How to create functional tests for a Redmine 3 plugin

Added by David Côté-Tremblay 9 months ago

Hi ! I have created few Redmine 3 plugins and now I want to code the tests to ensure a better stability if possible.

But now I can't create anything that works, I tried to look at other plugin's tests, and I can't reproduce things to work in any way possible.

You guys can give me a simple canvas example of how to proceed ?

I actually created

redmine/plugins/redmine_timebank/test/functional/timebank_helper_test.rb
containing this :
require 'redmine'
require 'versions_controller'

class TimebankHelperTest < ActionController::TestCase
  fixtures :projects,
           :issues,
           :issue_statuses,
           :versions,
           :trackers,
           :projects_trackers,
           :issue_categories,
           :time_entries

  def setup
    @controller = VersionsController.new
    @request    = ActionController::TestRequest.new
    @response   = ActionController::TestResponse.new
    User.current = User.where(:admin => true).first
    @request.session[:user_id] = User.current.id
    @project = Project.find(1)
  end

  def test_timebank_table
    puts "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !" 
  end

end

But when I execute the command :

RAILS_ENV=test bin/rake redmine:plugins:test --trace

I get those errors :

** Execute redmine:plugins:test:functionals

    from /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/rake/rake_test_loader.rb:4:in `<main>'
rake aborted!

Seeing

uninitialized constant ActiveModel (NameError)
make me thinks that I need more depedencies, but I tough that I just need to require redmine to all import the rest.

Other plugins seems to import some thing like in their test/test_helper.rb :

require File.expand_path(File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../../../test/test_helper')

And this line into each testing file :

require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../test_helper'

Rake test says that none of those importing files could be found. Such as :

/usr/share/redmine/plugins/redmine_timebank/test/test_helper.rb:1:in `require': cannot load such file -- /usr/share/redmine/test/test_helper (LoadError)

Which stuff I do need to import into my functional test in order to get it works ?

Is this

test/test_helper
still exists ? Where can I find it ?

Thank you very much and have a great day !
