TG2 quickstart app test

Description (last modified by khorn) (diff)

We need to create some tests that quickstart a new app, test the quickstarted app, and then add some models, and controllers and test that. This will assure that the tg2 quickstart template continues to work.

TG1 has occasionally had quickstarted app issues, because there were not automated tests for these. And even when we found the issues, we didn't add tests because there was no infrastructure to test that.

  • Description modified (diff)

the following code will create a quickstarted project from within python code:

def quickstart_project(proj_name, pkg_name):
    dist = 'TurboGears2'
    group = 'paste.global_paster_command'
    name = 'quickstart'
    qscmd = pkg_resources.load_entry_point(dist, group, name)
    qs = qscmd('quickstart')
    args = [proj_name, '-p', pkg_name]

quickstart_project('qstest', 'qstestpkg')

hey, it's a start...

I now have some code that will quickstart a project, and run a request against it using webob Request/Response? objects.

Still needs some tailoring into an actual test framework, instead of a hacked up standalone script.

I've attached a patch which adds a nose "test package" to the tests directory. For these tests to work you currently need to run nosetests from the "test_quickstart" directory.

Outstanding issues:

  • I still need to figure out the best way to make sure the tests create the temporary quickstart project in the right place
  • teardown_package function does not clean up the temp directory quite all the way
  • one of the tests fails :( (see #1691)

Comments and improvements welcome.
