i am sorry to have to release pytest-couchdbkit 0.5.1 so early
i noticed that 0.4 broke normal testing way too late,
which is fixed now
0.5.1 was necessary due to noticing a typo in MANIFEST.in right after
the 0.5 release which silently dropped the tests from the release
as a little gem i added support for pytest-xdist
to pytest-couchdbkit, so happy parallel testing.
pytest-couchdbkit is a simple pytest extension that manages test databases
for your couchdbkit using apps.
In order to use it, you only need to set the ini option
`couchdbkit_suffix` to something fitting your app.
Additionally you may use `couchdbkit_backend` to select
the gevent/eventlet backends.
To setup couchapps before running the tests,
there is the `pytest_couchdbkit_push_app(server, dbname)` hook
It can be used to create a pristine database,
which is replicated into each test database.
The provided funcarg `couchdb` will be a freshly flushed database
named `pytest_` + couchdbkit_suffix,
additionally, after each test item,
the database will be dumped to tmpdir.join(couchdb.dump)
which is a simple file having entries in the format::
number(\d+) + "\r\n" + number bytes + "\r\n"
* the db info
* raw attachment data following the document
Attachments are ordered by name,
so they can be reassigned to their metadata on loading.
The dump format is meant to be human-readable.
* fs fixtures (like couchapp)
* code fixtures
* dump fixtures
* comaring a db to sets of defined fixtures
from 0.5 to 0.5.1
- fix MANIFEST.in
from 0.4 to 0.5
- fix breaking testruns that dont actually use it
- add a lot of tests i should have done before 0.4
