Regression tests of RPC interface
Git subtree of https://github.com/jgarzik/python-bitcoinrpc. Changes to python-bitcoinrpc should be made upstream, and then pulled here using git subtree.
Base class for new regression tests.
Generally useful functions.
You can run a single test by calling
Run all possible tests with
-h, --help show this help message and exit --nocleanup Leave bitcoinds and test.* datadir on exit or error --noshutdown Don't stop bitcoinds after the test execution --srcdir=SRCDIR Source directory containing bitcoind/bitcoin-cli (default: ../../src) --tmpdir=TMPDIR Root directory for datadirs --tracerpc Print out all RPC calls as they are made
If you set the environment variable
PYTHON_DEBUG=1 you will get some debug output (example:
PYTHON_DEBUG=1 qa/pull-tester/rpc-tests.sh wallet).
A 200-block -regtest blockchain and wallets for four nodes is created the first time a regression test is run and is stored in the cache/ directory. Each node has 25 mature blocks (25*50=1250 BTC) in its wallet.
After the first run, the cache/ blockchain and wallets are copied into a temporary directory and used as the initial test state.
If you get into a bad state, you should be able to recover with:
rm -rf cache killall bitcoind
