Tests in the claircore module may use various helpers underneath the test directory. Using these packages outside of testing code is disallowed. Assert packages are disallowed; the go-cmp package is the only external package helper allowed.

Tests that use external resources or generate test fixtures should be annotated according to the integration package.


Tests using the integration package cache generated and downloaded assets into a directory named clair-testing inside the directory reported by os.UserCacheDir. For example, on a Linux system, the cache directory will be (in sh notation) ${XDG_CACHE_HOME-$HOME/.cache}/clair-testing.
