Running Specific Test in django-nose

Since I used django-nose for my project. Django-nose runner cannot behave like default django test runner.

Following command will not work in django-nose test runner.

# Run all the tests found within the 'animals' package
$ ./manage.py test appname

# Run just one test case
$ ./manage.py test appname.tests.TestCaseName

# Run just one test method
$ ./manage.py test appname.tests.TestCaseName.test_function_name

Because django-nose structured all the test in one package called tests following below.

   |- __init__.py
   |- test_views.py
   |- test_forms.py
   |- test_endpoints.py
   |- test_utils.py

Here is the alternative to run specific task in django-nose.

# Run all the tests found within the 'animals' package
$ ./manage.py test appname

# Run just one test case
$ ./manage.py test appname.tests.test_script:TestCaseName

# Run just one test method
$ ./manage.py test appname.tests.test_script:TestCaseName.test_function_name

Add HTTP_REFERER in Django Test Client

I’m testing my views in my django project and got “None” error because my view returning redirect to “HTTP_REFERER” that I get from HTTP Header.

In django test client apparently all request does not contain any HTTP header.
Here is my views:

class DeleteCategoryView(TemplateView):

    def post(self, request, *args, **kwargs):
        return redirect(request.META.get('HTTP_REFERER'))

And here is how I add “HTTP_REFERER” in my test client.

def test_delete_view(self):
    url = reverse('category:url-adm-delete')
    redirect_url = reverse('category:url-adm-category')
    response = self.client.post(path=url, data={'id': instance.pk}, HTTP_REFERER=redirect_url)
    self.assertRedirects(response, index_url)
