Process executor for tests.
Maybe you want to be able to start database only when you start your program, or maybe you need just to set up additional processes for your tests, this is where you should consider using mirakuru, to add superpowers to your program, or tests.
As developers, we have to work on project that rely on multiple processes to run. We guard ourselves with tests. But sometimes it’s not enough what one process sends, and the other receives. Sometimes there’s need to actually exchange data between processes. Or write selenium tests. Or maybe write a program that takes care of starting databases or other required services itself.
If so, then mirakuru is what you need.
Mirakuru starts your required process, and wait for clear indication, that it’s running. There are three basic executors with predefined conditions:
Executor - simply starts
OutputExecutor - awaits for specified output to be given by process
TCPExecutor - waits for ability to connect through tcp with process
HTTPExecutor - waits for successful HEAD request (and tcp before).
from mirakuru import HTTPExecutor
from httplib import HTTPConnection, OK
executor = HTTPExecutor("./server", url="http://localhost:6543/")
# start and wait for it to run
# should be running!
conn = HTTPConnection("localhost", 6543)
assert conn.getresponse().status is OK
The server command in this case is just a bash script that sleeps for some time and then launches the builtin SimpleHTTPServer on port 6543.
