Badges!? – we NEED stinking badges!

Spending a lot of time on Github, I observed that a lot of projects have cool badges on their pages indicating:

– build status
– coverage
– code climate

And so on…

I have been using Travis CI for my Github projects and it works like a charm. So when I fell over Dave Cross’ presentation and blog post on Travis CI and Github integration I had to read it case there was something useful I did not know and guess what there was.

Dave demonstrated how to get Travis CI and Perl on Github going, but also integrated with Coveralls and he showed how to get a coverage badge on your project.

AWESOME!

And in combination with the Travis CI documentation describing how to get a build status badge

Okay, okay, two badges there most be more, so I did some googling and found CPAN badges, badges indicating the latest release to CPAN…

All examples are taken from my Github repository Business::DK::Postalcode and you know what it even works for MetaCPAN.
