pytest_pyramid provides basic fixtures for testing pyramid applications with pytest test suite.
By default, pytest_pyramid will create two fixtures: pyramid_config, which creates configurator based on config.ini file, and pyramid_app, which creates TestApp based on Configurator returned by pyramid_config.
Command line options
- --pc - pyramid configuration file based on which pytest_pyramid will create test app
For the most basic usage, pytest_pyramid provides pyramid_app and pyramid_config fixtures, that can be used to test your pyramid app. Simply pass your pyramid config *.ini file to --pc command-line option, and include pytest_app fixture into your test suite to be able to use it for integration tests.
pytest_pyramid provides two fixtures to be used in pytest tests:
- pyramid_config - fixture providing pyramid's Configurator instance as defined in pyramid config's file
- pyramid_app - pyramid application for testing - a webtest.app.TestApp
Both of these fixtures depend on the Config file passed in the command line.
If you're developing a module, package meant to extend functionalities of other applications, it's not necessary to create a full-blown application to test functionalities provided in packages. To do this, pytest_pyramid provides you with fixture pytest_pyramid.factories.
There are two factories:
pytest_pyramid.factories.pyramid_config provides you with Configuration object based on either settings, config_file argument, or by --pc command-line option config file.
pytest_pyramid.factories.pyramid_app creates a webtest.app.TestApp based on Configurator class instance as returned from fixture passed by name to it. It also accepts additional fixtures that should be loaded before the pyramid_app. See the example with postgresql below.
from pytest_postgresql.plugin import postgresql
from pytest_pyramid import factories
app_config = factories.pyramid_config(config_path="development.ini")
app_with_postgres = factories.pyramid_app("app_config", "postgresql")
res = app_with_postgres.get('/', status=404)
assert res.status_code == 404
- provide a pyramid_proc fixture that will start pyramid app process using summon_process
To run tests run this command:
pytest --pc tests/pyramid.test.ini
