Test::Chimps::Anna - An IRQ bot that announces test failures (and unexpected passes)
Anna is a bot. Specifically, she is an implementation of Bot::BasicBot. She will query your smoke report database and print smoke report summaries when tests fail or unexpectedly succeed.
use Test::Chimps::Anna; my $anna = Test::Chimps::Anna->new( server => "irc.perl.org", port => "6667", channels => ["#example"], nick => "anna", username => "nice_girl", name => "Anna", database_file => '/path/to/chimps/chimpsdb/database', config_file => '/path/to/chimps/anna-config.yml', server_script => 'http://example.com/cgi-bin/chimps-server.pl' ); $anna->run;
ARGS is a hash who's keys are mostly passed through to Bot::BasicBot. Keys which are recognized beyond the ones from
Bot::BasicBot are as follows:
Mandatory. The SQLite database Anna should connect to get smoke report data.
Mandatory. The URL of the server script. This is used to display URLs to the full smoke report.
If your server accepts report variables, you must specify a config file. The config file is a YAML dump of an array containing the names of those variables. Yes, this is a hack.
Overrided method. Checks for new smoke reports every 2 minutes and prints summaries if there were failed tests or if tests unexpectedly succeeded.
