Mocked-up LDAP connection library

Project description

Unit test status Coverage Status Documentation Status PyPI Python versions


This package offers a mock python-ldap library that can be used for testing code relying on python-ldap without having to configure and populate a real directory server.

Starting with version 3.0 the library will behave just like python-ldap version 3.3 or higher:

  • distinguished names, relative distinguished names, attribute names and queries are expected to be native un-encoded string values.
  • attribute values are expected to be bytes values.

If you pass the wrong type of string, the library will raise a TypeError. See for a short description of this behavior.

Since queries are un-encoded string values and attribute values passed in the query would never match bytes values in the data store, searches will always test against both unencoded and bytes values.
