Testing

If you want to run the unittests with authentication, simply run:

make alltests

From the root of the repository. If you would rather see what will take place on Travis, run:

make travis
# or
make tests

To test how much of the library is covered:

make coverage_auth
# equivalently
make coverage_all
# or without authentication
make coverage

Depending on which you run, you will see different percentages reported by coverage. As of this writing (2012-09-06), coverage_auth reports 85% covered.
