Developer guide

Setup developer environment

  • sudo aptitude install git gcc python-dev bacula-console
  • git clone almir
  • cd almir
  • cp buildout.d/templates/ buildout.cfg
  • vim buildout.cfg # configure variables
  • python
  • bin/buildout
  • bin/pserve –reload development.ini

Running Python tests

Easy as:

$ bin/nosetests

By default it will run against sqlite fixture, you can also tell nosetests to use mysql fixture (you need to import sql manually for now):

$ DATABASE="mysql" bin/nosetests

Or just specify sqlalchemy engine:

$ ENGINE="sqlite:////var/lib/bacula/bacula.db" bin/nosetests

Running Javascript tests

Install and configure phantomjs (webkit headless testing):

$ sudo apt-get install libqtwebkit-dev
$ git clone git:// && cd phantomjs
$ qmake-qt4 && make
$ sudo cp bin/phantomjs /usr/local/bin/

Run tests:

$ cd ../almir
$ ./
