    To test a database, first you need some data. So I created a python script and used Faker to create the following CSV files:

  • SeleniumBase

    ✅ 🐍 Python Web UI testing and RPA. 🤖 🚀 Fast • Easy • Reliable.

    Latest mention: The 15 syntax formats of SeleniumBase | | 2020-12-28

    This format is used by most of the examples in the SeleniumBase examples folder. It's a great starting point for anyone learning SeleniumBase, and it follows good object-oriented programming principles. In this format, BaseCase is imported at the top of a Python file, followed by a Python class inheriting BaseCase. Then, any test method defined in that class automatically gains access to SeleniumBase methods, including the setUp() and tearDown() methods that are automatically called to spin up and spin down web browsers at the beginning and end of test methods. Here's an example of that:

  • httpretty

    HTTP client mocking tool for Python - inspired by Fakeweb for Ruby

  • vcrpy

    Automatically mock your HTTP interactions to simplify and speed up testing

    Latest mention: Magic numbers for Verify? | | 2021-01-11

    I don't normally work in Python, so I'm not used to writing mocks. You should be able to mock the client, but if that is too much you might look into something like which records underlying HTTP interactions and then plays them back in further tests. (Make sure to redact any API keys from the cassettes though.)

    Sixpack is a language-agnostic a/b-testing framework

  • nose

    nose is nicer testing for python

  • pybuilder

    Software build automation tool for Python.

  • pyresttest
