This package enables you to test, manage and run Django applications in their own process space.
Simply inherit your test case class from
dpt.testing.FunctionalTestCase instead of
This will cause the testrunner to start a new process and run the test in isolation. Test results will appear exactly the same.
Note that this will set up the default Django settings environment
django.conf.global_settings with a SQLite in-memory database.
Running an application
For a general introduction to PasteDeploy consult its documentation.
[app:my-django-app] use = egg:django-process-tools#app settings = %(here)s/settings.py [composite:main] use = egg:Paste#urlmap / = my-django-app [server:main] use = egg:Spawning host = 0.0.0.0 port = 8080 processes = 4 threadpool_workers = 1
Note the reference to the
settings.py file which in this example
resides in the same directory (the
here variable is substituted
with the local directory).
To run the application we use PasteScript with the
$ paster serve deploy.ini
manage command mimicks Django's
manage.py script. Here's
an example of an invocation of the
$ paster manage deploy.ini my-django-app syncdb
To show all commands:
$ paster manage deploy.ini my-django-app help
Note that if the application name is
main (this short-hand is used
in general with the Paste system), the command is just:
$ paster manage deploy.ini syncdb
