I am building a static resume website as a fun project.
It is being built with Angular/Firebase/GitHub/TravisCI. I am completely new to the last two.
When pushing changes to my repository through Visual Studio Code, TravisCI was throwing the error “Public Directory Not Found.”
I have my Firebase public directory set to “dist” which is what angular cli builds my app into.
This was my initial .travis.yml file
language: node_js node_js: - "10.4" branches: only: - master before_script: - npm install -g @angular/cli script: - ng build --prod install: - npm install -g firebase-tools deploy: provider: firebase token: secure: $FIREBASE_TOKEN project: "my-project"
Someone suggested adding
under the deploy parameter. However this did not fix the issue.
So then I tried adding
- npm install
under the script parameter and it worked! but I have no idea why.
I guess what I am wondering here is why do I need that npm install line under the script parameter? Or DO I need it?
I am pretty new to GitHub/TravisCI, so I apologize if these are very basic questions/I am doing all of this completely wrong.
