Changes to Yesod's CI
February 8, 2017
I've made some changes in the past few days to the CI setup for the yesodweb/yesod repo that I thought contributors may be interested in knowing about.
- We were regularly running into build timeouts on OS X on Travis. To
work around this, we no longer build benchmarks and Haddocks on OS
X, and compile with
-O0. Relevant Travis changes
- I've (finally) bit the bullet and made the repo compile with
-Wall -Werrorenabled, at least for recent versions of GHC. From now on, PRs will need to maintain warning-cleanliness. Relevant Travis changes
- There's now an AppVeyor configuration, so PRs can be checked against Windows (in addition to the existing Linux and OS X coverage provided by Travis). This did, in fact, reveal two issues around line endings. Relevant AppVeyor addition.
Nothing major, just a few changes that contributors should be aware of. Hopefully that green checkmark on a PR will now have a few less of both false positives and false negatives.
