I'm looking into GitHub actions to automatically test the application when pushing.

  • Add coverage
  • Add icons for passed test, coverage on GitHub page

  • Adapt for OpenAtlas

I got coverage working but removed it again because showing a badge for coverage seem to include 3rd party services and hackish workarounds, maybe in another version.

GitHub actions for tests are implemented at the OpenAtlas website, see with the test icon at the top of
I managed to keep adaptions for GitHub out of the OpenAtlas website code and contain it in .github (except the linked icon in
Next step will be implementation in the main OpenAtlas application, which will require more advanced setup to e.g. include database operations.
