A mocking library for requests.

Project description


A mocking library for `requests` for Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.2, 3.3.


pip install httmock

You can use it to mock third-party APIs and test libraries that use `requests` internally, conditionally using mocked replies with the `urlmatch` decorator:

from httmock import urlmatch, HTTMock
import requests

def google_mock(url, request):
return 'Feeling lucky, punk?'

with HTTMock(google_mock):
r = requests.get('')
print r.content # 'Feeling lucky, punk?'

The `all_requests` decorator doesn't conditionally block real requests. If you return a dictionary, it will map to the `requests.Response` object returned:

from httmock import all_requests, HTTMock
import requests

def response_content(url, request):
return {'status_code': 200,
'content': 'Oh hai'}

with HTTMock(response_content):
r = requests.get('https://foo_bar')

print r.status_code
print r.content

If you pass in `Set-Cookie` headers, `requests.Response.cookies` will contain the values. You can also use `response` method directly instead of returning a dict:

from httmock import all_requests, response, HTTMock
import requests

def response_content(url, request):
headers = {'content-type': 'application/json',
'Set-Cookie': 'foo=bar;'}
content = {'message': 'API rate limit exceeded'}
return response(403, content, headers, None, 5, request)

with HTTMock(response_content):
r = requests.get('')

print r.json().get('message')
print r.cookies['foo']
