Validate HTML5 files.
Create a .travis.yml file:
language: python branches: only: - gh-pages python: - "2.7" install: - "pip install html5validator" script: "html5validator"
in your repository with static html files and get HTML5 validation on every git push. Enable the repository on TravisCI.
You probably don’t want TravisCI to run on the master branch but only on the gh-pages branch. TravisCI has an option (off by default) to run tests only on branches that have a .travis.yml.
You can also use this for user pages (repositories of the form <username>.github.io) where the html files are in the master branch. You only have to remove:
branches: only: - gh-pages
from .travis.yml. I am using this on my own user page.
To facilitate the primary use case with TravisCI, this repository also contains a Python package called html5validator which can be installed using pip:
pip install html5validator
This package uses the validator.nu backend which is written in Java. Therefore, a Java Runtime Environment must be available on your system.
