Testing

We follow the BDD-style testing principles and are leveraging the Ginkgo framework along with Gomega as matcher library. In order to execute the existing tests, you can use

$ make test

There is an additional command for analyzing the code coverage of the tests. Ginkgo will generate standard Golang cover profiles which will be translated into a HTML file by the Go Cover Tool. Another command helps you to clean up the filesystem from the temporary cover profile files and the HTML report:

$ make test-cov
$ open gardener.coverage.html
$ make test-clean

Dependency management

We are using Dep as depedency management tool. In order to add a new package dependency to the project, you can perform dep ensure -add <PACKAGE> or edit the Gopkg.toml file and append the package along with the version you want to use as a new [[constraint]].

Updating dependencies

The Makefile contains a rule called revendor which performs a dep ensure -update and a dep prune command. This updates all the dependencies to its latest versions (respecting the constraints specified in the Gopkg.toml file). The command also installs the packages which do not yet exist in the vendor folder but are specified in the Gopkg.toml (in case you have added new ones).

$ make revendor
The depencendies are installed into the vendor folder which should be added to the VCS.

:warning: Make sure that you test the code after you have updated the dependencies!
