A Python library to ease testing applications that rely on MongoDB as a datastore

Project description

================
MongoDB Test Util
================

This library provides a handful of useful functionality for easing the testing
of systems that rely on *MongoDB* as a datastore

-------------------------
Start and Teardown mongod
-------------------------

For most use cases, you can use this snippet to startup a ``mongod`` instance
for your test environment::

from mongo_test.handlers import startup_handle
startup_handle()

To tear an instance down if one exists::

from mongo_test.handlers import teardown_handle
teardown_handle()

--------
Fixtures
--------

*MongoTest* allows you to specify fixtures in *yaml*, with a few conveniences.
A sample yaml file would look something like::

`user_fixture.yml`
configuration:
collection: users
drop: true
simple_user:
_id: !oid 1
username: idbentley
first_name: Ian
last_name: Bentley

``!oid`` is a custom *yaml* constructor provided by *MongoTest*. This constructor
allows you to create object ids based on an integer seed. You can access the
constructor directly from python, which allows you to write assertions on
document identity::

from mongo_test.fixtures import oid_con
user = db.coll.find({name: 'ian.bentley@gmail.com'})
assert user['_id'] = oid_con(1)
