TestLiveServer 0.0.2

Simplifies launching and terminating of web development servers from **BDD** or **functional** tests

Test Live Server moved to Live and Let Die!

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/liveandletdie https://github.com/peterhudec/liveandletdie

Live and Let Die is a simple package to simplify launching and terminating of web development servers from BDD or functional tests. I have created it for functional testing of the Authomatic package.

Note that the package has just recently been renamed from former testliveserver to current liveandletdie!

The package Currently supports Google App engine, Django, Flask and wsgiref.simple_server. Support for other frameworks will hopefully be added in future.

Usage

You first need to make instance of one of the framework classes.

Django

import liveandletdie

# Django
app = liveandletdie.Django('path/to/django/project/',
                           host='0.0.0.0',
                           port=5555,
                           timeout=60.0)

Google App Engine

import liveandletdie

app = liveandletdie.GAE('path/to/dev_appserver.py',
                        'path/to/gae/app/dir', # containing app.yaml file
                        host='0.0.0.0',
                        port=5555,
                        timeout=60.0)

Flask

By Flask you must wrap the WSGI application in liveandletdie.Flask.wrap(app).

# flask/app/main.py
from flask import Flask

DEBUG = True
SECRET_KEY = 'development key'
USERNAME = 'admin'
PASSWORD = 'default'

app = Flask(__name__)
app.config.from_object(__name__)

@app.route('/')
def home():
    return 'Hello World!'

if __name__ == '__main__':

    # This does nothing unless you run this module with --liveandletdie flag.
    import liveandletdie
    liveandletdie.Flask.wrap(app)

    app.run()
import liveandletdie

app = liveandletdie.Flask('path/to/flask/app/main.py',
                          host='0.0.0.0',
                          port=5555,
                          timeout=60.0)

Pyramid (wsgiref.simple_server)

By wsgiref.simple_server you must wrap the WSGI application in liveandletdie.WsgirefSimpleServer.wrap(app).

# pyramid/app/main.py
from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server

from pyramid.config import Configurator
from pyramid.response import Response


def home(request):
    return Response('Hello World!')


if __name__ == '__main__':

    config = Configurator()
    config.add_route('home', '/')
    config.add_view(home, route_name='home')
    app = config.make_wsgi_app()

    # This does nothing unless you run this module with --liveandletdie flag.
    import liveandletdie
    liveandletdie.WsgirefSimpleServer.wrap(app)

    server = make_server('127.0.0.1', 8080, app)
    server.serve_forever()
import liveandletdie

app = liveandletdie.Flask('path/to/pyramid/app/main.py',
                          host='0.0.0.0',
                          port=5555,
                          timeout=60.0)

Using the App instance

The interface is the same for all of the supported frameworks.

# Start the app.
# If kill is True, it will kill any Python process listening on port 5555
process = app.live(kill=True)

# You can check whether it is running
is_running = app.check()

# Stop it
app.die()

Simple PyTest example: https://github.com/peterhudec/liveandletdie/blob/master/test_examples/pytest_example/tests.py

Simple Lettuce example: https://github.com/peterhudec/liveandletdie/blob/master/test_examples/lettuce_example/tests.py

Developers

Clone:

$ git clone https://github.com/peterhudec/liveandletdie.git

Bootstrap the development environment. This will create the ./venv virtual environment in the project root.

$ sh bootstrap.sh

Run tests:

$ sh run-all.sh

Enjoy!
