Raise errors when communicating outside of tests

Project description

An experimental nose plugin to block access to external services that you really should not be accessing in your unit tests.

To use:

pip install nose-blockage

Then add the following to your tests:

--with-blockage

Blocking HTTP

By default it whitelists localhost and 127.0.0.1. To change the whitelist:

--http-whitelist=some.site,some.other.site

If the code hits a http connection then instead of completing it will raise a MockHTTPCall exception. Please go and mock your tests appropriately.

Blocking SMTP

By default it whitelists no domains. To change the whitelist:

--smtp-whitelist=some.site

It will raise a MockSMTPCall exception.
