## How to run tests

First you need to create a dedicated test database. We recommend you call
it `test_crontabber`. Then you need the necessary credentials for it.

Before running the tests you need to install some extras to be able to
run tests at all:

pip install -r test-requirements.txt

Next, in the root directory of the project create a file called
`test-crontabber.ini` and it should look something like this:


To start all the tests run:

PYTHONPATH=. nosetests

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/

If you want the tests to stop as soon as the first test fails add `-x` to
that same command above.

Also, if you want `nosetests` to *not* capture `stdout` add `-s` to that
same command as above.

## How to do code coverage analysis

First you need to install the
[coverage]( module. Then, with
`nosetests, you can run this:

PYTHONPATH=. nosetests --with-coverage --cover-erase --cover-html --cover-package=crontabber
After it has run, you can open the file `cover/index.html` in browser.

## How to run the exampleapp

The example app helps you set up a playground to play around with and
test crontabber to gain a better understanding of how it works.

The best place to start with is to read the `exampleapp/` file
and go through its steps. Once you get the basics to work you can start
experimenting with adding your job classes.
