Faitout is an application giving you full access to a postgresql database for 30 minutes.

This is really handy to run tests against.

For example, for some of my applications, I run the tests locally against a in-memory sqlite database (very fast) and when I push, the tests are ran on jenkins but this time using faitout (a little slower, but much closer to the production environment). This setup allows me to find early potential error in the code that sqlite does not trigger.

Faitout is running the cloud of the Fedora infrastructure and since this cloud has just been rebuilt, we had to move it. While doing so, faitout got a nice new address:


So if you are using it, don't forget to update your URL ;-)
