MongoTest 0.1.2

A Python library to ease testing applications that rely on MongoDB as a datastore

MongoDB Test Util

This library provides a handful of useful functionality for easing the testing
of systems that rely on *MongoDB* as a datastore

Start and Teardown mongod

For most use cases, you can use this snippet to startup a ``mongod`` instance
for your test environment::

from mongo_test.handlers import startup_handle

To tear an instance down if one exists::

from mongo_test.handlers import teardown_handle


*MongoTest* allows you to specify fixtures in *yaml*, with a few conveniences.
A sample yaml file would look something like::

collection: users
drop: true
_id: !oid 1
username: idbentley
first_name: Ian
last_name: Bentley

``!oid`` is a custom *yaml* constructor provided by *MongoTest*. This constructor
allows you to create object ids based on an integer seed. You can access the
constructor directly from python, which allows you to write assertions on
document identity::

from mongo_test.fixtures import oid_con
user = db.coll.find({name: ''})
assert user['_id'] = oid_con(1)
