Testing tornado web application in any testing libraries.

Project description

Tornado-Tester
==============

Testing tool of tornado web for any testing libraries.

Contextual Tester
-----------------

You can use testing tool by using 'with' statement. ::

import unittest
from tornado_tester import gen_test, Tester

from yourapplication import app

class Test(unittest.TestCase):
@gen_test
def test_app():
with Tester(app) as tester:
response = yield tester.http_client(tester.url_for('/hello'))
...

By using :meth:`url_for` you can make URL with current HTTP server's address.

And you can use it for py.test like. ::

import pytest
from tornado_tester import gen_test, Tester

from yourapplication import app


@pytest.fixture
def tester(request):
tester = Tester(app)

tester.setup()
request.addfinalizer(tester.teardown)
return tester


@gen_test
def test_app(tester):
response = yield tester.http_client(tester.url_for('/hello'))
...

.. warning::
You can't use multiple Testers in one gen_test by default.

You should provide a shared I/O loop to use multiple tester. ::

import pytest
from tornado.ioloop import IOLoop
from tornado_tester import gen_test, Tester

from yourapplication import app


@gen_test
def test_app():
loop = IOLoop()
tester1 = Tester(app, io_loop=loop)
tester2 = Tester(app, io_loop=loop)

with tester1:
...

with tester2:
...
