pook 0.2.4

HTTP traffic mocking and expectations made easy

pook |Build Status| |PyPI| |Coverage Status| |Documentation Status| |Stability| |Quality| |Versions|
====================================================================================================

Versatile, expressive and hackable utility library for HTTP traffic mocking
and expectations made easy in `Python`_. Heavily inspired by `gock`_.

To get started, see the `documentation`_, `how it works`_, `FAQ`_ or `examples`_.

Features
--------

- Simple, expressive and fluent API.
- Provides both Pythonic and chainable DSL API styles.
- Full-featured HTTP response definitions and expectations.
- Matches any HTTP protocol primitive (URL, method, query params, headers, body...).
- Full regular expressions capable mock expectations matching.
- Supports most popular HTTP clients via interceptor adapters.
- Configurable volatile, persistent or TTL limited mocks.
- Works with any testing framework/engine (unittest, pytest, nosetests...).
- First-class JSON & XML support matching and responses.
- Supports JSON Schema body matching.
- Works in both runtime and testing environments.
- Can be used as decorator and/or via context managers.
- Supports real networking mode with optional traffic filtering.
- Map/filter mocks easily for generic or custom mock expectations.
- Custom user-defined mock matcher functions.
- Simulated raised error exceptions.
- Network delay simulation (only available for ``aiohttp``).
- Pluggable and hackable API.
- Customizable HTTP traffic mock interceptor engine.
- Supports third-party mocking engines, such as `mocket`_.
- Fits good for painless test doubles.
- Does not support WebSocket traffic mocking.
- Works with Python +2.7 and +3.0 (including PyPy).
- Dependency-less: just 2 small dependencies for JSONSchema and XML tree comparison.


Supported HTTP clients
----------------------

``pook`` can work with multiple mock engines, however it provides a
built-in one by default, which currently supports traffic mocking in
the following HTTP clients:

- ✔ `urllib3`_ v1+
- ✔ `requests`_ v2+
- ✔ `aiohttp`_ v1+ - v2+
- ✔ `urllib`_ / `http.client`_ v2/3
- ✘ `pycurl`_ (see `#16`_)

More HTTP clients can be supported progressively.

**Note**: only recent HTTP client package versions were tested.

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

Using ``pip`` package manager (requires pip 1.8+):

.. code:: bash

pip install --upgrade pook

Or install the latest sources from Github:

.. code:: bash

pip install -e git+git://github.com/h2non/pook.git#egg=pook


Getting started
---------------

See ReadTheDocs documentation:

|Documentation Status|


API
---

See `annotated API reference`_ documention.


Examples
--------

See `examples`_ documentation for full featured code and use case examples.

Basic mocking:

.. code:: python

import pook
import requests

@pook.on
def test_my_api():
mock = pook.get('http://twitter.com/api/1/foobar' reply=404, response_json={'error': 'foo'})

resp = requests.get('http://twitter.com/api/1/foobar')
assert resp.status_code == 404
assert resp.json() == {"error": "not found"}
assert mock.calls == 1

Using the chainable API DSL:

.. code:: python

import pook
import requests

@pook.on
def test_my_api():
mock = (pook.get('http://twitter.com/api/1/foobar')
.reply(404)
.json({'error': 'not found'}))

resp = requests.get('http://twitter.com/api/1/foobar')
assert resp.json() == {"error": "not found"}
assert mock.calls == 1

Using the decorator:

.. code:: python

import pook
import requests

@pook.get('http://httpbin.org/status/500' reply=204)
@pook.get('http://httpbin.org/status/400' reply=200)
def fetch(url):
return requests.get(url)

res = fetch('http://httpbin.org/status/400')
print('#1 status:', res.status_code)

res = fetch('http://httpbin.org/status/500')
print('#2 status:', res.status_code)


Simple ``unittest`` integration:

.. code:: python

import pook
import unittest
import requests


class TestUnitTestEngine(unittest.TestCase):

@pook.on
def test_request(self):
pook.get('server.com/foo').reply(204)
res = requests.get('http://server.com/foo')
self.assertEqual(res.status_code, 204)

def test_request_with_context_manager(self):
with pook.use():
pook.get('server.com/bar' reply=204)
res = requests.get('http://server.com/bar')
self.assertEqual(res.status_code, 204)


Using the context manager for isolated HTTP traffic interception blocks:

.. code:: python

import pook
import requests

# Enable HTTP traffic interceptor
with pook.use():
pook.get('http://httpbin.org/status/500' reply=204)

res = requests.get('http://httpbin.org/status/500')
print('#1 status:', res.status_code)

# Interception-free HTTP traffic
res = requests.get('http://httpbin.org/status/200')
print('#2 status:', res.status_code)

Example using `mocket`_ Python library as underlying mock engine:

.. code:: python

import pook
import requests
from mocket.plugins.pook_mock_engine import MocketEngine

# Use mocket library as underlying mock engine
pook.set_mock_engine(MocketEngine)

# Explicitly enable pook HTTP mocking (optional)
pook.on()

# Target server URL to mock out
url = 'http://twitter.com/api/1/foobar'

# Define your mock
mock = pook.get(url,
reply=404, times=2,
headers={'content-type': 'application/json'},
response_json={'error': 'foo'})

# Run first HTTP request
requests.get(url)
assert mock.calls == 1

# Run second HTTP request
res = requests.get(url)
assert mock.calls == 2

# Assert response data
assert res.status_code == 404
assert res.json() == {'error': 'foo'}

# Explicitly disable pook (optional)
pook.off()


Example using Hy language (Lisp dialect for Python):

.. code:: hy

(import [pook])
(import [requests])

(defn request [url &optional [status 404]]
(doto (.mock pook url) (.reply status))
(let [res (.get requests url)]
(. res status_code)))

(defn run []
(with [(.use pook)]
(print "Status:" (request "http://server.com/foo" :status 204))))

;; Run test program
(defmain [&args] (run))
