This package contains a global configuration of Dart package bots, including the annotated-steps used by our buildbot infrastructure and a small file that can be used as a trigger for starting a new build in our bots (see trigger.txt).

Using the test package runner

By default, the package bots will use the SDK repository's custom test runner to run the tests on the package bots. However, packages that use the new test package can choose to use its runner instead. The simplest way to do so is to set test_package to true in the .test_config file:

  "test_package": true

Note that when using the test runner, the .status file is ignored. Instead, use the test runner's @TestOn annotations to mark individual tests that should pass or fail on particular platforms, or use the "platforms" key to skip certain platforms entirely (see below).

Platform restrictions

By default, the package bots will run all browsers that are available on a given platform, respecting the test package's @TestOn annotations. However, some packages may not ever want to run on particular platforms; instead of specifying a @TestOn annotation in every single file, these tests can specify a set of allowed platforms in the configuration:

  "test_package": {
    "platforms": ["vm", "dartium", "content-shell"]

These platform names are the same names that are passed to the test runner. If OS-specific platforms such as Internet Explorer are included, they will only be run on the appropriate OS.

Running with barback

Unlike the default behavior of the package bots, the test package runner doesn't use barback by default. Packages can tell it to run their tests transformed in the configuration:

  "test_package": {
    "barback": true

This will cause the test runner to transform the test directory via pub build and run pub run test against the result.
