takes json-cov output into stdin and POSTs to coveralls.io
Add the latest version of
coveralls to your package.json:
npm install coveralls --save-dev
If you're using mocha, add
mocha-lcov-reporter to your package.json:
npm install mocha-lcov-reporter --save-dev
This script (
bin/coveralls.js ) can take standard input from any tool that emits the lcov data format (including mocha's LCov reporter) and send it to coveralls.io to report your code coverage there.
Once your app is instrumented for coverage, and building, you need to pipe the lcov output to
This library currently supports travis-ci with no extra effort beyond piping the lcov output to coveralls. However, if you're using a different build system, there are a few environment variables that are necessary:
There are optional environment variables for other build systems as well:
NODE_ENV=test YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE=1 ./node_modules/.bin/mocha \--require blanket \--reporter mocha-lcov-reporter | ./node_modules/coveralls/bin/coveralls.js
Instrumenting your app for coverage is probably harder than it needs to be (read here), but that's also a necessary step.
In mocha, if you've got your code instrumented for coverage, the command for a travis build would look something like this:
YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE=1 ./node_modules/.bin/mocha test -R mocha-lcov-reporter | ./node_modules/coveralls/bin/coveralls.js
Check out an example Makefile from one of my projects for an example, especially the test-coveralls build target. Note: Travis runs
npm test, so whatever target you create in your Makefile must be the target that
npm test runs (This is set in package.json's 'scripts' property).
istanbul cover ./node_modules/mocha/bin/_mocha --report lcovonly -- -R spec && cat ./coverage/lcov.info | ./node_modules/coveralls/bin/coveralls.js && rm -rf ./coverage
istanbul cover jasmine-node --captureExceptions spec/ && cat ./coverage/lcov.info | ./node_modules/coveralls/bin/coveralls.js && rm -rf ./coverage
Depend on nodeunit, jscoverage and coveralls:
npm install nodeunit jscoverage coveralls --save-dev
Add a coveralls script to "scripts" in your
"scripts":"test": "nodeunit test""coveralls": "jscoverage lib && YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE=1 nodeunit --reporter=lcov test | coveralls"
Ensure your app requires instrumented code when
process.env.YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE variable is defined.
Run your tests with a command like this:
npm run coveralls
For detailed instructions on requiring instrumented code, running on Travis and submitting to coveralls see this guide.
./node_modules/.bin/poncho -R lcov test/test.html | ./node_modules/coveralls/bin/coveralls.js
lab -r lcov | ./node_modules/.bin/coveralls
works with almost any testing framework. Simply execute
npm test with the
nyc bin followed by running its reporter:
nyc npm test && nyc report --reporter=text-lcov | coveralls
Simply run your tap tests with the
variable set and tap will automatically use
nyc to report
coverage to coveralls.
Usage: coveralls.js [-v] filepath
filepath - optionally defines the base filepath of your source files.
If you're running locally, you must have a
.coveralls.yml file, as documented in their documentation, with your
repo_token in it; or, you must provide a
COVERALLS_REPO_TOKEN environment-variable on the command-line.
If you want to send commit data to coveralls, you can set the
COVERALLS_GIT_COMMIT environment-variable to the commit hash you wish to reference. If you don't want to use a hash, you can set it to
HEAD to supply coveralls with the latest commit data. This requires git to be installed and executable on the current PATH.
I generally don't accept pull requests that are untested, or break the build, because I'd like to keep the quality high (this is a coverage tool afterall!).
I also don't care for "soft-versioning" or "optimistic versioning" (dependencies that have ^, x, > in them, or anything other than numbers and dots). There have been too many problems with bad semantic versioning in dependencies, and I'd rather have a solid library than a bleeding edge one.
