Hi Glyph et al.
I'm having a little trouble running (or indeed, understanding) the unit
testing infrastructure. This is in relation to the patch I mentioned
previously that allows the event to be passed along with the node to event
I've read through
You mentioned "trial", but the pages above refer to "nit". From what I've
worked, trial is the general purpose testing infrastructure and nit is a
Nevow-specific thing that actually requires a browser (rather than using a
standalone JS interpreter, say). Does trial use nit, nit use trial, or are
they completely separate?
(And I've got no idea how "nose" fits into all this).
I can see that Nevow/nevow/js/Nevow/Test/TestWidget.js contains exactly the
sort of tests that I want to extend, just like you said. I intend to leave
the existing tests alone (to prove that passing and event to methods that
aren't expecting events still work) and a new test that receives and examines
the event (to prove that the event getting passed is indeed the type, etc, I
I've managed to run the nevow tests by running "nit nevow" and pointing
Firefox to http://localhost:8080.
However, when I run open Firebug and go to the "Script" tab I would expect to
see "Nevow.Test" as an option in the dropdown list of modules. However, it
looks like this isn't included at all, which means that Firefox hasn't loaded
it because the test "page" doesn't include it.
It occurred to me that it's possible that it's "pushed" to the browser
dynamically, but it's not available even after the tests have run. At that
point I'd definitely expect all relevant JS to have been loaded.
(The list of JS files is: Divmod, Divmod.Base|Defer|Inspect|Runtime|
Runtime.Tests, Nevow, Nevow.Athena, Nevow.Athena.Test, Nevow.Athena.Tests,
Is the JS code you pointed me to not run by the "nit nevow" tests? If not, how
can I run that test code?
 Plus any other tests that fail as a result of the changes; for example,
Nevow/nevow/test/test_athena.py:test_handlerMacro() checks a serialized
athena handler against a hardcoded string; if _handlerFormat is changed, this
will fail and need updating.
