Gaia Build Status

Gaia is Mozilla's Phone UX for the Boot to Gecko (B2G) project.

Boot to Gecko aims to create a complete, standalone operating system for the open web.

You can read more about B2G here:

Tests

Unit Tests

Unit tests for an app go in apps/<APP>/test/unit/.

To run all the unit tests with B2G Desktop:

  1. Run DEBUG=1 make
  2. Run make test-agent-server &
  3. Run B2G Desktop and open the Test Agent app
  4. Run make test-agent-test

    or make test-agent-test APP=<APP> to run unit tests for a specific app

More importantly, you can use test-agent-server to watch the files on the filesystem and execute relevant tests when they change:

  1. Run DEBUG=1 make
  2. Run make test-agent-server &
  3. Run B2G Desktop and open the Test Agent app
  4. Edit files and when you save them, glance at the console with test-agent-server running

Note: If you add new files, you will need to restart test-agent-server.

As a convenience, you can also use the gaia-test script to launch the test-agent-server and open the Test Agent app in firefox:

  1. Add firefox to your $PATH or set $FIREFOX to your preferred firefox/aurora/nightly binary.
  2. Run ./bin/gaia-test to run the test-agent-server and launch firefox.
  3. Run make test-agent-test or modify files as described above.

For more details on writing tests, see: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Mozilla/Boot_to_Gecko/Gaia_Unit_Tests

Integration Tests

Gaia uses marionette-js-runner to run the tests with a custom builder for gaia. Tests should live with the rest of your apps code (in apps/my_app/test/marionette) and test files should end in _test.js.

All integration tests run under a node environment. You need node >= 0.8 for this to work predictably.

Shared code for tests lives under shared/test/integration.

Invoking a test

./bin/gaia-marionette <test> [test...]

All options are passed to ./node_modules/.bin/marionette-mocha so you can also use mocha commands like --grep, --timeout see --help for more options.

Invoking tests for a specific app

make test-integration APP=<APP>

For example, we could run all tests for the calendar app with make test-integration APP=calendar.

Invoking all the tests

NOTE: unless you tests end in _test.js they will not be automatically picked up by make test-integration.

make test-integration

Running tests while working

If you wish to run many tests in background you might not want to be disturbed by the b2g-desktop window popping everytime, or the sound. One solution for the first issue is to use Xvfb:

xvfb-run make test-integration

If you are using PulseAudio and want to keep the tests quied, then just force an invalid server:

PULSE_SERVER=":" make test-integration

You can of course combine both:

PULSE_SERVER=":" xvfb-run make test-integration

Where to find documentation

Gotchas

  • For performance reasons we don't run make profile for each test run this means you need to manually remove the profile-test folder when you make changes to your apps.

  • If you don't have a b2g folder one will be downloaded for you. This can be problematic if you're offline. You can symlink a b2g-desktop directory to b2g/ in gaia to avoid the download.

  • If you have some weird node errors, try removing node_modules since things may be stale.

  • To get debug information from the b2g desktop client, run this: DEBUG=b2g-desktop ./bin/gaia-marionette name/of/test.js

  • To get debug information from b2g desktop and all of the marionette plugins, run this: DEBUG=* ./bin/gaia-marionette name/of/test.js

Generate jsdoc

To generate API reference locally:

  1. run npm install first to install required libraries (may need sudo privilege)
  2. run grunt docs command to generate docs in docs folder
