# Running the tests¶

The tests are written assuming they will be run with pytest using the Astropy custom test runner. To set up a Conda environment to run the full set of tests, see the environment-dev.yml environment file. Once the dependencies are installed, you can run the tests two ways:

1. By importing gala:

import gala
gala.test()

2. By cloning the gala repository and running:

python setup.py test
