What is Travis CI?

Travis CI hosted a continuous integration service for developing and testing software on GitHub and Bitbucket. Travis CI was the first continuous integration service to offer free services to open-source projects, and it continues to do so. Travis can deploy a proprietary software version on the customer’s hardware. The source code is technically free software, and it’s available on GitHub under permissive licenses in bits and pieces. However, the company reminds us that due to the many tasks that a user must monitor and complete, some users may find it challenging to integrate the Enterprise version with their infrastructure successfully. Travis CI is unquestionably one of the most popular CI/CD tools available. Initially designed for open source projects, it has since expanded to include closed source projects. 

Travis CI, like Jenkins, was one of the first CI/CD tools on the market. The Travis CI community developed and maintains the tool written in Ruby. Travis CI was previously only available for GitHub-hosted projects, but it now supports Bitbucket-hosted projects. It’s compatible with Linux, macOS, and Windows (early stage) systems. Every open-source project can use Travis CI for free. You should have a GitHub or Bitbucket account to use Travis CI. There is no need to install anything; sign up and add a project to get started. Travis CI is created by placing a file named.travis.yml in the repository’s root directory, a YAML format text file. The desired building and testing environment, the programming language used,  and various other parameters are all specified in this file. When Travis CI is enabled for a repository, it will receive notifications from GitHub whenever new commits or pull requests are made to that repository. Travis CI will then check the relevant branch and execute the commands specified in the.travis.yml file, typically including building the software and running any automated tests. Travis notifies the developer(s) in the manner specified in the configuration—for example, by sending an email containing the test results or by posting a message on an IRC channel. The outcome will be annotated along with a link to the build log when it comes to pulling requests, thanks to a GitHub integration. 

Travis CI validates information for role-based access to repositories. It facilitates permissions syncing via lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) or security assertion markup language (SAML). Users can also use Travis CI to manage source code, and scale out custom build infrastructure by integrating it with their existing GitHub enterprise installation. It provides a variety of customizable build environment images for deploying various applications, including languages and other dependencies. Teams can expand their build capacity to test more codes. Travis CI’s multi-node setup and load balancer ensure that hardware failures are not a problem. It can be run on AWS, Google Compute Engine, VMware, OpenStack, and Azure, among other cloud and on-premise environments. It integrates with TravisLight, Team Dashboard, Project Monitor, and other third-party applications. Travis CI connects to your existing version control system and gets you ready to automate build testing and more with minimal up-front effort — gone are the days of having to supply your testing infrastructure! The Travis CI build logs are publicly available for all open source projects. It implies that all we need is a browser to access them. However, because some projects may contain hundreds of logs, manually exploring them is a tedious task that should be automated. Fortunately, the pown toolkit includes a command to automate this process quickly.
