testkit - A collection of tools for testing

Project Description

This is a simple collection of test tools that have been developed out of need for some projects. However, some of these tools needed to be duplicated so I decided to consolidate them in this library.


  • Provides a way to use context managers in setup/teardown of a test
  • Provides a context manager for temporary directories
  • Provides a way to create shunts via fudge


  • Add docs


Install virtstrap via pip. Please install this system wide:

$ pip install virtstrap

Then cd to the project’s root directory and do the following:

$ vstrap init

You can then activate the virtualenv:

$ . quickactivate
