comptests 1.3.0

Testing utilities for projects that use ConfTools for handling their configuration.


Testing utilities built on top of [ConfTools][conftools], [CompMake][compmake]
and [QuickApp][quickapp].

Basic Usage

This is the usage for packages that register objects using [ConfTools][conftools].

# Defining tests

Call the function ``comptests_for_all`` to create a decorator:

# get the library (ObjSpec)
library_robots = get_conftools_robots()

# Create a test decorator
for_all_robots = comptests_for_all(library_robots)

# Use the decorator to specify tests. Test functions
# must take two arguments: id object and object itself

def check_robot_type(id_robot, robot):
assert isinstance(robot, RobotInterface)

You can also register tests for pairs:

library_nuisances = get_conftools_nuisances()
for_all_robot_nuisance_pairs = comptests_for_all_pairs(library_robots, library_nuisances)

def check_nuisances_obs(id_robot, robot, id_nuisance, nuisance):
check_conversions(robot.get_spec().get_observations(), nuisance)

# Running tests

Use the command line:

comptests <module>

This looks for the ``get_comptests()`` function in ``<module>``:

def get_comptests():
# get testing configuration directory
from pkg_resources import resource_filename
dirname = resource_filename("boot_agents", "configs")
# load unittests
from . import unittests
from comptests import get_comptests_app
# Get the Quickapp for the boot_config
app = get_comptests_app(get_boot_config())
return [app]

Finding coverage information

It's very usuful to use the ``coverage`` tool together with comptests.

Install the ``coverage`` tool:

pip install coverage

If ``coverage`` is installed then comptests automatically computes
the coverage information for nosetests execution.

To do the coverage information for the comptests, run like this:

coverage run =comptests -c "make recurse=1" <package>

Note that you cannot use parallel testing (using ``parmake``) otherwise
coverage gets confused.

This displays the results:

coverage report -m

Then create the HTML report:

coverage html -d outdir
