How to run the test suite?

This paragraph briefly describes how to run the test suite. This is useful for contributors, for packagers but also for users who wants to check their environment.


You can make a virtualenv. I like pew for that because the API is easier.

The first time, you need to make a virtualenv

pew mkproject bibtexparser
pip install -r requirements.txt
python install

If you already have a virtualenv, you can use workon

pew workon bibtexparser


The advantage of Tox is that you can build and test the code against several versions of python. Of course, you need tox to be installed on your system. The configuration file is tox.ini, in the root of the project. There, you can change the python versions.

tox # and nothing more :)
