Developer/Nightly Build

generated on 2019-08-26 00:07:09.863713 from the wiki page for Developer/Nightly_Build for SUMO git

There are two main scripts responsible for the nightly build process which are <SUMO_HOME>/tools/build/ (for the linux part) and <SUMO_HOME>/tools/build/ for Windows. Essentially they both perform the following steps:

  1. git pull
  2. do a clean build (release and debug version)
  3. run unittests (currently linux only)
  4. build and upload packages
  5. build and upload documentation (linux only)
  6. run the acceptance tests (texttest)
  7. upload test results

All the results can be found in the daily dir on the sumo web space, also see Downloads#Nightly_Snapshots. Coverage information based on running the nightly tests is generated as well. The status can be found at the sumo web space.

There is also a local copy in the Daten/Sumo/daily directory (including the most recent game scenarios) the DLR internal tsall NAS. The windows script uses the sumo-all package from the local dir to build the binary distributable zip and the game zip.

One final step is to trigger the nightly build on the opensuse build service. This is achieved via uploading a new spec file via a cronjob, which triggers an automatic download of the sources and a rebuild. All errors and test result e-mails are directed to the sumo-tests list at, except for the build service errors which go to a private account since the build is currently in a private project.

Additionally there is a continuous integration build on Travis and on AppVeyor.
