> To run all tests before a commit run:

python -m grass.gunittest.main --location nc_spm_grass7 --location-type nc

inside GRASS session. nc_spm_grass7 should be the name of NC sample
location in your current GISDBASE (grassdata). The command will also work
in any subdirectory.

To run just one test file, cd to testsuite directory with the test file and

python test_something.py

inside GRASS session. This will use the current location and mapset.

To see the results of tests which currently run once a day on a server, see:


The most interesting is the report for nc location:


Which currently ends with:
2014-11-26 03:01:42    62954    nc_spm_08_grass7    85%    98%
2014-11-27 03:01:47    63174    nc_spm_08_grass7    38%    80%
2014-11-28 03:01:44    63217    nc_spm_08_grass7    39%    81%

The recent report for individual test files is:


When running the test yourself, you will get the same output as you can see
online for one day. So, your index.html should look like:


You will find this index.html file in a testreport directory after running
the tests using `python -m grass.gunittest.main ...`.
