ebuild testing framework base image
Full Description

Description

Framework for testing ebuilds.

Using Docker to provide consistent sandboxed environments, etest runs ebuilds
through several tests (implicitly and explicitly defined). Every ebuild gets
many containers created to run every testing scenario in isolation. Testing
scenarios are created from combinations of USE flags, features (test or no
test), as well as custom commands provided in the hints files.

Installation

This package is available in my overlay, alunduil, and can be installed on
Gentoo quite easily::

layman -a alunduil
emerge app-portage/etest

This package is also stored in PyPI and can be installed the standard way::

pip install etest

The latest release available is:

.. image:: https://badge.fury.io/py/etest.png
:target: http://badge.fury.io/py/etest

etest does require a running docker daemon but does not explicitly list it
as a requirement. It's not explicitly listed since the docker daemon doesn't
necessarily need to be local. Non-local docker daemons are not currently
supported.

Using etest

.. note::
etest requires a running docker daemon (either local or remote). If using
a remote docker instance you must set the DOCKER_HOST environment variable
with the hostname (just like compose).

To get started simply run etest in a directory that contains ebuilds in a
valid overlay.

Alternatively, while still in a valid overlay directory or subdirectory, a list
of ebuilds can be passed to etest to run tests only against those ebuilds::

# Run all etest tests for all ebuild versions.
cd /var/lib/layman/alunduil
etest app-portage/etest

# Run all etest tests for the specified ebuild.
cd app-portage/etest
etest etest-9999.ebuild

More advanced usage of this package is outlined in the built-in help::

etest --help

Developing etest

If you would prefer to clone this package directly from git or assist with
development, the URL is https://github.com/alunduil/etest.

etest is tested continuously by Travis-CI and running the tests is quite
simple::

flake8
python setup.py test

System tests can be run as well but require a working docker daemon as well as
approximately two and half hours::

nosetests test_etest/test_system

The current status of the build is:

:target: http://travis-ci.org/alunduil/etest
