Rake Tasks

Once you have completed instructions found in Installer Setup, you can then use the Rakefile contained at the top level of this repository (Rakefile). You will run rake task(s) for performing integrity checks on project inputs.

Using the Rakefile

Run rake -T to see the list of possible rake tasks. The -T is replaced with the chosen task.

$ rake -T
rake integrity_check_all         # Run tests for integrity_check_all
rake integrity_check_national    # Run tests for integrity_check_national
rake integrity_check_testing     # Run tests for integrity_check_testing
rake integrity_check_unit_tests  # Run tests for integrity_check_unit_tests
rake test:integration_tests      # Run tests for integration_tests
rake test:project_tests          # Run tests for project_tests
rake test:regenerate_osms        # Run tests for regenerate_osms
rake test:unit_tests             # Run tests for unit_tests
rake update_measures             # Run tests for update_measures

Integrity Checks

Run rake integrity_check_<project_name>, where <project_name> matches the project you are working with. If no rake task exists for the project you are working with, extend the list of integrity check rake tasks to accommodate your project by copy-pasting and renaming the integrity_check_national rake task found in the Rakefile. An example for running a project’s integrity checks is given below:

$ rake integrity_check_national
Checking for issues with project_national/Location Region...
Checking for issues with project_national/Location EPW...
Checking for issues with project_national/Vintage...
Checking for issues with project_national/Heating Fuel...
Checking for issues with project_national/Usage Level...

If the integrity check for a given project fails, you will need to update either your tsv files and/or the resources/options_lookup.tsv file. See Options Lookup for information about the options_lookup.tsv file.
