But I’m struggling a bit with the test environment. Which test framework is used? Or is it home grown? How to find out which validation routines are present? From the current module I’m creating the tests in I already know assertEqual, however, I don’t know it’s exact interface. Basically, the question is: How/where to get information about tests in Kallithea?

Most test classes derive from BaseTestCase, in
kallithea/tests/__init__.py, which in turn derives from
unittest.TestCase. The available assert functions are thus those from
Documentation is at: https://docs.python.org/2/library/unittest.html

The tests can be run either with 'nosetests' and 'py.test'. Tests can
thus also take advantage of features of these frameworks, although
there may not be a lot of tests that currently do.

Best regards,
