Project description


Build Status Maintainability Test Coverage

A simple pytest plugin to disable network on socket level.


$ pip install pytest-network


pytest-network has a flag --disable-network that will raise an error if tests will try to use socket.socket.connect

You can use it directly like:

$ python3 -m pytest --disable-network

or add this flag as the default behavior in your pytest.ini:

addopts = --disable-network

Also you can directly disable network:

import requests

def test_network_request_raises_error(disable_network):
    response = requests.get('')  # this will raise an exception

    assert response.status_code == 200

or directly enable (if you have default --disable-network flag):

import requests

def test_network_request_is_ok(disable_network):
    response = requests.get('')

    assert response.status_code == 200  # this will pass


To setup development environment you must first create a virtual environment. For example:

$ python3.8 -m venv <venv-name>

After that install all requirements:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

And install plugin itself (inside project directory and virtual environment):

$ pip install -e .

Check that tests are running:

$ make test


We would love you to contribute to our project. It's simple:

  • Create an issue with bug you found or proposal you have. Wait for approve from maintainer.
  • Create a pull request. Make sure all checks are green.
  • Fix review comments if any.
  • Be awesome.

Here are useful tips:

  • You can run all checks and tests with make check. Please do it before TravisCI does.
  • We use BestDoctor python styleguide. Sorry, styleguide is available only in Russian for now.
  • We respect Django CoC. Make soft, not bullshit.
