Running Tests

Running Unit Tests

Unit tests do not make API calls to Braintree and do not require Braintree credentials. You can run this project's unit tests by calling rake (or rails -R spec) on the command line.

Running Integration Tests

Integration tests make API calls to Braintree and require that you set up your Braintree credentials. You can run this project's integration tests by adding your sandbox API credentials to .env and calling rake spec:integration (or rails spec:integration) on the command line.

Running All Tests

You can run both unit and integrations tests by calling rake spec (or rails spec) on the command line.

Testing Transactions

Sandbox transactions must be made with sample credit card numbers, and the response of a call is dependent on the amount of the transaction.

Pro Tips

  • Run rails s -b when launching Rails server to listen on all interfaces.
