TestCase that will launch your wsgi/werkzeug application in a separate thread for you

Project description

Version: 0.1

TestCase that will launch your wsgi/werkzeug application in a separate thread for you (using setUp and tearDown methods).

Inspired by Django’s LiveServerTestCase.

How to

import requests  # you should use this, requests is cool
from wsgitestcase import WsgiTestCase

class MyTestCase(WsgiTestCase):

    # add your wsgi application here
    # you can also set it with something like
    # app = staticmethod(my_wsgi_app)
    # see for more examples
    def app(environ, start_response):
        start_response('200 OK', [('Content-Type', 'text/plain')])
        yield 'Hello World'

    def test_something(self):
        # server with your app should be already up
        # use, self.port and self.url to find out where it is
        r = requests.get("http://%s:%s/" % (, self.port))
        self.assertEqual(r.text, "Hello World")
        # in self.requests you can find a list with all requests made to
        # your app. it contains werkzeug's Request objects.
        # see for more examples
        # and werkzeug's doc at
        # for Request object reference
        self.assertEqual(len(self.requests), 1)
        self.assertEqual(self.requests[0].path, "/")
