Running UI tests

1. Running the full test suite

Note: You need Pipenv, as mentioned in the core's documentation section.

In the trezor-firmware checkout, in the root of the monorepo, install the environment:

pipenv sync

And run the tests:

pipenv run make -C core test_emu_ui

2. Running tests manually

Install the pipenv environment as outlined above. Then switch to a shell inside the environment:

pipenv shell

If you want to test against the emulator, run it in a separate terminal:

./core/emu.py

Now you can run the test suite with pytest from the root directory:

pytest tests/device_tests --ui=test

If you wish to check that all test cases in fixtures.json were used set the --ui-check-missing flag. Of course this is meaningful only if you run the tests on the whole device_tests folder.

pytest tests/device_tests --ui=test --ui-check-missing

You can also skip tests marked as skip_ui.

pytest tests/device_tests --ui=test -m "not skip_ui"

Updating Fixtures ("Recording")

Short version:

pipenv run make -C core test_emu_ui_record

Long version:

The --ui pytest argument has two options:

  • record: Create screenshots and calculate theirs hash for each test. The screenshots are gitignored, but the hash is included in git.
  • test: Create screenshots, calculate theirs hash and test the hash against the one stored in git.

If you want to make a change in the UI you simply run --ui=record. An easy way to proceed is to run --ui=test at first, see what tests fail (see the Reports section below), decide if those changes are the ones you expected and then finally run the --ui=record and commit the new hashes.

Also here we provide an option to check the fixtures.json file. Use --ui-check-missing flag again to make sure there are no extra fixtures in the file:

pytest tests/device_tests --ui=record --ui-check-missing

Reports

Tests

Each --ui=test creates a clear report which tests passed and which failed. The index file is stored in tests/ui_tests/reporting/reports/test/index.html, but for an ease of use you will find a link at the end of the pytest summary.

On CI this report is published as an artifact. You can see the latest master report here.

Master diff

In the ui tests folder you will also find a Python script report_master_diff.py, which creates a report where you find which tests were altered, added, or removed relative to master. This useful for Pull Requests.

This report is available as an artifact on CI as well. You can find it by visiting the "core unix ui changes" job in your pipeline - browse the artifacts and open master_diff/index.html.
