Build Status Coverage Status

Supported Rails versions

Please see the most recent Travis-CI build for the most up-to-date list of supported framework environments. At the time of this writing, the gem officially supports the following:

  • Ruby versions:
    • 2.5
    • 2.3
  • Framework versions:
    • Rails 5.2
    • Rails 5.0
    • Middleman 4.2

Pull requests are welcome to enable supporting other frameworks!

To get started in testing a new Ruby version, use rvm or rbenv to choose your ruby version. Then, check out the appropriate Gemfile using the bin/use helper:

$ rbenv local 2.2.6
$ gem install bundler
$ bundle install
$ bin/use gemfiles/rails_5.2.gemfile

Now each of the wcc- gems has a Gemfile based on that Appraisal gemfile. cd into the gem's directory and run bundle install to install the gems.

Adding a new Rails version

To get started testing a new framework, add the appropriate combination of gems to the Appraisals file and run bundle exec appraisal install to generate the appropriate gemfile in the gemfiles directory:

diff --git a/Appraisals b/Appraisals
index 041abea..917142f 100644
--- a/Appraisals
+++ b/Appraisals

 # frozen_string_literal: true

+appraise 'sinatra-2.0' do
+  gem 'sinatra', '~> 2.0.0'
 appraise 'rails-5.2' do
   gem 'rails', '~> 5.2.0'
   gem 'railties', '~> 5.2.0'

Then you can use the bin/use helper to check out that set of gems:

$ bundle exec appraisal install
$ bin/use gemfiles/rails_6.0.gemfile

And build a helper that conditionally includes your framework specs based on whether that gem is installed. Example:

# spec/active_record_helper.rb

require 'spec_helper'

  gem 'activerecord'
  require 'active_record'
rescue Gem::LoadError => e
  # active_record is not loaded in this test run
  warn "WARNING: Cannot load active_record - some tests will be skipped\n#{e}"

if defined?(ActiveJob)
  ActiveJob::Base.queue_adapter = :test
  RSpec.configure do |c|
    # skip active record based specs
    c.before(:each, active_record: true) do
      skip 'activerecord is not loaded'

Code of Conduct

Everyone interacting in the WCC::Contentful project's codebases, issue trackers, chat rooms and mailing lists is expected to follow the code of conduct.

Deployment instructions:

1) Bump the version number using the appropriate rake task:

rake bump:major
rake bump:patch
rake bump:minor
rake bump:pre

Note: ensure that the versions of both gems are synchronized! The release command will run rake check and will fail if this is not the case. The bump tasks should synchronize automatically.

2) Run rake release to commit, tag, and upload the gems.
