Affiliates Tests

Automated tests for the Affiliates web application.

Running Tests


You will need a version of the Java Runtime Environment installed


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


easy_install pip

followed by

sudo pip install -r requirements.txt


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

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

to install the required Python libraries.


Once this is all set up you will need to download and start a Selenium server. You can download the latest Selenium server from here. The filename will be something like 'selenium-server-standalone-2.8.0.jar'

To start the Selenium server run the following command:

java -jar ~/Downloads/selenium-server-standalone-2.8.0.jar

Change the path/name to the downloaded Selenium server file.

Running tests locally

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


To run the user accounts tests:

  1. Create an account on the Affiliates instance
  2. Edit the credentials.yaml with your credentials
  3. Run the tests with:

    py.test --credentials=~/credentials.yaml

For more command-line options access

  2. Follow our simple style guide
  3. Fork this project with your own GitHub account
  4. Add your test into the "tests" folder and the necessary methods for it into the appropriate file in "pages"
  5. Make sure all tests are passing, and submit a pull request with your changes
