Coveralls is a web service that tracks code coverage over time for GitHub projects. Coveralls requires Travis CI to be set up beforehand as Travis sends the coverage report from the latest build to Coveralls. If you have not set up Travis CI, see UsingTravis.adoc. Currently, Coveralls supports Travis CI but not AppVeyor.

Setting up Coveralls

  2. After logging in, you will be brought to the Your Repositories page. On the site’s navigation bar, click ADD REPOS.

  3. Find the switch for the forked repository.

    • If the organization is not shown, click GITHUB SETTINGS as shown below:

      to Coveralls so that it can access your repository.

    • If your repository cannot be found, click SYNC REPOS.
