I am trying to setup my first project using CircleCI, having built up experience with related services from TravisCI and AppVeyor.
Specifically this is a Python 2.7 project (due to upstream dependencies) on GitHub on a public repository, and I have created a simple
.circleci/config.yml file on a new (temporary) branch
circleci which passes local validation:
$ circleci version 0.1.3541+215b0f9 $ circleci config validate Config file at .circleci/config.yml is valid.
Through the CircleCI website I have logged in using GitHub, and have selected this project from my personal account (not one of the organisations I have access too) via “Add Projects”, selected Linux, Python and then clicked on “Start Building”. Within about a second the button switches to “Building” and then “Failed”.
Is there a way to see why this failed? Right now my only guess is that
.circleci/config.yml needs to exist on the default branch, which I would prefer to avoid at this point.
