Project description

mocksftp - Easily test your sftp client code

In-process SFTP server for testing your SFTP related client code.

Usage example

For pytest, use the sftp_server and sftp_client fixtures:

from contextlib import closing
import py.path

def test_open_file(sftp_server, sftp_client):
    # Write directly in the server root.
    root_path = py.path.local(sftp_server.root)

    # Access the folder via the client
    sftp = sftp_client.open_sftp()
    assert sftp.listdir('.') == ['file.txt']

    with closing('file.txt', 'r')) as data:
        assert == b'content'


This project was started as a fork of created by Carlos Valiente.

The SSH related code was removed to focus solely on the SFTP protocol.
