Arch Linux build environment for Travis-CI.

anthraxx and mikkeloscar always upgrade the database and system before installing (#46)
This avoids both, outdated databases if no repositories are
explicitly passed and partial upgrade states whenever installing
any packages without upgrading the whole system before.

arch-travis Travis BuildStatus

arch-travis provides a docker based Arch Linux build environment for Travis-CI builds. It supports a very simple (and limited) configuration based on .travis.yml.


sudo: required

- docker

  - papyros=$repo/$arch
  # pacman packages
  - python
  - perl
  # aur packages
  - go-git
  # packages from papyros repo
  - papyros-shell
  - "./"

- "curl -s | bash"

arch.repos defines a list of custom repositories.

arch.packages defines a list of packages (from official repos or AUR) to be installed before running the build.

arch.script defines a list of scripts to run as part of the build. Anything defined in the arch.script list will run from the base of the repository as a normal user called travis. sudo is available as well as any packages installed in the setup.

script defines the scripts to be run by travis, this is where arch-travis is initialized.

Default packages and repositories

By default the following packages are installed and usable from within the build environment.

The following repositories are enabled by default.

  • core
  • extra
  • community
  • multilib

It is possible to use custom respositories by adding them to the arch.repos section of .travis.yml using the following format:

    - repo-name=

The first repository in the list will be added first in pacman.conf and all custom repositories will be added before the default repositories.


  • Increases build time with about 1-3 min.
  • Doesn't work on travis container-based infrastructure because sudo is required.
  • Limited configuration.
  • Doesn't include base group packages. If you need anything from base just add it to the arch.packages list in .travis.yml.

clang support

The default compiler available in the environment is gcc, if you want to use clang instead just add the following to .travis.yml and arch-travis will export CC=clang in your build:

language: c

compiler: clang
