Helpers for creating high-level functional tests in Django, with a unified API
for WebTest and Selenium tests.

Documentation
-------------

The full documentation is at https://django-functest.readthedocs.org.

Installation
------------

::

pip install django-functest

See also the `dependencies documentation
<http: django-functest.readthedocs.io="" en="" latest="" installation.html#dependencies="">`_
for important compatibility information.

Features
--------

* A simplified API for writing functional tests in Django (tests that check the
behaviour of entire views, or sets of views, e.g. a checkout process).

* A unified API that abstracts over both `WebTest
<http: webtest.pythonpaste.org="" en="" latest=""/>`_ and `Selenium
<https: pypi.python.org="" pypi="" selenium="">`_ - write two tests at once!

* Many of the gotchas and difficulties of using WebTest and Selenium ironed out
for you.

* Well tested - as well as its own test suite, which is run against Firefox,
Chrome, and PhantomJS, it is also used by `Wolf & Badger
<https: www.wolfandbadger.com=""/>`_ for tests covering many business critical
functionalities.

Typical usage
-------------

In your tests.py::

from django.test import LiveServerTestCase, TestCase
from django_functest import FuncWebTestMixin, FuncSeleniumMixin, FuncBaseMixin

class ContactTestBase(FuncBaseMixin):
# Abstract class, doesn't inherit from TestCase

def test_contact_form(self):
self.get_url('contact_form')
self.fill({'#id_name': 'Joe',
'#id_message': 'Hello'})
self.submit('input[type=submit]')
self.assertTextPresent("Thanks for your message")

class ContactWebTest(ContactTestBase, FuncWebTestMixin, TestCase):
pass

class ContactSeleniumTest(ContactTestBase, FuncSeleniumMixin, LiveServerTestCase):
pass

In this way, you can write a single test with a high-level API, and run it in
two way - using a fast, WSGI-based method which emulates typical HTTP usage of a
browser, and using a full browser that actually executes Javascript (if present)
etc.

Under the hood, the WSGI-based method uses and builds upon `WebTest
<http: webtest.pythonpaste.org="" en="" latest=""/>`_ and `django-webtest
<https: pypi.python.org="" pypi="" django-webtest="">`_.

django-functest provides its functionality as mixins, so that you can have your
own base class for tests.


Running Tests
--------------

To run the tests::

source <yourvirtualenv>/bin/activate
(myenv) $ ./setup.py develop
(myenv) $ ./runtests.py

Or, to run on all environments::

pip install tox
tox


Firefox tests are currently failing due to incompatibilities with recent
Firefox versions (>= 47) and all published versions of Selenium (< 3.0).

This can be worked around by downloading an old version of Firefox from
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/ and
using ``runtests.py --firefox-binary=...``, or, in the case of using tox::

TEST_FIREFOX_BINARY=... tox

100%
* New method :meth:`~django_functest.FuncSeleniumMixin.get_webdriver_options`

+++++

* Added get_session_data()
* Improved reliability of ``FuncSeleniumMixin.get_literal_url()``
* Allow ``<select>`` elements to be set using integers for values.
