asyncio unit tests with Django transactional support.
It supports Django 1.8+ for Python versions 3.5+ and uses asynctest under the covers to provide support for easily mocking coroutines.
Available at django-async-test.readthedocs.org
You can install django-async-test either via the Python Package Index (PyPI) or from github.
To install using pip;
$ pip install django-async-test
$ pip install git+https://github.com/alexhayes/django-async-test.git
asynctest.TestCase does a great job of mocking coroutines however if you’re writing tests that manipulate the database in Django you’ll most likely want to ensure that things are cleaned up after your test.
import django_async_test class MyTestCase(django_async_test.TestCase): @django_async_test.patch('myapp.my_coroutine') def test_foo(self, MockMyCoroutine): # Mock our coroutine. MockMyCoroutine.return_value = 'Hello World' # Create an instance of MyModel MyModel.objects.create(...) ... ...
In the above example, the test is run inside a transaction by Django’s TestCase, thus the creation of a MyModel will be rolled back, cleaning up the database.
Also, our co-routine will be patched correctly by asynctest.
