We utilize the Travis CI platform to enable continuous integration on all commits and pull requests against the GitHub repository. The Travis CI test suite contains many of the same tests that you can run locally. Travis CI ensures that the most recent changes to the code do not cause test cases to fail that were previously passing.
Travis CI is also used test against several different versions of libraries to ensure compatibility. For example, in preparation for upgrading to a new version of PHP, we currently build against PHP 5.5, 5.6, and 7.0 to ensure that there is no code that is invalid on any platform.
Currently, Travis is setup with these commands:
travis.yml .setup/travis.sh .setup/travis/*
The above scripts which contain the code necessary for installing the packages needed for execution, setting up apache, downloading and starting selenium, and then actually running the test suite.
