[wp-hackers] WordPress Tests: Automated Hourly Test Runs

I've finally gotten around my hosts server issues and was able to get
all of the unit tests to run correctly. It is a fun little site to see
how many tests passed, how many failed, and how many errors there were,
except not in that order.
Green = Tests that Passed
Yellow = Errors
Red = Tests that failed
The tests run hourly, but takes about 30 minutes to complete, so look
for it every hour and a half. There is one other feature I've yet to
implement and I have to get the Tests working for WordPress Mu, (Which
will probably involve manually including the tests classes that are
known to work, however probably should just skip those, so that I don't
have to update the system when WordPress Mu 1.5 comes out).
Let me know what you think. You can't get the results of what tests had
errors or failed. I might add that later, but I have another project
that clones this one that will allow you to get that information. I
think it would be useful, but I'm unsure how much more time that would
add to the process and I would also have to write something that imports
that to a database. I find that boring.
http://wordpress.svn.dragonu.net/WPTests - Subversion Code. You won't
have access to the run-tests folder (hopefully this doesn't mean I can't
access it either. Meh, Can always add Allow directive later.)
Requires PHP5, host that allows running of extremely long processes.
Also requires PDO_SQLITE extension be loaded.
You have to set up the cron jobs.
Ignore WordPress2.php and WordPress3.php, they were there for batch
running of the tests. I might still support that, since it could be
useful, but it requires that the index be updated again.
http://wptests.dragonu.net - Demo web site. You don't have access to the
actual WordPress site, which is on trunk and updated hourly also. If you
want to see the live demo, then it is located somewhere else.
This is only a proof-of-concept and is by no means representative of
WordPress stability or usability in any way. The current test suite does
not cover the full code coverage of the WordPress library. Failed tests
does not necessary mean that WordPress will not run. Some of the failed
tests are feature requests and does not accurately test the original
intent or design of the function.
I offer no warranty to the code in WPTests repository and I can not
offer any support. Use with caution. License is the same original
WordPress Tests license, since major code portions are derived from the
Automattic WordPress Tests Suite code base.
Any additions to the testcase needs to be sent to Alex Shiels of
Automattic. He is pretty good with adding test cases.
Thanks. Finally, you know I've had so many projects bouncing around in
my head, I was thinking I would go insane. It is nice to finally have
one partially finished.
Oh yeah, Nikolay, this is what I was talking about, when I said I would
like something like this on wordpress.org. I do believe that with as
many tests as the Test Suite has now, that it is worth having an
