Running and writing tests
Running the tests
If you don't have Django installed, you can run the tests with:
It will skip the Django tests.
If you do have Django installed, then you need to specify DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE. Run the tests like this:
If you need to adjust the settings, copy test_settings.py to a new file (like test_settings_local.py), edit the file, and pass that in as the value for DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE.
This is helpful if you need to change the value of ES_HOSTS to match the ip address or port that elasticsearch is listening on.
Tests are located in elasticutils/tests/.
We use nose for test utilities and running tests.
If you're testing things in ElasticUtils that require hitting an ElasticSearch instance, then you should subclass elasticutils.tests.ElasticTestCase which has code in it for making things easier.
