buildSupport: withTests nixpkgs testing base function

The idea is that you can test derivations without having to rebuild if a test
fails or needing a VM-test.

foo = withTests { t1 = ''exit 1''; } fooDrv
will build fooDrv, but fail the build of foo because test t1 exits ≠ 0.

This is the base building block for a nixpkgs testing framework with no nixos
parent fabafb32
{ runCommand, lib }:
/* Takes a derivation and an attribute set of
* test names to tests.
* Tests are shell fragments which test the
* derivation and should result in failure if
* the functionality is not as expected. */
withTests = tests: drv: let
drvOutputs = drv.outputs or ["out"];
assert (drv ? drvAttrs); # not a derivation!
runCommand {
# we inherit all attributes in order to replicate
# the original derivation as much as possible
outputs = drvOutputs;
passthru = drv.drvAttrs;
# depend on each test (by putting in builder context)
tests = lib.mapAttrsToList
(name: testScript:
runCommand "${}-test-${name}" {} ''
touch "$out"
# the outputs of the original derivation are replicated
# by creating a symlink
(lib.concatMapStrings (output: ''
ln -s ${lib.escapeShellArg drv.${output}} "${"$"}${output}"
'') drvOutputs);
