liveandletdie 0.0.1

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

Latest Version: 0.0.2

==========================================
Live and Let Die (former Test Live Server)
==========================================

**Live and Let Die** (former Test Live Server) 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 <peterhudec.github.io/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
^^^^^^

.. code-block:: python

    import liveandletdie

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

Google App Engine
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

.. code-block:: python

    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)``.

.. code-block:: python

    # 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()


.. code-block:: python

    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)``.

.. code-block:: python

    # 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()


.. code-block:: python

    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.

.. code-block:: python

    # 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()

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

Or bootstrap and run tests in one step:

::

    $ sh bootstrap-and-test.sh

Enjoy!
