Running the build

To build this module use roboter.

$ npx roboter

Additionally to the unit tests, there are so-called story tests. To run them, use the following command:

$ npx roboter test-stories


Why do I get an Error loading extension section V3_ca message when running the story tests?

If you get the error Error loading extension section V3_ca when running the story tests, you have to edit your local OpenSSL configuration. You can find the configuration at /private/etc/ssl/openssl.cnf. In this file you have to add the following lines:

[ v3_ca ]
basicConstraints = critical,CA:TRUE
