python sony camera api

Running tests

You will likely want to set up a virtualenv first and complete the following steps inside it.

Install requirements:

pip install -r test-requirements.txt

Run tests:

python -m unittest discover

(The run_tests.sh script does both of these automatically)

By default, the test suite verifies behavior locally using dummy services.

If you want to run tests live against your real camera, connect to the camera's wireless access point and set the TEST_LIVE_CAMERA environment variable. For example:

TEST_LIVE_CAMERA=1 python -m unittest discover
