How to run tests
First you need to create a dedicated test database. We recommend you call
test_crontabber. Then you need the necessary credentials for it.
Before running the tests you need to install some extras to be able to run tests at all:
pip install -r test-requirements.txt
Next, in the root directory of the project create a file called
test-crontabber.ini and it should look something like this:
[crontabber] user=myusername password=mypassword dbname=test_crontabber
To start all the tests run:
If you want to run a specific test in a specific file in a specific class
you can define it per the
nosetests standard like this for example:
PYTHONPATH=. nosetests tests crontabber/tests/test_crontabber.py:TestCrontabber.test_basic_run_job
If you want the tests to stop as soon as the first test fails add
that same command above.
Also, if you want
nosetests to not capture
-s to that
same command as above.
How to do code coverage analysis
First you need to install the coverage module. Then, with `nosetests, you can run this:
PYTHONPATH=. nosetests --with-coverage --cover-erase --cover-html --cover-package=crontabber
After it has run, you can open the file
cover/index.html in browser.
How to run the exampleapp
The example app helps you set up a playground to play around with and test crontabber to gain a better understanding of how it works.
The best place to start with is to read the
and go through its steps. Once you get the basics to work you can start
experimenting with adding your job classes.
