Auto tests

Tests live in the tests directory. When invoking tests, make sure you are in the root directory of this project. To run the full suite across all supported python versions, use tox_:

.. code-block:: shell


Running tox also runs pylint and coverage reports.

The test suite uses fixtures stored as JSON in test/fixtures. These files contain sanitized JSON responses from the API - the file name is the URL called to produce the response, replacing any slashes with underscores.

Test classes should extend test.base.ClientBaseCase. This provides them with self.client, a LendsmartClient object that is set up to work with tests. Importantly, any GET request made by this object will be mocked to retrieve data from the test fixtures. This includes lazy-loaded objects using this client (and by extension related models).

When testing against requests other than GET requests, self.mock_post (and equivalent methods for other HTTP verbs) can be used in a with block to mock out the intended request type. These functions accept the relative path from the api base url that should be returned, for example::
