        #ContinuousIntegration

        The continuous integration process for our Rails backend app starts by opening a GitHub pull request. This triggers a CircleCI build and some Code Climate checks.

        The CircleCI build is a workflow that runs the following jobs:

        • check for security vulnerabilities with Brakeman
        • check code quality with RuboCop
        • run RSpec tests in parallel with the knapsack gem, and output test coverage reports with the simplecov gem
        • upload test coverage to Code Climate

        Code Climate checks the following:

        • code quality metrics like code complexity
        • test coverage minimum thresholds

        The CircleCI jobs and Code Climate checks above have corresponding GitHub status checks.

        Once all the mandatory GitHub checks pass and the code+functionality have been reviewed, developers can merge their pull request into our Git master branch. Code is then ready to deploy!
