Measuring test coverage¶
Sandeep suggested to undo my change about the test_suite in
inv cov. But that doesn’t seem to solve the problem.
inv cov in says “No data collected” and does not run any tests.
When I run
TestLoader().discover() from the project’s root_dir
as it was before, then it just runs two tests
lino.utils.test.DocTest, which fail because that’s not the
way they are designed to get called).
Sandeep, do you understand why I did this? The standard way to run a project’s test suite is to invoke python setup.py test. The “inv test” command is just a shortcut for this. And “inv cov” should also run that same command. Currently it builds its own test collector, but actually we should try to find out whether we can invoke “python setup.py test” without spawning a subprocess.
UnicodeError in Voga and Welfare caused by #36¶
#822 and #825 seem similar. I now found a fix (or at
least a temporary workaround) for #825 : it gets fixed by
__unicode__(). I did a checkin with that change.
Hamza, please check whether #822 also gets fixed by this
please look for other models whose
__unicode__() has been
__str__(). I guess that the future script did
this. And please investigate whether it is a good solution (I fear
that my current workround will cause failures in Py3). And even if it
works under Py3, then I’d like to understand why the future script
wants to do that change.
