I have an umbrella project with several apps. One of its child applications needs to read a file before it starts. If it cannot find the file, it crashes.
This means that if I want to run
mix test, the child application has to find said file.
The problem here is that depending where I run
mix test, the command will either fail or succeed.
If I run
mix test inside the child’s application folder, the command will fail because the file it needs is not there.
If I runt he
mix test at the root of my umbrella app, then the command succeeds because it can find said file.
This means that I am cannot run
mix test while inside the child application folder, which is quite cumbersome. Sometimes I will open only that 1 application and do some changes there, other times I open the full umbrella project and make changes in multiple places.
Is it possible to have
mix test work both at the root of the umbrella project and inside its child app ?
This is the folder structure I have:
| └─── products.json
| └─── ...
│ │ ├───lib
│ │ │ └───store
│ │ └───test
│ │ └───...
I have the following in my
config/test.exs (root folder of umbrella project):
I guess I could simply duplicate the
products.json file everywhere in every app that needs to run a test using products, but I find this duplication rather unwise.
What is the preferred solution to this?
