Project description

Library to simplify writing HTTP REST service integration tests.

Allows to build a HTTP REST client with automatic resource cleanup.


from http_test_client import Client, HttpTransport, RestResources, resources

class ArticleResources(RestResources):
    def search(self, query):
        return self._request('/search', method='POST', data={'query': query})

    class Resource(RestResources.Resource):
        def publish(self):
            return self._request('/publish', method='POST')

        comments = resources('/comments')

class MyClient(Client):
    users = resources('/users')
    articles = resources('/articles', ArticleResources)

client = MyClient(HttpTransport('http://localhost:8888'))

# managing resources
client.users.list() # => [{'id': '1', 'name': 'John'}, ...]
client.users.create({'name': 'Jane'}) # => {'id': '2'}
client.users['1'].get() # => {'id': '1', 'name': 'John'}

# delete all resources that were created during this client session

# custom action

# nested resources


$ pip install http-test-client
