So I am trying to set up a sweet automatic test setting for an Erlang codebase. The tools are in OTP already. There is cover for coverage analysis. There is eunit for running unit tests xUnit-style. There is make for compiling.
But it is not that simple to Just Use It™. I’m diving into the source for make.erl to see if there is some hidden feature to make it cover-compile my erl files for me. If it does not, then I will have to use plain old Makefiles to compile instead.
I just wish I could find some code that uses Common Test already.
Oh. And dialyzer should be included in this build process as well.
Lots of infrastructure setup… :/
Update: Perhaps the extensible build system and a collection of templates could be what I want.
