coveralls-ruby Test Coverage Build Status Gem Version

Coveralls.io was designed with Ruby projects in mind, so we've made it as easy as possible to get started using Coveralls with Ruby and Rails project.

PREREQUISITES

Please note that SimpleCov only supports Ruby 1.9 and later.

INSTALLING THE GEM

You shouldn't need more than a quick change to get your project on Coveralls. Just include coveralls-ruby in your project's Gemfile like so:

# ./Gemfile

gem 'coveralls', require: false

While SimpleCov only supports Ruby 1.9+, using the Coveralls gem will not fail builds on earlier Rubies or other flavors of Ruby.

CONFIGURATION

coveralls-ruby uses an optional .coveralls.yml file at the root level of your repository to configure options.

The option repo_token (found on your repository's page on Coveralls) is used to specify which project on Coveralls your project maps to.

Another important configuration option is service_name, which indicates your CI service and allows you to specify where Coveralls should look to find additional information about your builds. This can be any string, but using the appropriate string for your service may allow Coveralls to perform service-specific actions like fetching branch data and commenting on pull requests.

Example: A .coveralls.yml file configured for Travis Pro:

service_name: travis-pro

Example: Passing repo_token from the command line:

COVERALLS_REPO_TOKEN=asdfasdf bundle exec rspec spec

TEST SUITE SETUP

After configuration, the next step is to add coveralls-ruby to your test suite.

For a Ruby app:

# ./spec/spec_helper.rb
# ./test/test_helper.rb
# ..etc..

require 'coveralls'
Coveralls.wear!

For a Rails app:

require 'coveralls'
Coveralls.wear!('rails')

Note: The Coveralls.wear! must occur before any of your application code is required, so it should be at the very top of your spec_helper.rb, test_helper.rb, or env.rb, etc.

And holy moly, you're done!

Next time your project is built on CI, SimpleCov will dial up Coveralls.io and send the hot details on your code coverage.

SIMPLECOV CUSTOMIZATION

"But wait!" you're saying, "I already use SimpleCov, and I have some custom settings! Are you really just overriding everything I've already set up?"

Good news, just use this gem's SimpleCov formatter directly:

require 'simplecov'
require 'coveralls'

SimpleCov.formatter = Coveralls::SimpleCov::Formatter
SimpleCov.start do
  add_filter 'app/secrets'
end

Or alongside another formatter, like so:

require 'simplecov'
require 'coveralls'

SimpleCov.formatters = [
  SimpleCov::Formatter::HTMLFormatter,
  Coveralls::SimpleCov::Formatter
]
SimpleCov.start

MERGING MULTIPLE TEST SUITES

If you're using more than one test suite and want the coverage results to be merged, use Coveralls.wear_merged! instead of Coveralls.wear!.

Or, if you're using Coveralls alongside another SimpleCov formatter, simply omit the Coveralls formatter, then add the rake task coveralls:push to your Rakefile as a dependency to your testing task, like so:

require 'coveralls/rake/task'
Coveralls::RakeTask.new
task :test_with_coveralls => [:spec, :features, 'coveralls:push']

This will prevent Coveralls from sending coverage data after each individual suite, instead waiting until SimpleCov has merged the results, which are then posted to Coveralls.io.

Unless you've added coveralls:push to your default rake task, your build command will need to be updated on your CI to reflect this, for example:

bundle exec rake :test_with_coveralls

MANUAL BUILDS VIA CLI

coveralls-ruby also allows you to upload coverage data manually by running your test suite locally.

To do this with RSpec, just type bundle exec coveralls push in your project directory.

This will run RSpec and upload the coverage data to Coveralls.io as a one-off build, passing along any configuration options specified in .coveralls.yml.
