Testing the backend

Once you setup Prophecies from the sources, simply launch Pytest with this shortcut:

make test-back

This command triggers the testing process, where make is a build automation tool used to manage tasks like compiling the code or running tests, and test-back is a target defined within the Makefile.

Upon execution, Pytest will begin to run all the specified tests in your test suite. You can monitor the output in your terminal to check the progress of the tests. If all goes well and your code passes all the tests, you should see a success message indicating that everything is working as intended. Any failed tests will be reported accordingly, allowing you to make the necessary adjustments.
