manually ping travis-ci to restart the last build.

Useful if an external dependency (like a plugin/module, server, or service) was down when the test originally ran, or if your testing target changes over time (like a▸ web scraper).


  • A repo that has testing enabled and at least one test previously ran
  • Github credentials for an account with access to the travis repo

Use it as a node module

  var travisPing = require('travis-ping');'patrickkettner', ''mYr33lP4$5w0rd101jk, 'patrickkettner/travis-ping', function(travisResponse) {

or as a command line tool

  travis-ping patrickkettner/travis-ping
