All Go packages have their own test suite, which provides easy and portable tests with decent enough coverage.
test/ directory there is a set of end to end integration tests,
written usually in a combination of bash and Python 3.
They're not expected to be portable, as that gets impractical very quickly, but should be usable in most Linux environments.
They provide critical coverage and integration tests for real life scenarios, as well as interactions with other software (like Exim or Dovecot).
The tests depend on the following things being installed on the system (listed as Debian package, for consistency):
Some individual tests have additional dependencies, and the tests are skipped if the dependencies are not found:
t-02-eximExim interaction tests:
eximbinary available somewhere, but it doesn't have to be installed. There's a script
get-exim4-debian.shto get it from the archives.
t-11-dovecotDovecot interaction tests:
t-15-driusan_dkimDKIM integration tests:
dkimsign dkimverify dkimkeygenbinaries, from driusan/dkim (no Debian package yet).
t-18-haproxyHAProxy integration tests:
t-19-dkimpy: dkimpy integration tests:
For some tests, python >= 3.5 is required; they will be skipped if it's not available.
Most tests depend on the
environment variable being functional, and will be skipped if it isn't. This
works by default in most Linux systems, but note that the use of
systemd-resolved can prevent it from working properly.
Also in the
test/ directory there is a set of stress tests, which generate
load against chasquid to measure performance and resource consumption.
While they are not exhaustive, they are useful to catch regressions and track improvements on the main code paths.
Some Go packages also have instrumentation to run fuzz testing against them, using the Go native fuzzing support.
This is critical for packages that handle sensitive user input, such as authentication encoding, aliases files, or username normalization.
Command-line tool tests
Each command-line tool has their own set of tests, see the
test.sh file on
their corresponding directories.
test/Dockerfile can be used to set up a suitable isolated environment to
run the integration and stress tests.
This is very useful for automated tests, or running the integration tests in constrained or non supported environments.
There are two sets of automated tests which are run on every commit to upstream, and also weekly:
Cirrus CI, configured in the
.cirrus.ymlfile, runs Go tests on FreeBSD.
test/cover.sh script runs the integration tests in coverage mode, and
produces a code coverage report in HTML format, for ease of analysis.
The target is to keep coverage of the
chasquid binary above 90%.
