Framework for testing ebuilds.
Using Docker to provide consistent sandboxed environments, etest runs ebuilds
through several tests (implicitly and explicitly defined). Every ebuild gets
many containers created to run every testing scenario in isolation. Testing
scenarios are created from combinations of USE flags, features (test or no
test), as well as custom commands provided in the hints files.
This package is available in my overlay, alunduil, and can be installed on
Gentoo quite easily::
layman -a alunduil
This package is also stored in PyPI and can be installed the standard way::
pip install etest
The latest release available is:

``etest`` does require a running docker daemon but does not explicitly list it
as a requirement. It's not explicitly listed since the docker daemon doesn't
necessarily need to be local. Non-local docker daemons are not currently
etest requires a running docker daemon (either local or remote). If using
a remote docker instance you must set the DOCKER_HOST environment variable
with the hostname (just like compose).
To get started simply run ``etest`` in a directory that contains ebuilds in a
Alternatively, while still in a valid overlay directory or subdirectory, a list
of ebuilds can be passed to ``etest`` to run tests only against those ebuilds::
# Run all etest tests for all ebuild versions.
# Run all etest tests for the specified ebuild.
More advanced usage of this package is outlined in the built-in help::

etest is tested continuously by Travis-CI and running the tests is quite
python setup.py test
System tests can be run as well but require a working docker daemon as well as
approximately two and half hours::
