Running Tests

$ python -m test.api_test

Set up environment configuration

We use Python's os and a .env file to manage environment variables in development and test environments. See the list of required environment variables in the .env.example file in the root directory.

To optionally set values for testing, make a copy of .env.example and name it .env.

cp .env.example .env

# Note:
# If using direnv, you can just use it as a `.envrc` file and not have to `source` it manually.

# Using your favorite editor, update the values of the environment variables in `.env` and then

source .env
