Travis CI Setup

Visit the Travis CI website and log in by authenticating it with GitHub.
Once authenticated you can visit your profile page where you'll find a list of all your repositories on GitHub.

To enable Travis CI for a project, find it in this list, then "Settings" button next to it.
In here you'll want to make sure only "Build pushed branches" is enabled, like so:

Further down on this page you'll find a section called "Environment Variables", here you'll
enter your credentials for each site you want your addons to be released at.
Here's a list of what to put in the "Name" and "Value" boxes:
  • WoWInterface
  • CurseForge
  • GitHub
    • Name: GITHUB_OAUTH
    • Value: Generate a token (with full repo/org scopes) then copy/paste it.

Here's an example:

Once that's set up you'll need to create a ".travis.yml" file in the root of your repository,
right next to your TOC file. The naming of this file is crucial, as well as this content:

YAML Code:
  1. sudo: false
  2. language: c
  4. addons:
  5.   apt:
  6.     packages:
  7.     - pandoc
  9. script: curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/BigWigsMods/packager/master/release.sh | bash
  11. branches:
  12.   only:
  13.   - /^\d+\.\d+(\.\d+)?(-\S*)?$/

All this file does is letting Travis CI know what to do;
Install the required software, download the packager script and run it.

The only thing you need to keep in mind here is the "branches" part.
This will make sure that Travis CI only runs when there is a new tag.
It checks this by looking at the name of the branch (tags are techically branches),
then uses regular expressions to match it against your versioning schema.

You'll most likely need to tweak this to your own versioning schema, reply and I'll assist you.

And that's it for the Travis CI part!
