#9872 closed enhancement (fixed)

Create a test runner for BridgeDB unittests

We need a test runner which can pass on commands (i.e. doing "python test" would actually run "trial coverage [args] [tests/test directory]" and pass the arguments and test cases to coverage if need be. See tahoe-lafs's code for an example) and environment variables (i.e. PYTHONPATH).

Ideally, this thing will handle coverage (but that shouldn't be prioritised, as it isn't necessary), and it should handle whatever different unittest frameworks are used so that all pertinent tests can be run with one command.

I don't think we'll be able to run python-coverage from without some serious hacking, but twisted.trial can be run from

We can add a 'coverage' and 'test' command to scripts/bridgedb, so that either of these could be run after the bridgedb script is installed though.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

This was added in my develop branch at commit c9dc17e85b5f19b791b1a509fe65a1bb9e319b47. A patch is also attached.

To run the trial-based tests, install BridgeDB and do:

$ bridgedb test

The reporter for python-coverage still isn't working correctly, to fix it, I believe that hooks into trialcoverage.coverage will need to be made to force twisted.trial to use trialcoverage's added --reporter=bwverbose-coverage flag. I didn't really want to fiddle with it more right now because it's really only important that the unittests run; they can have pretty reporting/graphs/coveralls later.
