Running tests


Commento uses Go for the backend and we include a comprehensive test suite (not complete yet, we're working on it) along with the source code, as is the convention in Go code. To run all backend tests, you need a working PostgreSQL server running. For the rest of this tutorial, we'll assume you've setup one and set the corresponding address in COMMENTO_POSTGRES (see our documentation on configuring Commento for more details.

Set up COMMENTO_POSTGRES with a database name that's different from the one you're using for production. Tests will clean the database and delete all data. You shouldn't be running tests on production machines in any case, but it's worth mentioning.

To execute all tests automatically, run the following commands from the source directory.

$ cd api
$ go test -v

This will be very noisy (especially so if you have errors). If you just want to know if all tests passed, remove the -v flag.
