pytest-salt-containers 0.2.dev10

A Pytest plugin that builds and creates docker containers

pytest-salt-containers
===================================

A Pytest plugin that makes it easy to write integration tests for salt

----

This `Pytest`_ plugin was generated with `Cookiecutter`_ along with `@hackebrot`_'s `Cookiecutter-pytest-plugin`_ template.


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

You can install "pytest-salt-containers" via `pip`_ from `PyPI`_::

$ pip install pytest-salt-containers


Usage
-----

How to write tests and how they work
************************************

Writing a "test.ping" test

For this we need a salt master and a minion.
We can do that by creating a new file in the `tests` folder:

.. compound::

./tests/test_example.py::

def test_ping_minion(master, minion):
pass

This uses `master` and `minion` fixtures defined in `tests/conftest.py`.

_Note: The fixtures defined in `conftest.py` (or in the current file) are automatically discovered by `py.test`_

The fixtures rely on [fatory-boy](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/factory_boy/) factories defined in `tests/factories.py`.
The factories take care of running `sast-master` and `salt-minion` in separate docker containers (it is also possible to run them in the same container).

With this, we have a running salt-master and a salt-minion.

To make master accept minion, I have created a convenient fixture called `minion_key_accepted`
Let's modify the test above to use it.

.. compound::

./tests/test_example.py::

def test_ping_minion(master, minion, minion_key_accepted):
pass

To run `salt <minion-id> test.ping` on master and assert minion replied, do this:

.. compound::

./tests/test_example.py::

def test_ping_minion(master, minion, minion_key_accepted):
assert master.salt(minion['id'], "test.ping")[minion['id']] is True

This might fail sometimes because the command might be run before .
In order to avoid that, I have created a `retry` helper that raises an exception if the command was not successful within `config.TIME_LIMIT`. So we need to change the test like this:

.. compound::

./tests/test_example.py::

from utils import retry


def test_ping_minion(master, minion, minion_key_accepted):

def ping():
return master.salt(minion['id'], "test.ping")[minion['id']]

assert retry(ping)
