To run tests locally on Linux, you need to have

  • the MariaDB ODBC connectors downloaded and in a specific directory (as per .travis.yml):

    curl -O https://downloads.mariadb.com/Connectors/odbc/connector-odbc-3.1.7/mariadb-connector-odbc-3.1.7-ga-debian-x86_64.tar.gz
    mkdir mariadb64; tar xfz mariadb-connector-odbc-3.1.7-ga-debian-x86_64.tar.gz -C mariadb64
    curl -O https://downloads.mariadb.com/Connectors/odbc/connector-odbc-3.1.7/mariadb-connector-odbc-3.1.7-ga-debian-i686.tar.gz
    mkdir mariadb32; tar xfz mariadb-connector-odbc-3.1.7-ga-debian-i686.tar.gz -C mariadb32MySQL
  • MariaDB listening on with root user root having an empty password. An easy way to do this is with docker:

    docker run -e MYSQL_ALLOW_EMPTY_PASSWORD=1  -it -p 3306:3306 mysql
  • the TRAVIS_BUILD_DIR env var set before running tests.

    env TRAVIS_BUILD_DIR=$(pwd) julia --project=@.

    (ODBC) pkg> test
