testing the community-calendar REST API

completed by: Namanyay

mentors: eMBee

the community-calendar project gets events from a REST API.

this API needs to be tested, so that we can verify that things still work if the API is changed.

your task is to pick a testing framework and write tests that verify the APIs behavior.

(this task should be done after the API is documented by another task. you can then focus on testing the documented API parts)

a suitable testing framework is probably because community-calendar is already developed with node.js, so this can just be added to the toolset.

other frameworks are discussed here: other helpful tools to test manually are discussed here:

you can find code examples in theĀ community calendar code and in the techgrind code

you can also explore the techgrind site

you do not need to test the whole API, but you should focus on login, getting, submitting and updating events, and documents.

the tests should be released under the GPLv2 or later, so that they can be included with the original code.

if you have questions you can reach me on irc on the freenode network in channel #fossasia
