Pytest fixtures for Invenio.

Project description

Pytest fixtures for Invenio.

The package offers a number of features to help test Invenio based applications:

  • Less boilerplate: Using the fixtures you can keep your short and focused.

  • Database re-use: database tests are running inside a transaction which is rolled back after the test.

  • End-to-end testing: Selenium tests can easily be switched on/off, and in case of test failures a screenshot is taken (with possibility to output in the console in base64-encoding - useful on e.g. TravisCI).

  • Application configuration for testing (e.g. disable CSRF protection in forms and HTTPS requirement).

  • JSON decoding support in Flask test client for easier API testing.

  • Batteries included: further fixtures help with e.g. mail sending and CLI tests.

Version 1.4.0 (released 2020-09-16)

    In ./ script you should also remove calls to pydocstyle and isort as both are now integrated with pytest.

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE: Upgrade dependencies: coverage, pytest-flask, check-manifest, pytest. You need to set the pytest-flask live server fixture scope in your pytest config:
