pytest-pyramid-server 1.2.7

Pyramid server fixture for py.test

# Py.test Pyramid Server Fixture

Pyramid server fixture for py.test. The server is session-scoped by default
and run in a subprocess and temp dir, and as such is a 'real' server that you
can point a Selenium webdriver at.

## Installation

Install using your favourite package manager:

pip install pytest-pyramid
# or..
easy_install pytest-pyramid

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

pytest_plugins = ['pytest_pyramid_server']

## Configuration

This fixture searches for its configuration in the current working directory
called 'testing.ini'. All .ini files in the cwd will be copied to the tempdir
so that paster-style config chaining still works. For example:

src/ # Project code is in here # Project
development.ini # Development settings
production.ini # Production settings
testing.ini # Testing settings, will be used if tests
# are invoked using 'py.test' from this
# directory

## Example

Here's a noddy test case showing the main functionality:

def test_pyramid_server(pyramid_server):
# This is the http://{host}:{port} of the running server. It will attempt to resolve
# to externally accessable IPs so a web browser can access it.
assert pyramid_server.uri.startswith('http')

# GET a document from the server.
assert pyramid_server.get('/orders/macbooks', as_json=True) == {'id-1234': 'MPB-15inch'}

# POST a document to the server.
assert'/login', 'guest:password123').response_code == 200

# ```` path object to the running config file
assert pyramid_server.working_config.endswith('testing.ini')

## `PyramidServer` class

Using this with the default `pyramid_server` py.test fixture is good enough for a lot of
use-cases however you may wish to have more fine-grained control about the server configuration.
To do this you can use the underlying server class directly - this is an implenentation of the
`pytest-server-fixture` framework and as such acts as a context manager:

from pytest_pyramid import PyramidTestServer

def test_custom_server():
with PyramidTestServer(
# You can specify you own config directory and name

# You can set arbitrary config variables in the constructor
extra_config_vars={'my_config_section': {'my_dbname: 'foo',
'my_dbpass: 'bar'}}
) as server:
assert not server.dead
assert 'my_dbname = foo' in server.working_config.text()

# Server should now be dead
assert server.dead

## `pytest-webdriver` and [PageObjects]( integration

The `pytest-webdriver` plugin will detect when this plugin is active and set its default base
URL to the url of the running server. This is a nice way of avoiding lots of string manipulation
in your browser tests when using Page Objects:

from page_objects import PageObject, PageElement

class LoginPage(PageObject):
username = PageElement(id_='username')
password = PageElement(name='password')
login = PageElement(css='input[type="submit"]')

def test_login_page(webdriver, pyramid_server):
page = LoginPage(webdriver)
assert webdriver.getCurrentUrl() == pyramid_server.uri + '/foo/bar'
