# QOwnNotes UI End2End Tests with the help of NixOS

Date: 2023-06-17

There are now basic End2End tests for QOwnNotes with the help of the NixOS (opens new window) Test System.

The tests will be run automatically when the QOwnNotes packages is updated in the Nix Store (opens new window).

You can look or contribute to the tests at qownnotes.nix (opens new window).

With the nixpkgs repository (opens new window) checked out you can run the tests easily isolated in a QEMU VM with the help of nix (opens new window):

nix-build . -A nixosTests.qownnotes
