request for a development script to run only a specific test through browser
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

hello. i am making tatar script converter. i have made tests now and it has become easier to work. i am saying about test in \mediawiki\tests\phpunit\languages\classes\ . i am working in windows. i open command line window in \mediawiki\tests\phpunit\ , and type "chcp 65001" and "C:\xampp\php\php-cgi.exe phpunit.php languages", and test runs, but there are some disadvantages:

  1. i count till 30 before test completes and my test is only a little dot among nearly 1000 dots here.
  2. and some letters are not shown (only squares, ie they have not fonts in lucida console font).

i would like if somebody writes a script to run my test from browser window. i think i can make such test.php, but i cannot reuse the already made class for tatar language, can only copy tests between the class and my script manually.

  1. and also i will need to make diff as it works in the test.

i think i can do that after some time of learning of the test scripts, but maybe somebody can make that easily.

Thanks for taking the time to report this!
I'm not sure what you are exactly requesting here or why you filed this task in Phabricator specifically - this sounds like a support request to me what is the best approach to make the code work as expected? If you're looking for general technical support on unit testing I'd recommend asking on https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/qa , or https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikitech-l if the topic is broader.

i get the tests folder with mediawiki. so it is part of mediawiki. and if i read "README" of it, i do not see that running it through browser is possible. probably it is not possible, and making a new script is needed. though running only 1 of the language tests maybe is already possible with usage of command line arguments (but also probably it is not possible because there is nothing in readme). i should ask about that in some mailing lists. any way README should be updated/edited with instructions, if that things are already possible.

I'd recommend to bring this up on https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/qa and see which actionable items you get out of the discussion. :)

Seems to be discussed in https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-October/083566.html , closing this Phabricator task as it's not a request with a clearly defined technical scope.
