A small bash script to download and start Sauce Connect as part of a Travis Build.
# Setup and start Sauce Connect for your TravisCI build
# This script requires your .travis.yml to include the following two private env variables:
# Follow the steps at to set that up.
# Curl and run this script as part of your .travis.yml before_script section:
# before_script:
# - curl | bash
# Get Connect and start it
mkdir -p $CONNECT_DIR
java -jar Sauce-Connect.jar --readyfile $READY_FILE \
--tunnel-identifier $TRAVIS_JOB_NUMBER \
# Wait for Connect to be ready before exiting
while [ ! -f $READY_FILE ]; do
sleep .5
