Test RAML API definition

Project description

# `Ra`
[![Build Status](](

Ra is a test suite generator and helper library for testing APIs described
in [RAML](

Out of the box, Ra provides a basic, automated test suite to test the routes
declared in the RAML document. It provides test helpers for augmenting these
with custom tests to test application-specific logic, side effects, etc.

Ra is primarily designed to provide testing support for
[ramses]( and
[nefertari]( applications, but can
be used with any WSGI-conformant, RAML-described API.

It currently depends on pytest but may be adapted for other test frameworks
in the future. It works best using WebTest but doesn't require it.

## Name

Ra was the god of the sun, the most important god in ancient Egypt.

## Try it (dev)

Run the test suite:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ py.test

Check out the example:

$ cd examples/ramses-test
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ py.test

The example RAML at `examples/ramses-test/api.raml` and the test file
`examples/ramses-test/tests/` should be helpful to reference.

See the docs in `docs/`, and the `api.raml` and `tests/` in
