All the dependencies you need to be able to run tests are encapsulated in the test-requirements.txt file. First install that into your virtualenv:
pip install -r test-requirementst.txt
You also need to create a dedicated PostgreSQL database that you can run the tests against. And you also you need to be able to connect to this database. So you need the username and password.
Next, in the root directory of the project create a file called
test-crontabber.ini and it should look something like this:
[resource] [[postgresql]] user=myusername password=mypassword dbname=test_crontabber
To start all the tests run:
If you want to run a specific test in a specific file in a specific class
you can define it per the
nosetests standard like this for example:
PYTHONPATH=. nosetests tests crontabber/tests/test_crontabber.py:TestCrontabber.test_basic_run_job
If you want the tests to stop as soon as the first test fails add
that same command above.
Also, if you want
nosetests to not capture
-s to that
same command as above.
exampleapp project helps you set up a playground to play around with and
crontabber to gain a better understanding of how it works.
The best place to start with is to read the exampleapp/README.md file and go through its steps. Once you get the basics to work you can start experimenting with adding your job classes.
