Mock library for the airtable python client

Project description

A mock library to help test Python code accessing Airtable using the Python library.

It keeps tables in RAM and can do basic operations.


The easiest way is using pip:

pip install airtablemock


In your test, you patch the whole airtable library:

import unittest

import airtablemock

import mycode

@airtablemock.patch(mycode.__name__ + '.airtable')
class TestMyCode(unittest.TestCase):

  def test_foo():
    # This is a client for the base "baseID", it will not access the real
    # Airtable service but only the mock one which keeps data in RAM.
    client = airtablemock.Airtable('baseID', 'apiKey')

    # Populate the table.
    client.create('table-foo', {'field1': 1, 'field2': 'two'})

    # Run your code that uses Airtable, it should transparently uses the table
    # above.

    # Access the table again to check if anything was modified.
    records = client.get('table-foo')


To create a new release of airtablemock, tag the Git repo and run:
