Boddle

A unit testing tool for Python’s bottle library. We wrote this for our own testing purposes at https://www.hvst.com. Thanks brenguyen711 for the great name!

Install

sudo pip install boddle

Usage

Assuming you have a bottle route like this:

@bottle.get('/woot')
def woot():
  return bottle.request.params['name']

You can unit test it like:

import unittest
from boddle import boddle

class TestIt(unittest.TestCase):
  def testWoot(self):
    with boddle(params={'name':'derek'}):
      self.assertEqual(woot(), 'derek')

See `example.py <example.py>`__.

Options

The Bottle-specific params that are supported are:

Argument Notes
params Populates request.params. Takes a dict or list of pairs. Useful for both POST and GET params.
path The path component of the url. Populates request.path, which always has a preceeding /.
method POST, GET, etc. Bottle will uppercase the value.
headers Any HTTP headers. Takes a dict.
json Takes anything that can be consumed by json.dumps(). Also sets the content type of the request.
url The full URL, protocol, domain, port, path, etc. Will be parsed until its urlparts before populating request.url.
body The raw body of the request. Takes either a str or a file-like object. strs will be converted into file-like objects. Populated request.body.
query Populates request.query. Takes a dict.

All other keyword arguments will be assigned to the request object. For instance, we often do:

with boddle(current_user=someone):
  # code that accesses bottle.request.current_user

You can also nest boddle calls. For instance:

with boddle(path='/woot'):
  with boddle(params={'name':'derek'}):
    # both path and params are set here
  # only path is set here

ALL CHANGES TO ``bottle.request`` ARE REVERTED WHEN THE WITH BLOCK ENDS.
