Stub packages, modules and attributes.

Project description

release lic ci coverage health


Stub packages, modules and attributes.

This pytest plugin allows you to replace dependencies with stubs.

It can be useful if you want to test some code using a dependency without actually having this dependency, for example if you’re testing your library, which uses some parts of another library.


  • Python 3
  • pytest >= 2.9.0

How to use

Use stub fixture in your test functions, like this:

def test_django_related(stub):

        # Replace `call_command` with a generated function.
        '': '[func]',

        # Replace `BaseCommand` with a generated class.
        '': '[cls]',

        # Stub multiple attributes in the same module with custom objects.
        'django.conf': {
            'settings': object(),
            'some': True,


You can stub dependencies either with your own custom objects or you may instruct pytest-stub to generate functions or classes for you.
