Backport of CKAN 2.9 pytest plugin and fixtures to CAKN 2.8

Project description

CKAN 2.8 Pytest Plugin and Fixtures

This project backports the pytest environment for CKAN from CKAN 2.9 to CKAN 2.8. This allows CKAN extension developers to test CKAN plugins built to work with CKAN 2.8 as well as CKAN 2.9 or newer using a single unified test suite.

Installation & Usage

To use this in your project:

  • Add this library to your CKAN plugin project
  • Write your tests with pytest (you can use CKAN fixtures as described below)
  • Run pytest
  • When tested with CKAN 2.9 or newer, CKAN's built-in pytest plugin and fixtures will be used
  • When tested with older versions of CKAN, the code in pytest_ckan will be used instead

Adding to CKAN project

To use this plugin to test your CKAN extension, simply install this library to your development / testing environment:

pip install pytest-ckan

If you maintain a dev-requirements.txt or test-requirements.txt file you can add this library to it.

Running Pytest

To enable CKAN testing, simply add --ckan-ini=<path/to/test.ini> to your pytest command, for example:

pytest --ckan-ini=test.ini ckanext/yourextension/tests

Using CKAN Fixtures and Markers in Tests


For now, see CKAN 2.9's extension testing guide for some examples.
