Contributing to Splash¶
Splash is free & open source. Development happens at GitHub: https://github.com/scrapinghub/splash
The recommended way to execute Splash testing suite is to use a special testing Docker container.
First, create a base Splash image named “splash”. If you’re not customizing Splash dependencies, and your changes are based on Splash master branch, you can use
docker pull scrapinghub/splash:master docker tag scrapinghub/splash:master splash
If you’ve changed Splash dependencies (Python-level or system-level) then you have to build Splash image from scratch. Run the following command from the source checkout:
docker build -t splash .
It can take a while (maybe half an hour).
Create a testing Docker image:
docker build -t splash-tests -f dockerfiles/tests/Dockerfile .
Testing Docker image is based on
splashdocker image, so you need to have an image called
splash- we created such image at step (1).
Run tests inside this testing image:
docker run -it splash-tests
You can also pass pytest command-line arguments in the command above. For example, you can select only a subset of tests to execute (SandboxTest test case in this example):
docker run -it splash-tests -k SandboxTest
If you’ve changed Splash source code and want to re-run tests, repeat steps (2) and (3). Step (2) should take much less time now. Repeating step (1) is only necessary if you’re adding new dependencies to Splash (Python or system-level), or if you want to update the base Splash image (e.g. after a recent rebase on Splash master).
There is a script in the root of Splash repository
runtests-docker.sh) which combines steps (2) and (3); you can use it
during development to run tests: change Splash source code or testing source
code, then run
./runtests-docker.sh from source checkout.
