Hypothesis DRF

Project description

[Hypothesis]( strategy for
[Django REST framework]( serializers.

Generate data that is valid according to a DRF serializer

### Known issues

* Only tested with python3.6
* `URLField` can be slow when generating the first example
* `*RelatedField` gets first object in queryset, not random
* Not all fields are supported, known non-working:
- FileField
- FilePathField
- ImageField
- ModelField

### Example

pip install hypothesis-drf

from hypothesis_drf import from_serializer, from_field
from rest_framework import serializers

class ExampleSerializer(serializers.Serializer):
name = serializers.CharField(min_length=3, max_length=8)
amount = serializers.IntegerField(min_value=200, max_value=500)

# {'amount': 391, 'name': '\U00053a6b&\U00030fee$.'}

from_field(serializers.FloatField(min_value=-10, max_value=22)).example()
# -8.499125311228873


For HyperLinkedRelatedField (and variants) you must pass an instantiated serializer as
they require access to the request via context:

from hypothesis_drf import from_serializer

class RelatedExample(serializers.ModelSerializer):
class Meta:
model = SourceModel
fields = ('target', )

target = HyperLinkedRelatedField(queryset=TargetModel.objects.all())

from_serializer(RelatedExample(context={'request': request})).example()
# {'target': ''}

### Custom fields

Provide `hypothesis_strategy` on the field:

from rest_framework import fields
from hypothesis import strategies as st

class MyField(fields.Field):
hypothesis_strategy = st.booleans()

# ...
