Getting the source¶
The HappyBase source code repository is hosted on GitHub:
To grab a copy, use this:
$ git clone https://github.com/wbolster/happybase.git
Setting up a development environment¶
Setting up a development environment from a Git branch is easy:
$ cd /path/to/happybase/ $ mkvirtualenv happybase (happybase)$ pip install -r test-requirements.txt (happybase)$ pip install -e .
Running the tests¶
The tests use the nose test suite. To execute the tests, run:
(happybase)$ make test
Test outputs are shown on the console. A test code coverage report is saved in coverage/index.html.
If the Thrift server is not running on localhost, you can specify these environment variables (both are optional) before running the tests:
(happybase)$ export HAPPYBASE_HOST=host.example.org (happybase)$ export HAPPYBASE_PORT=9091
To test the HBase 0.90 compatibility mode, use this:
(happybase)$ export HAPPYBASE_COMPAT=0.90
To test the framed Thrift transport mode, use this:
(happybase)$ export HAPPYBASE_TRANSPORT=framed
