Running Tests


Before you will be able to run these tests you will need to have Python 2.6 installed.


The below instructions will install the required Python libraries into your global Python installation. If you work on multiple Python projects that might end up needing different versions of the same libraries, you might want to follow sudo easy_install pip with sudo pip install virtualenv, and then create and activate a virtualenv (e.g. virtualenv caseconductor-tests-env; source case-conductor-tests-env/bin/activate) to create a clean "virtual environment" for just this project. Then you can pip install -r requiremenst/mozwebqa.txt in your virtual environment without needing to use sudo.

If you don't mind installing globally, just run

sudo easy_install pip

followed by

sudo pip install -r requirements.txt


If you are running on Ubuntu/Debian you will need to first do

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

to install the required Python libraries.

Running tests locally

To run tests locally it's a simple case of calling py.test from the root directory.

py.test --driver=firefox

For more command line options see
