What's deployed?


Run the tests

There's a sample test in snippets/base/ for your convenience, that you can run using the following command:

python test

If you want to run the full suite, with flake8 and coverage, you may use tox. This will run the tests the same way they are run by travis):

pip install tox

The .travis.yml file will also run coveralls by default.

If you want to benefit from Travis and Coveralls, you will need to activate them both for your project.

Oh, and you might want to change the "Build Status" and "Coverage Status" links at the top of this file to point to your own travis and coveralls accounts.

Docker for deploying to production

  1. Add your project in Docker Registry as Automated Build

  2. Prepare a 'env' file with all the variables needed by dev, stage or production.

  3. Run the image:

    docker run --env-file env -p 80:8000 mozorg/snippets
