I agree that the quotes should probably be removed, but for reasons of clarity -- that is, people are likely to glance at the code and accidentally interpret the == as an eq due to seeing quotes. == does "true numerical comparison" whether or not there are quotes there; the string gets converted to a number for the ==, and it DWYM.

[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
[stevieb]: I don't write tests for the lower-level distributions (ie. ICs, sensors etc) within those distributions, I have all tests in a master distribution which encompasess all of the sub-modules
[choroba]: so you do kind of "integration testing" only
