Yet another unittest extension for python.

Project description

Yet another unittest extension for python.

Live Server Test Case

The LiveServerTestCase extension does basically the same as unittest.TestCase but also launches a live http server in a separate thread.

A comma-separated list of ports or a range of ports can be specified in the hope the live server can find one that is free to use for the WSGI server. The range may be of the form: ‘8000-8010,8080,9020-9300’ and will be read from the ‘LIVE_TEST_SERVER_ADDRESS’ environment variable.

The function create_app() is used to return the handler used by the WSGI server.


import unisquid
import urllib
import wsgiref

class TestLiveServer(unisquid.LiveServerTestCase):
    def create_app(self):
        return wsgiref.simple_server.demo_app

    def test_server_process_listening(self):
        response = urllib.urlopen(self.live_server_url)
        self.assertTrue(b'Hello world!' in
        self.assertEqual(response.code, 200)
