I tried to include Codecov in my Flutter project, it works fine with top level coverage, and found my in root/coverage/, but there’s another coverage i’d like Codecov to cover, it’s in root/packages/packageA/coverage, and Codecov failed to cover it. I’ve tried to use directory and also files, but both failed.

Expected Results

Codecov finds all in all sub packages and include them in report

Actual Results

codecov could not find all files

@suesitran this could be a silly thing, but could you run CI/CD with a step before Codecov just to make sure that file exists? Maybe cat ./packages/nartus_ui_package/coverage/

Actually that’s the reason, and the failure is not because of codecov, but because of Flutter, I noted that issue in my article here: Flutter — Interactive Diary — A developer diary #5 | by Suesi Tran | Aug, 2022 | Medium

It turned out, flutter test command does not generate for all tests in all sub packages, so I have to run that command in each package separately

This command will fail to generate in packages/*/ folder
flutter test test packages/*/test --coverage

So fix with this
for d in $(ls packages); do cd packages/$d; flutter test --coverage; cd -; done

It works, although it does not look elegant :slight_smile:

Got it! Thanks for the write up @suesitran!!
