to mean real-world testing with user-created input.
We have a curated list of 10 sites (located in
script/cibuild) that get
built with the latest
master each night. If something starts breaking,
I'll get an email.
