Integration tests


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

The test suite will assume running instances of Mosquitto, Grafana, InfluxDB and MongoDB and fire up an in-process instance of Kotori to complement these.

Then, messages are 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 shellout can well be optimized for efficiency, it is also pleasant to have a full scenario using regular command line tools covered here.


make virtualenv-dev


make test


make pytest
make nosetest

or run specific tests with maximum verbosity:

export PYTEST_OPTIONS="--verbose --verbose --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'
