I want to use Cask for development, but have trouble getting it set up.

Could anyone please show a minimal example with one package file, one function and one ert-test and which commands you need to 1) run the tests and 2) install the package?

Just something simple like an add function, and a test for 2+2.

    Why don't you take a look at a small package?

  • Haven't found one. All the examples linked to in the old wiki are rather large so if something breaks, you do not know why. Jan 23, 2016 at 16:28

    There are plenty of potential packages on MELPA. Take a look at seq.el for instance.

    @lunaryorn why don't you add that comment as an answer? It helped me, and I would vote for it. Feb 24, 2016 at 8:30

Per lunaryorn's comment, Have a look at seq.el. It's a good example of a small Cask project.
