    'rest_framework_mongoengine',
    ...
)

Testing

If you discover something does not work on the DRFM side, the best way to ensure that and report an issue - is to write a test case, with minimal code that fails. You may use this template to create your case.

If you have something (Django, DRF, mongoengine) at a version, not mentioned in release notes, you better run all the tests in your environment to ensure the DRFM is compatible with that version.

For tests to work, you need pytest in your environment.

To run all the tests:

./runtests.py --fast

To run tests from separate file, class or method:

./runtests.py --fast test_name

Releases

Current release

Intended to match DRF API. The major and minor version number matches supported version of DRF. Note: this release is incompatible with all previous.

Old releases

Releases 2.x were not well compatible with DRF and mongoengine. Current code is mostly refactored and reimplemented.

Ancient releases

Releases 1.x were developed to work with DRF 2. This branch is no longer supported. Documentation available here
