Running the TestsΒΆ

A Makefile is included to take care of setting up a virtualenv for running tests. All you need to do is run:

$ make test

To change the Python version used to run the tests (default is Python 2.7), change the PYTHON_MAJOR and PYTHON_MINOR variables at the top of the Makefile.

You can run on all supported versions with:

$ make test-all

Individual tests can be run using using a command with the format:

nosetests <filename>:ClassName.func_name


$ source env/bin/activate
$ nosetests tests/

Alternately, if you push changes to your fork on Github, Travis will run the tests for your branch automatically.

A Tox config file is also provided so you can test against multiple python versions locally (2.6, 2.7, 3.3, and 3.4)
