Integration tests#


The tests are mostly full integration tests. They are testing the whole system and the interactions between the subsystems.

Messages will get published to the MQTT bus by shelling out to mosquitto_pub. After that, InfluxDB will be checked to contain the right data and Grafana will be checked to be accurately provisioned.

While the shell-out can well be optimized for efficiency, it is also pleasant to have a full scenario using regular command line tools covered here.



Install some needed packages:

apt-get install python3-venv python3-dev docker-compose mosquitto-clients

Foundation services#

The test suite will assume running instances of Mosquitto, InfluxDB, MongoDB and Grafana and fire up an in-process instance of Kotori to complement these. Please have a look at Run through Docker in order to get the complementing services up and running in a quick and ad hoc manner.

Run Mosquitto, InfluxDB, MongoDB and Grafana as Docker containers:

make start-foundation-services


Run all tests:

make test

Run specific tests with maximum verbosity:

export PYTEST_OPTIONS="--verbosity=3 --log-level DEBUG --log-cli-level DEBUG --capture=no"

# Run tests starting with "test_tasmota".
pytest test ${PYTEST_OPTIONS} -k test_tasmota

# Run tests marked with "mqtt".
pytest test ${PYTEST_OPTIONS} -m mqtt

# Run tests marked with "tasmota", "homie" or "airrohr".
pytest test ${PYTEST_OPTIONS} -m 'tasmota or homie or airrohr'

To see available markers, type:

pytest --markers
