Library for testing code that uses Riak.

Project Description

Fakeriak is an Apache2 licensed library, written in Python, for testing code that uses the Python Riak client.

A Fakeriak client contains a very simple, in-memory storage backend. An ordinary Riak client can simply be replaced with a Fakeriak client during unit testing, thus enabling the testing of components that depend on Riak.

test_payload = b'test'

riak_client = FakeRiakClient()
obj = riak_client.bucket('default').new(content_type='binary/octet-stream') = test_payload

assert riak_client.bucket('default').get(obj.key).data == test_payload


  • only default, simple buckets
  •, RiakBucket.get, RiakBucket.delete, RiakBucket.multiget
  •, RiakObject.delete(), RiakObject.exists
  • no concurrency (sibling) support


To install Fakeriak (preferably in a virtualenv), simply:

$ pip install fakeriak


Contributions are very welcome. Tests can be run with tox, please ensure the coverage at least stays the same before you submit a pull request.
