Unit test mixin which creates a scratch directory

Project description

Unit test mixin which creates a scratch director. Sets self.scratch_dir on initialization, and deletes it when finished.

import unittest
from scratch_dir import ScratchDirMixin

class TestThing(CreateScratchDirectoryMixin, unittest.TestCase):
    def setUp(self):
        import json
        import os

        super(TestThing, self).setUp()

        self.local_json_file = self.get_tmp_path('example.json')
        json.dump({'a': 42}, self.local_json_file)

        print 'Example file written to scratch dir: {}'.format(self.scratch_dir)


pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
rake lint
