Testing


The entrypoint for testing any integration is the command ddev test, which accepts an arbitrary number of integrations as arguments.

Under the hood, we use tox for environment management and pytest as our test framework.

Discovery

Use the --list/-l flag to see what environments are available, for example:

$ ddev test postgres envoy -l
postgres:
    py27-10
    py27-11
    py27-93
    py27-94
    py27-95
    py27-96
    py38-10
    py38-11
    py38-93
    py38-94
    py38-95
    py38-96
    format_style
    style
envoy:
    py27
    py38
    bench
    format_style
    style

You'll notice that all environments for running tests are prefixed with pyXY, indicating the Python version to use. If you don't have a particular version installed (for example Python 2.7), such environments will be skipped.

The second part of a test environment's name corresponds to the version of the product. For example, the 11 in py38-11 implies tests will run against version 11.x of PostgreSQL.

If there is no version suffix, it means that either:

  1. the version is pinned, usually set to pull the latest release, or
  2. there is no concept of a product, such as the disk check

Usage

Explicit

Passing just the integration name will run every test environment e.g. executing ddev test envoy will run the environments py27, py38, and style.

You may select a subset of environments to run by appending a : followed by a comma-separated list of environments.

For example, executing:

ddev test postgres:py38-11,style envoy:py38

will run, in order, the environments py38-11 and style for the PostgreSQL check and the environment py38 for the Envoy check.

Detection

If no integrations are specified then only integrations that were changed will be tested, based on a diff between the latest commit to the current and master branches.

The criteria for an integration to be considered changed is based on the file extension of paths in the diff. So for example if only Markdown files were modified then nothing will be tested.

The integrations will be tested in lexicographical order.

Coverage

To measure code coverage, use the --cov/-c flag. Doing so will display a summary of coverage statistics after successful execution of integrations' tests.

$ ddev test tls -c

Style

To run only the style checking environments, use the --style/-s shortcut flag.

You may also only run the formatter environment using the --format-style/-fs shortcut flag. The formatter will automatically resolve the most common errors caught by the style checker.

Advanced

There are a number of shortcut options available that correspond to pytest options.

  • --marker/-m (pytest: -m) - Only run tests matching a given marker expression e.g. ddev test elastic:py38-7.2 -m unit
  • --filter/-k (pytest: -k) - Only run tests matching a given substring expression e.g.ddev test redisdb -k replication
  • --debug/-d (pytest: --log-level=debug -s) - Set the log level to debug
  • --pdb (pytest: --pdb -x) - Drop to PDB on first failure, then end test session
  • --verbose/-v (pytest: -v --tb=auto) - Increase verbosity (can be used additively) and disables shortened tracebacks

You may also pass arguments directly to pytest using the --pytest-args/-pa option. For example, you could re-write -d as -pa "--log-level=debug -s".
