Mock object framework for Python
Mox3 is an unofficial port of the Google mox framework (http://code.google.com/p/pymox/) to Python 3. It was meant to be as compatible with mox as possible, but small enhancements have been made. The library was tested on Python version 3.2, 2.7 and 2.6.
Use at your own risk ;)
$ python setup.py install
The testing system is based on a combination of tox and testr. The canonical approach to running tests is to simply run the command tox. This will create virtual environments, populate them with depenedencies and run all of the tests that OpenStack CI systems run. Behind the scenes, tox is running testr run –parallel, but is set up such that you can supply any additional testr arguments that are needed to tox. For example, you can run: tox – –analyze-isolation to cause tox to tell testr to add –analyze-isolation to its argument list.
It is also possible to run the tests inside of a virtual environment you have created, or it is possible that you have all of the dependencies installed locally already. In this case, you can interact with the testr command directly. Running testr run will run the entire test suite. testr run –parallel will run it in parallel (this is the default incantation tox uses.) More information about testr can be found at: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Testr
The basic usage of mox3 is the same as with mox, but the initial import should be made from the mox3 module:
from mox3 import mox
