HTTPretty

HTTP Client mocking tool for Python created by Gabriel Falcão . It provides a full fake TCP socket module. Inspired by FakeWeb

Install

pip install httpretty

Common Use Cases

  • Test-driven development of API integrations
  • Fake responses of external APIs
  • Record and playback HTTP requests

Simple Example

import sure
import httpretty
import requests


@httpretty.activate
def test_httpbin():
    httpretty.register_uri(
        httpretty.GET,
        "https://httpbin.org/ip",
        body='{"origin": "127.0.0.1"}'
    )

    response = requests.get('https://httpbin.org/ip')
    response.json().should.equal({'origin': '127.0.0.1'})

    httpretty.latest_requests().should.have.length_of(1)
    httpretty.last_request().should.equal(httpretty.latest_requests()[0])
    httpretty.last_request().body.should.equal('{"origin": "127.0.0.1"}')

checking multiple responses

@httpretty.activate
def test_post_bodies():
    url = 'http://httpbin.org/post'
    httpretty.register_uri(httpretty.POST, url, status=200)
    httpretty.register_uri(httpretty.POST, url, status=400)
    requests.post(url, data={'foo': 'bar'})
    requests.post(url, data={'zoo': 'zoo'})
    assert 'foo=bar' in httpretty.latest_requests()[0].body
    assert 'zoo=bar' in httpretty.latest_requests()[1].body
