Test tools

- Doctest: searches for pieces of text that look like interactive Python sessions in docstrings.
- py.test: is a no-boilerplate alternative to Python’s standard unittest module.
- tox: for automating test environment management and testing against multiple interpreter configurations.
- mock:allows you to replace parts of your system under test with mock objects and make assertions about how they have been used.

Depending on where your code repository is hosted I would make the following choices:

from StackOverflow answer

- in-house --> Jenkins or gitlab-ci
- Github.com --> Travis-CI

Jenkins starup

docker run \
  --name jenkins_host \
  --rm \
  -u root \
  -e JENKINS_OPTS="--httpPort=8808" \
  -p 8808:8808 \
  -v jenkins-data:/var/jenkins_home \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
  -v "$HOME"/projects:/home/projects \

Access container using bash:

docker exec -it jenkins_host bash

Running jenkins jobs via command line

  • Build Triggers: Trigger builds remotely, Poll SCM
  • Show API token
  • issue command
    curl -X POST http://USER@palau:8808/job/JOBNAME/build
  • Obtain crumb (optional, if required)
    wget -q --auth-no-challenge --user xwu --password ??? --output-document - 'http://palau:8808/crumbIssuer/api/xml?xpath=concat(//crumbRequestField,":",//crumb)'
    curl -X POST http://USER@palau:8808/job/JOBNAME/build -H "CRUMB"

GitLab startup

docker run -d \
  --name gitlab-runner --restart always \
  -v /srv/gitlab-runner/config:/etc/gitlab-runner \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
