input-mocker is simple and easy-to-use tool for mocking of prompt functions.

You can mock call to a `sys.stdin.readline in order to programmatically send user input.

Installation

You can install input-mocker from PyPi:

pip install input-mocker

or from GitHub:

pip install https://github.com/ciotto/input-mocker/archive/master.zip

Usage

Using input-mocker is easy:

>>> from input_mocker import InputMocker
>>> with InputMocker():
...    raw_input()  # Or input() for Python3
...    raw_input()
...    raw_input()
...    raw_input()
... 
'y'
'n'
'y'
'n'

By default input-mocker send alternated 'y'/'n' response.

If you want to get random response initialize instance with random=True paramiter:

>>> from input_mocker import InputMocker
>>> with InputMocker(random=True):
...    raw_input()
...    raw_input()
...    raw_input()
...    raw_input()
... 
'y'
'y'
'n'
'y'

Is also possible to use a customized set of inputs:

>>> with InputMocker(inputs=['Foo', '42']):
...    raw_input('A question: ')
...    raw_input('What's the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything? ')
... 
Question: 'Foo'
What's the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything? '42'

Sometimes probably you'll prefer to use the decorator:

>>> import input_mocker
>>> @input_mocker.patch(random=True)
... def my_method():
...    print(raw_input('question 1: '))
...    print(raw_input('question 2: '))
...    print(raw_input('question 3: '))
...    print(raw_input('question 4: '))
... 
>>> my_method()
question 1: y
question 1: y
question 1: y
question 1: n

input-mocker work with sys.stdin.readline(), input() and raw_input().
