A library for detecting memory leaks in tests, mainly with mocks

Project description


Mock and memory leak detector library. Right now this just features a plugin for Nose 1.x and is in beta.

This plugin: - Detects mocks that are not reset between tests. - Detects mocks created during tests that are not deleted by the end of the test. - Reports memory delta between tests. Optional.

To learn the story of the name, visit,_or_The_Silver_Skates.

Pull requests are welcome. In particular, area I’m looking to improve are: - adding a pytest test runner - improving memory delta reporting

Django Setup

To use this plugin with django nose runner, just include the following in your settings file:

NOSE_ARGS = ['--with-leak-detector', '--leak-detector-level=3']
