pytest-listener 1.2.2

A simple network listener

# pytest-listener

Simple JSON listener using TCP that listens for data and stores it in a queue for later retrieval.

## Installation

Install using your favourite package manager:

```bash
pip install pytest-listener
# or..
easy_install pytest-listener
```

Enable the fixture explicitly in your tests or conftest.py (not required when using setuptools entry points):

```python
pytest_plugins = ['pytest_listener']
```

## Basic Test Usage

Here's a test showing the basic functionality:

```python
def test_listener(listener):
data1 = {'foo': 1}
listener.send(some_data)

data2 = {'bar': 2}
listener.send(some_data)

assert listener.receive() == data1
assert listener.receive() == data2

data3 = {'baz': 3}
listener.send(some_data)

# Clear the listening queue - this deletes data3
listener.clear_queue()

data2 = {'qux': 4}
listener.send(some_data)
assert listener.recieve() == data3
```
