We're using py.test. You can run all of the tests on all supported python releases using make test. If you don't have that much time, try make quicktest, which runs py.test directly.

API Requests

The tests make use of vcrpy, which records all requests to the SocialHub APIs into the socialhub/cassette directory. As long as you don't add any, this enables you to run the existing tests without having access to these (private) APIs.

To delete the recorded data and get fresh version, run the following command. Inspect the resuling cassettes for secret leaks.

$ make recordvcr

Releasing a new version

Assuming you have been handed the required credentials, a new version can be released as follows.

  3. tag the resulting commit as v1.2.3
