To utilize test splitting with CircleCI we require that you pass in a list of tests to run. However, with how you execute tests with Django you are unable to simply
glob the tests and pass them in.
Someone shared the issues they ran into, and a solution, in the following Discuss post:
Using the above, here is a quick example of how to accomplish test splitting:
- run: command: | # get test files while ignoring __init__ files TESTFILES=$(circleci tests glob "catalog/tests/*.py" | sed 's/\S\+__init__.py//g') echo $TESTFILES | tr ' ' '\n' | sort | uniq > circleci_test_files.txt cat circleci_test_files.txt TESTFILES=$(circleci tests split --split-by=timings circleci_test_files.txt) # massage filepaths into format manage.py test accepts TESTFILES=$(echo $TESTFILES | tr "/" "." | sed 's/.py//g') echo $TESTFILES pipenv run python manage.py test --verbosity=2 $TESTFILES
