Context manager for background command-line programs

Project description

Process Wrapper is a simple module that executes a command-line style program via a context manager. This is useful if you want your script to do something that relies on a background process.

This module is conceived because of a need to automate the setup and teardown of the Django server when running Robotframework tests. Sample usage would look like this:

#!/usr/bin/env python

import robot
from process_wrapper import run_process

with run_process('python runserver'):'blackbox_test.robot')

Right now, the process being run is forcefully terminated with a SIGKILL or equivalent signal on context exit. Caution is advised.

To install

Run in command line:

pip install process-wrapper



For running tests

  1. nose (for running tests conveniently, not essential)
  2. mock
