Running the Test Suite¶
To run the test-suite, please proceed as follows.
If you don’t have a git clone of PyInstaller, first fetch the current development head, either using pip, …:
pip download --no-deps https://github.com/pyinstaller/pyinstaller/archive/develop.zip unzip develop.zip cd pyinstaller-develop/
… or using git:
git clone https://github.com/pyinstaller/pyinstaller.git cd pyinstaller
Then setup a fresh virtualenv for running the test suite in and install all required tools:
pip install --user virtualenv virtualenv /tmp/venv . /tmp/venv/bin/activate pip install -r tests/requirements-tools.txt
To run a single test use e.g.:
py.test tests/unit -k test_collect_submod_all_included
Run the test-suite:
py.test tests/unit tests/functional
This only runs the tests for the core functionality and some packages from the Python standard library.
To get better coverage, including many of the available hooks, you need to download the Python packages to be tested. For this please run:
pip install -U -r tests/requirements-libraries.txt py.test tests/unit tests/functional
