is there an easy (python like way) to do mocks?

I discovered this lib a few days ago. https://github.com/bouk/monkey it allows you to monkey patch entire functions, replacing them by whatever you want. Perfect for mocking. It's simple to use. The program is hard patching the code using assembly to replace the function address at runtime. You should not use this lib out of your tests since it's absolutely not safe. It's only compatible with linux and windows. But it works great!

I do not give anyone permissions to use this tool for any purpose. Don’t use it. I’m not interested in changing this license. Please don’t ask.

Project includes a dependancy that has a license that forbids its use
From the explaining blog post

> I took the above code and put it in an easy to use library. It supports 32 bit, reversing patches, and patching instance methods. I wrote a couple of examples and put those in the README.

Either the author is confused or has decided that he doesn't want to maintain an hack. Anyway license is pretty clear.
There was an HN thread when it was released.
"This is as unsafe as it sounds and I don't recommend anyone do it outside of a testing environment."

WRT monkeypatch, again, this is a "global" thing and assuming you are talking about bouk's monkeypatch library the author makes the note that

Because the goal of the site is things of intellectual curiosity and repetitive things are not that. Repeated stories are usually duped off the front page and meta about votes is far, far more repetitive than the occasional story dupe or story that's not interesting to some person or another. It would absolutely eat the place alive. If you're interested, though, there is years upon years of moderator and user commentary on this:

> most of people on HN are ancap or fascists
This sort of generalization is notoriously unreliable - people are far more likely to notice what they dislike, and to weight it more heavily. This produces false feelings of generality.
There are hundreds if not thousands of examples of people making exactly the opposite generalizations - not because HN is different but because they like/dislike opposite things. A few are here:

There've also been numerous previous discussions of Csikszentmihalyi on HN. Via Algolia search: https://hn.algolia.com/?q=Csikszentmihalyi

Ah, I see. From an HN point of view these are pretty much the same story though.

pg_cjk_parser - Postgres CJK Parser pg_cjk_parser is a fts (full text search) parser derived from the default parser in PostgreSQL 11.

If the database's encoding is not utf-8, the parser behaves just like the default parser.
