Module::Build::Smolder - Extra build targets for sending smoke tests to a Smolder server


Easily add support for extra build targets to send TAP Archives to a Smolder server

In your Build.PL

    use Module::Builder::Smolder;
    my $builder = Module::Builder::Smolder->new(

Now you get these build targets

    ]$ perl Build.PL
    ]$ ./Build smolder ...


The following build targets are provided:


Create a TAP archive and then send it to Smolder.

Required Flags

 This target needs to know where to send the archive, so it needs the following options:
    ]$ ./Build smolder --server mysmolder.com --username foo --password s3cr3t --project_id 5

Optional Flags


The Smolder user uploading the report. If not specified it will be uploaded anonymously


Specify the file to store the archive


Name of the architecture for the report


Name of the CPU platform


Comma separated list of tags for this report


Free form text to associate with the smoke report


If you've already run the tests and created a TAP Archive and you just want to submit that one to Smolder again, use this flag so that it doesn't run the tests again. Really useful when troubleshooting.
