eXtra Test Cases for Django

Project description

Django eXtra Test Cases

Django’s test cases focus on test cases for use with a database.

This is excellent as it is the hardest thing to do right. Yet, when creating (reusable) apps that do not have any models or testing views that do not use any models, you often find yourself doing the same thing with SimpleTestCase.

This issue is the focus of Django XTC.


The core test case for testing templates. Requires a template test directory which can be set on the class level an will fall back to TEMPLATE_TEST_DIR using Django’s settings.

Below this directory, at least two subdirectories are used:

  • src: The template code

  • expect: The expected output of that template code

  • actual: (optional) Used if the output is to be saved for post-mortem


At the core is the test method assertTemplateEqual, which compares the expected template code with the actual. The template context (the variables) can be manipulated using the template_context attribute.
