Testing

If you're using ent.Client in your unit-tests, you can use the generated enttest package for creating a client and auto-running the schema migration as follows:

package main
import (
"testing"
"<project>/ent/enttest"
_ "github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3"
)
func TestXXX(t *testing.T) {
client := enttest.Open(t, "sqlite3", "file:ent?mode=memory&cache=shared&_fk=1")
defer client.Close()
// ...
}

In order to pass functional options to Open, use enttest.Option:

func TestXXX(t *testing.T) {
opts := []enttest.Option{
enttest.WithOptions(ent.Log(t.Log)),
enttest.WithMigrateOptions(migrate.WithGlobalUniqueID(true)),
}
client := enttest.Open(t, "sqlite3", "file:ent?mode=memory&cache=shared&_fk=1", opts...)
defer client.Close()
// ...
}
