[Cubicweb] qunit tests

Hi list,

I've been digging a bit why the qunit (javascript) tests fails in cw for a while. And the answer seems to be: CORS! yup

So I've tried to patch a bit the $CW/devtools/qunit.py file with something like:

diff --git a/devtools/qunit.py b/devtools/qunit.py
--- a/devtools/qunit.py
+++ b/devtools/qunit.py
@@ -116,6 +116,8 @@
     def setUp(self):
         super(QUnitTestCase, self).setUp()
+        self.vreg.config['access-control-allow-origin'] = '*'
+        self.vreg.config['access-control-allow-methods'] = ['GET','POST']
         self.test_queue = Queue()
         class MyQUnitResultController(QUnitResultController):
             tc = self

I've done this on 3.17 (the branch I was on in my dev environment when I started this task, but it does not matter for this problem), in which I grafted the recently added patches to support CORS in CW (pushed this morning on 3.19 branch).

I've made progress doing so, but I'm stuck by a javascript code doing an ajax request, which is preflighed by firefox (a headless firefox is launched to run these javascript tests)... and doing an OPTIONS HTTP request on a URL like file://path/to/file.html does not works so well.

As a consequence, these tests should be more heavily modified to make use of the started CW server to serve each and every http or javascript file. This would also have the advantage of not requiring a temporary directory anymore for these tests. Not sure how to make this for now, but I may try to do so in the next few days. Stay tuned!
