How did you install 'internet explorer' browser on codeship?

@sergiovilar This definitely worked for me. Saw your error but was forgetting to run 'bower install' in the setup.

Hi, the config is working but all tests are failing in Codeship while on local env they're correct.

Hi, I also have the config working, the baseUrl is accessed successfully (I'm doing a print screen, and the main page is loaded correctly) but the first API request that I make fails with 405 Method not allowed (this being the login request all other tests fail). All tests are running fine on my local environment. I have a rails app with angularjs. Any thoughts why the API would return 405 only on Codeship?

This was working for me for a while but all the sudden i started getting an error on the test step. Not really sure what changed. Is anybody else having an issue?

[launcher] Process exited with error code 1

just found that there is BREAKING CHANGE: 1) Users will no longer be able to use node versions <4. 2,

just updated node to 4.2.1 via nvm install 4.2.1 and all working again.

For those of you running a Rails app, substitute this line:

# Run local website, my website is contained within the ./app folder

http-server app > /dev/null &

with this:
nohup bash -c "rails s &"

This will start the rails server in the background and continue to the next task.
