Writing Django TestsΒΆ

There is a custom test case included which you can use to write Django tests that need access to NodeModel instances. If properly configured, it will wipe out the Neo4j database in between each test. To configure it, you must set up a Neo4j instance with the cleandb extension installed. If your neo4j instance were configured at port 7475, and your cleandb install were pointing to /cleandb/secret-key, then you would put the following into your settings.py:

    'default': {
        'HOST': 'localhost',
        'PORT': 7475,
        'ENDPOINT': '/db/data',
        'OPTIONS': {
            'CLEANDB_URI': '/cleandb/secret-key',
            'username': 'lorem',
            'password': 'ipsum',

With that set up, you can start writing test cases that inherit from neo4django.testcases.NodeModelTestCase and run them as you normally would through your Django test suite.
