Tests are intended to be run either on development machines (NODE_ENV=development) or on a test server such as circleci (NODE_ENV=circleci). This documentation concentrates on the development testing experience.

Setup and Running Tests

We use Mocha for unit-testing and Cypress for end-to-end (e2e) testing. More details on setting up your local machine for tests can be found at, https://github.com/opencollective/opencollective-frontend/blob/main/docs/e2e.md.

How to debug when GitHub is challenging the oAuth process?

  • Run the api with the GITHUB_CLIENT_ID and GITHUB_CLIENT_SECRET env variables (you can find them here).

  • Run the website, go to http://localhost:3000/opensource/apply and go through the flow. Use the login opencollectivetest and the password that is stored in 1Password.
