================
django-easytests
================

Utils for test setup based on test utils from django-cms

Installation
------------

For the current stable version:

::

pip install django-easytests

For the development version:

::

pip install -e git+git://github.com/fivethreeo/django-easytests.git@develop#egg=django-easytests

Example usage in develop.py:
-----------------------------

::

#!/usr/bin/env python

from djeasytests.testsetup import TestSetup

settings = dict(
ROOT_URLCONF='appname_test_project.urls',
INSTALLED_APPS = [
'appname_test_project',
'appname',
'django.contrib.auth',
'django.contrib.contenttypes',
'django.contrib.sessions',
'django.contrib.admin',
'django.contrib.sites',
'django.contrib.staticfiles'
]
)

testsetup = TestSetup(
appname='appname',
test_settings=settings
)

if __name__ == '__main__':
testsetup.run(__file__)

Project structure
-----------------

How to lay out files for using django-easytests::

django-appname
...
appname/
__init__.py
views.py
urls.py
models.py
tests.py
testing/
appname_test_project/
__init__.py
templates/appname/
README.rst
MANIFEST.in
LICENSE
.travis.yml
develop.py
...

Running tests and commands
--------------------------

::

develop.py test
develop.py --failfast test
develop.py --parallel test
develop.py --migrate test
develop.py test test_labels here
develop.py timed test
develop.py isolated test
develop.py manage help
develop.py manage syncdb
develop.py server

Using a custom database
-----------------------

Simply set a environment varable::

export DATABASE_URL="postgres://myuser:mypass@localhost/mydb"

Then test, server and manage will use this database.

Using existing settings:
-----------------------

Useful for testing projects

appname/base_settings.py
========================

::

ROOT_URLCONF = 'appname.urls',
INSTALLED_APPS = [
'appname'.
'django.contrib.auth',
'django.contrib.contenttypes',
'django.contrib.sessions',
'django.contrib.admin',
'django.contrib.sites',
'django.contrib.staticfiles'
]


appname/settings.py
===================

::

from appname.base_settings import *
from local_settings import *

appname/local_settings.py
=========================

::

SOME_LOCAL_SETTING = False


develop.py
==========

::

settings = dict(
DEBUG = True
)

from appname import base_settings
testsetup = TestSetup(
appname='appname',
test_settings=settings,
fallback_settings=base_settings
)

if __name__ == '__main__':
testsetup.run(__file__)

default_settings
================

By default fallback_settings gets merged with default_settings ( by default django.conf.global_settings) like in djangos settings.configure.

This can be changed by passing default_settings with a module/object other than global_settings to TestSetup.

::

from appname import other_global_settings
testsetup = TestSetup(
appname='appname',
test_settings=settings,
fallback_settings=base_settings,
default_settings=other_global_settings
)

Additional apps (test_modules) for testing
==========================================

Say you want this filestructure when the amount of test increase exponentially::

django-appname
...
appname/
__init__.py
views.py
urls.py
models.py
testing/
appname_test_project/
__init__.py
templates/appname/
appname_modeltests/
__init__.py
tests.py
models.py
appname_admintests/
__init__.py
tests.py
models.py
appname_somothertests/
__init__.py
tests.py
models.py
README.rst
MANIFEST.in
LICENSE
.travis.yml
develop.py
...

In develop.py::

from djeasytests.testsetup import TestSetup

settings = dict(
ROOT_URLCONF='appname_test_project.urls',
INSTALLED_APPS = [
'appname_modeltests',
'appname_admintests',
'appname_somothertests',
'appname_test_project',
'appname',
'django.contrib.auth',
'django.contrib.contenttypes',
'django.contrib.sessions',
'django.contrib.admin',
'django.contrib.sites',
'django.contrib.staticfiles'
]
)

testsetup = TestSetup(
appname='appname',
test_settings=settings,
test_modules=['appname_modeltests','appname_admintests','appname_somothertests']
)


if __name__ == '__main__':
testsetup.run(__file__)
