PonyORM in Pytest
PonyORM in Pytest
- Access Database instance (db) via ponydb fixture
- Mark tests to auto allow use of pony.orm.db_session
- Database is by default cleared after each test
- Database reset can be cancelled for test/class/module
Tested from Pony ORM >= ‘0.7.3’ and python : 3.5, 3.6
$ pip install pytest-ponyorm or $ pipenv install -d pytest-ponyorm
By default, database is cleared after each test. You must never use it in a production environment. This plugin doesn’t change the database config.It’s you’job to create the testing environment and change database params.
First, configure PONY_DB in pytest.ini. PonyORM main Database instance module location must be specified in pytest.ini to make it work : for example if db is in /path/models/main.py, you must configure like this :
Then just apply the pony marker :
# models.py db = Database() # test.py @pytest.mark.pony def my_test(ponydb): new_mod = ponydb.Mymodel(name="me",...)
You can mark a class or function with @pytest.mark.pony or the whole module with pytestmark = pytest.mark.pony
The marker pony takes one argument : reset_db, default is True. In this case the marked test doesn’t reset the database at ending.
# test.py pytestmark = pytest.mark.pony # marks all tests of the module def test1: pass def test2: pass @pytest.mark.pony(reset_db=False) def test 3: pass # test3 will use database in the state that test2 left it.
About Reseting Database:
Test database tables are dropped/recreate before the test SESSION.
Initialy this plugin did drop/recreate table for each test. Due to perfomance reason, this has changed. Now tables are cleared but not dropped.
Sql sequences like “auto PrimaryKey” will also be reset but actually, it’s only supported for PostgreSQL and Sqlite. For other databases, Primarykey might not start at 1 for each test. This has to be considered when writing tests.
About Fixtures :
Fixtures should not use db_session decorator or context manager. Each test is automaticaly run inside a db_session and each operation inside fixtures will be commited at test start.
Contributions are very welcome. Tests can be run with tox, please ensure the coverage at least stays the same before you submit a pull request.
