We, LEMUR Heavy Industries (http://lemurheavy.com), are proud to announce that Coveralls.io is now available for open source projects to start tracking code coverage on project.
WHAT IS COVERALLS.IO?
But first, I’m sure that you are asking, “what is Coveralls?” Well, Coveralls provides constant updates on your project’s automated test coverage. It’s like SimpleCov on steroids. Coveralls works best with Travis CI, but can work with any CI or even locally run tests that pass on the coverage data using the Coveralls API.
SO WHY SHOULD YOU USE IT?
So why did we build this? We think it is important to fight technical debt. If you aren’t covering your projects with test coverage, you’ll never know when a new update breaks an existing feature, so we think that you should be able to let your CI Server do the work in helping you to maintain a well-tested codebase.
Writing tests is just mission-critical for any project, but figuring out where your tests are lacking can be painful. If you’re already running your tests on a continuous integration server, so shouldn’t it be doing the heavy lifting? Coveralls works with your CI server and sifts through your coverage data to find gaps in coverage you didn’t even know you had, before they become a problem.
Coveralls will also help you discover trends in your projects test coverage history. If you’re just running your code coverage locally, you won’t be able to see changes and trends that occur during your entire development cycle. Coveralls lets you inspect every detail of your coverage with unlimited history.
Do you know what your code coverage is?
There might be an entire area of your application that is an apocalyptic hellstorm of bugs just waiting to attack your customers. And their families. Coveralls takes the pain out of tracking your code coverage. Know where you stand with your untested code, see the coverage on a file by file basis so that you can develop with the confidence that your code is covered.
Badges, Badges, Badges
Coveralls lets you show off your test code coverage with the world. Display your coverage percentage like a badge of honor with our — well — Badges of Honor. After your project repository is set up on Coveralls, and your CI integration is set up, you can add a badge to your Github readme (or your website) so that everyone can see just how much blood, sweat, and tears you’ve put into your test suite.
Always free for open source
Coveralls will always be free for open source projects, but if you’d like to track private repos, there will be a release soon that will allow you to do so for a monthly fee.
