pytest is used for unit testing. The tests are found in mido/test_*.py.
If you can please run tests in both Python 2 and Python 3 before you commit code. I’ve renamed the executables so I can just run pytest2 && pytest3 instead of remembering what the programs are called. (I think they were py.test and py.test-3.)
You can also set up a commit hook:
echo "pytest2 && pytest3" >.git/hooks/pre-commit chmod +x .git/hooks/pre-commit
This will run tests when you commit and cancel the commit if any tests fail.
Testing MIDI file support¶
Publishing (Release Checklist)¶
I am currently the only one with access to publishing on PyPI and readthedocs. This will hopefully change in the future.
First Time: Register With PyPI¶
rm -rf docs/_build && ./setup.py docs pytest2 && pytest3 check-manifest -v
(pip3 install check-manifest)
You can also test that the package installs by installing it in a virtualenv with pip and easy_install (Python 2 and 3) and importing it. This is a bit tedious. Perhaps there is a good way to automate it.
X.Y.Z is the version, for example 1.1.18 or 1.2.0.
- update version and date in docs/changes.rst
- update version in mido/__init__.py
- git commit -a -c “Bumped version to X.Y.Z.”
git tag X.Y.Z git push git push --tags
This has stopped working recently (late 2016) so instead I just go to the web page and upload from there.
Publish in PyPI:
python setup.py publish python setup.py bdist_wheel upload
