What does the hitch bootstrap script do?¶
The hitch bootstrap script is a simple script that you install by:
$ pip install hitch
This is a very simple script with no dependencies that has been tested on python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4.
It does the following 4 things:
- Initializes the .hitch directory - containing the virtualenv used for running the hitch tests (separate from the virtualenv used for running your application).
- Deletes the .hitch directory (hitch clean).
- Triggers test runs (hitch test [arguments] will run the command .hitch/virtualenv/bin/hitchtest [arguments]).
- Upgrades all the packages specified in hitchreqs.txt (the software installed in the virtualenv used to run your tests).
