After the success yesterday adding CI to a Ruby Gem I thought I can give another try to more Ruby Gems so I looked at the Ruby Digger. As I can see there is even less action there than on CPAN Digger for Perl.

Error reports

First I looked at a project called nezekan. I tried to run the tests locally, but failed. I am not sure if I was even trying to run them as the authors intended, but this error seem to be genuine. It is a case-sensitivity issue. After I fixed that locally I bumped into and reported another issue.

Only now, that I am writing this I realized that the project had a Travis-CI configuration file. Although Travis-CI does not provide the free service any more I could have looked at the configuration file and base my commands on that. I can get back to that later.


After a while I found the wp2txt project. Adding GitHub Actions to this was quite simple though it was different from the previous one. Here is the pull-request and below you'll find a copy of the configuration file as I sent it.

GitHub Actions


name: CI

    - cron: '42 5 * * *'

      fail-fast: false
        ruby: [ '3.1' ]

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    name: Ruby ${{matrix.ruby}}
    container: ruby:${{matrix.ruby}}

    - uses: actions/checkout@v3

    - name: Show Ruby Version
      run: ruby -v

    - name: Install dependencies
      run: bundle install

    - name: Install rspec
      run: gem install rspec

    - name: Run tests
      run: rspec


Slowly, but I learn how to run the tests in the various Ruby projects as well. Unfortunately there are not very many new uploads to RubyGems and this Ruby Digger is growing slowly.
