DBItest Travis-CI Build Status AppVeyor Build Status CRAN_Status_Badge

This package provides a considerable set of test cases which you can easily incorporate in your DBI driver package.


Install from CRAN via


or the development version using


In your driver backage, add DBItest to the Suggests:. Then, enable the tests by running


from your package's directory. This enables testing using testthat (if necessary) and creates, among others, a file test-DBItest.R in the tests/testthat directory. Replace its entire contents by the following:

DBItest::make_context(Kazam(), NULL)

(This assumes that Kazam() returns an instance of your DBIDriver class. Additional arguments to dbConnect() are specified as named list instead of the NULL argument to make_context().)

The skip argument to test_all() allows specifying skipped tests.

See the package's documentation and the feature list for a description of the tests.
