Easily mock calls to ubersmith at the `requests` level.

Project description

Mock out calls to the python-ubersmith library


pytest-ubersmith makes it really easy to mock out API calls:

import ubersmith.client

def test_add_client(ubermock):
    client_id = 1234
    ubermock.client.add = client_id

    assert ubersmith.client.add(login='test', password='abc') == 1234

    # Easy checking of calls
    assert ubermock.client.add.called
    assert ubermock.client.add.call_count == 1

To have python-ubersmith raise a ResponseError, return an ubermock.ResponseError:

import ubersmith.client
import ubersmith.exceptions

def test_unknown_client(ubermock):
    ubermock.client.get = ubermock.ResponseError('Invalid client!', 1)

    with pytest.raises(ubersmith.exceptions.ResponseError):

If you need complete control over the response, you can return the whole Ubersmith JSON response:

import pytest
import ubersmith.client
import ubersmith.exceptions

def test_unknown_client_raw(ubermock):
    ubermock.client.get.raw_response = {
        'status': False,
        'data': '',
        'error_message': 'Invalid client',
        'error_code': 1,

    with pytest.raises(ubersmith.exceptions.ResponseError):

You can even pass a callable for dynamic responses:

import pytest
import ubersmith.client
import ubersmith.exceptions

def test_dynamic_client(ubermock):
    def get_client(method, params, request, context):
        if params['client_id'] == '1':
            return {'client_id': 1}
            raise ubermock.ResponseError('Invalid client!', 1)

    ubermock.client.get = get_client

    assert ubersmith.client.get(client_id=1) == {'client_id': 1}
    with pytest.raises(ubersmith.exceptions.ResponseError):
