Tests Checker

To install this bot to your Open Sourced project:



You can configure bot by adding .github/tests_checker.yml file to the repository and override any of the settings listed below.

Default values are:

comment: 'Could you please add tests to make sure this change works as expected?',
fileExtensions: ['.php', '.ts', '.js', '.c', '.cs', '.cpp', '.rb', '.java']
testDir: 'tests'
testPattern: ''


  • comment - a text that bot will post when it won't find tests in the PR
  • fileExtensions - extensions of the files that should be treated as a source code. Bot will do nothing if you just updating because usually no tests are required to cover such change.
  • testDir - folder, where tests are located. Make sure to set it correctly, otherwise bot will not be able to understand whether the test file was added or not.
  • testPattern - a shell glob pattern that should match test files. For example, you can set it to testPattern: *_test.go and Bot will be able to understand, that added test has this pattern instead of located in testDir. testDir and testPattern are alternatives, however can be used together.

Both testDir and testPattern may be specified in a custom configuration, both settings will be used to locate test files. If you want to change any of the settings, just add .github/tests_checker.yml:

testDir: app-tests

If you don't want to change anything, you can skip creating this file.
