PyLucid important component is the plugin system. Many features realised as a plugin. So we need a way for testing the plugin API.

Since changeset:1593 there exist a special test
plugin used in the unittest ./tests/

Note: This plugin should never be installed/activated in a productive environment!

how it works

The test plugin stored in "tests/unittest_plugin/". In tests.__init__.init_unittest_plugin() the files of the plugin copy into "./PyLucid/plugins_external/unittest_plugin/" and installed into the database.

After the unittest the routine in tests.__init__.remove_unittest_plugin() would be delete the test plugin from plugins_external directory.

The plugin can be used in every unittest.
