Djrill is tested on Travis against several combinations of Django and Python versions. (Full list in .travis.yml.)

Most of the included tests verify that Djrill constructs the expected Mandrill API calls, without actually calling Mandrill or sending any email. So these tests don’t require a Mandrill API key, but they do require mock and six (pip install mock six).

To run the tests, either:

python -Wall test


python -Wall

If you set the environment variable MANDRILL_TEST_API_KEY to a valid Mandrill test API key, there are also a handful of integration tests which will run against the live Mandrill API. (Otherwise these live API tests are skipped.)
