Building with tests included

This module was built to be tested, released and installed like any other python package. Someday users will be able to pip install it from Pypi.

For now, developers will need to download the repo and instal it in 'editable mode' to avoid having to re-build it:

pip install -e .

Running tests

Leveraging pytest with the pytest-cov module:

pytest -v --cov=aquacroppy

Alternatively, you could run the unit tests with nose:

nosetests  --with-coverage --cover-package=aquacroppy -v

Test Driven Development

The idea is to only write code that meets a specification. Generally speaking, the specifications are the tests.

Here is a sample workflow:

  • start with a test suite that passes
  • write a test for code that does not yet exist
  • run the test, (confirm that it fails)
  • write the minimal amount of code to get the test to pass
  • run the entire test suite again (confirm that new code doesn't break other parts of the application)
  • commit code repository
  • repeat

Building distribution

After checking out the repo, run the following command if you want to generate distributions:

python3 sdist bdist_wheel
