Testing/development buildouts for Plone

This repository contains a number of configuration files for using zc.buildout to quickly set up a testing/development environment for your package.

A good example of how to use this, is bobtemplates.plone. Follow the instructions there to create a Plone add-on, and look at the created files, especially the various buildout configs and .travis.yml.

The intended usage is to create a buildout.cfg like:

[buildout]
extends = https://raw.githubusercontent.com/collective/buildout.plonetest/master/test-5.x.cfg
package-name = plone.app.foo

Create a virtualenv and run buildout. This should give you a bin/test script, which can be used to run your package's tests. If your tests have additional dependencies, you should declare them via the extras_require parameter of setuptools.setup and refer to the key used using the package-extras variable:

[buildout]
extends = https://raw.githubusercontent.com/collective/buildout.plonetest/master/test-5.x.cfg
package-name = plone.app.foo
package-extras = [test]

Testing in Travis CI

If you want to do continuous integration with Travis CI you can use this same buildout config. And a .travis.yml like:

version: ~> 1.0
import: collective/buildout.plonetest:travis/default.yml
python: "2.7"
env: PLONE_VERSION=5.2

Attention!

This repository also has travis-*.cfg files, that try to be faster by downloading the Plone universal installer. This is no longer recommended, because Travis meanwhile has better caching support. Only the Travis config files for Plone 5.1 and earlier have been kept, to avoid breaking add-ons. In your own buildout config, replace travis-*.cfg with test-*.cfg and you should be fine. Also take over the cache setting from the .travis.yml file above.

i18ndude helper script to update po files

Include the following in your buildout configuration to create an i18ndude helper script to update the po files of your product:

[buildout]
extends =
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/collective/buildout.plonetest/master/test-5.x.cfg
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/collective/buildout.plonetest/master/qa.cfg
package-name = plone.app.foo
package-extras = [test]
parts+=
    i18ndude
    rebuild_i18n-sh

After running bin/buildout you will find a bin/rebuild_i18n.sh; run the script and the po files will be updated.

Domain name is taken from the ${buildout:package-name} variable. The plone domain is also included.

Attention!

Originally, the rebuild_i18n-sh part used a filesystem template. This is deprecated and no longer updated.

Functional tests with Robot Framework and SeleniumLibrary in Travis CI

Update your .travis.yml file with the following:

before_script:
  - export DISPLAY=:99.0
  - sh -e /etc/init.d/xvfb start

Testing in Travis CI with multiple versions of Plone and Python

The buildout.cfg file in your package should look like this:

[buildout]
extends =
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/collective/buildout.plonetest/master/test-5.x.cfg

package-name = collective.foo
package-extras = [test]

[versions]
setuptools = 41.2.0
zc.buildout = 2.13.2

The versions are optional, but they can help in avoiding restarts when buildout tries to upgrade itself to a version pinned in Plone. It is fine to start without them, but when you run into problems in Travis CI, consider adding them. In this way, all Plone versions use the same buildout and setuptools versions.

These versions match a requirements.txt like this:

setuptools==41.2.0
zc.buildout==2.13.2

The .travis.yml file should look like this:

version: ~> 1.0
import: collective/buildout.plonetest:travis/default.yml
matrix:
  include:
    - python: "2.7"
      env: PLONE_VERSION="4.3"
    - python: "2.7"
      env: PLONE_VERSION="5.1"
    - python: "2.7"
      env: PLONE_VERSION="5.2"
    - python: "3.7"
      env: PLONE_VERSION="5.2"

The trick here is to replace the extended configuration with the right one using the sed command.

Experimental configurations

Caution!

The following configurations are experimental and may change at any time.

Quality Assurance

If you want to add Quality Assurance to your continuous integration you can update your buildout.cfg file like:

[buildout]
extends =
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/collective/buildout.plonetest/master/test-5.x.cfg
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/collective/buildout.plonetest/master/qa.cfg
package-name = plone.app.foo
package-extras = [test]
package-min-coverage = 80
parts+=
    createcoverage
    coverage-sh
    code-analysis

and add and commit .coveragerc file (see example at https://github.com/plone/plone.recipe.codeanalysis/blob/master/.coveragerc)

and update your .travis.yml like:

language: python
python: 2.7
cache:
  pip: true
  directories:
    - eggs
env:
  - TARGET=test
  - TARGET=coverage.sh
before_install:
  - virtualenv -p `which python` .
  - bin/pip install -r requirements.txt
  - bin/buildout -N -t 3 annotate
install:
  - bin/buildout -N -t 3
script:
  - bin/$TARGET
You can’t perform that action at this time.
