We use the following testing tools:

We strive to provide tests for each pull request that adds new features or fixes a bug. Ideally, we test the functionality of the frontend and the backed.

If you'd like to help us improve our test coverage, we recommend checking out our total coverage and writing tests for selected files based on SimpleCov's test coverage results. You can also check out Code Climate summary which includes the test coverage.

If you're new to writing tests in general or with Rails, we recommend reading about testing with Rails, RSpec, and Capybara first.

Continuous Integration & Continuous Deployment

We are using Travis for CI and CD. Travis will run a build (in an isolated environment for testing) for every push to this repository.

Keep in mind that a passing build does not necessarily mean the project won't run into any issues. Strive to write good tests for the code you wish to contribute.

Travis will deploy your pull request to production after CI passes and a member of the DEV team has approved it.

Our test suite is not perfect and sometimes a re-run is needed.

Please note that you will need to have Elasticsearch installed and running for certain tests in our test suite. You can find instructions on how to install and run Elasticsearch specific your environment in the Installation Guide.
