gavo.helpers.trialhelpers module

Helpers for trial-based tests, in particular retrieving pages.

class gavo.helpers.trialhelpers.ArchiveTest(methodName='runTest')[source]

Bases: gavo.formal.testing.RenderTest

the main class for writing trial-based tests in DaCHS.

It comes preconfigured to handle URLs as the running server and will return roughly the same error responses.

It also has a method to XSD-validate documents against DaCHS’ built-in schemas.

static errorHandler(flr, request)

renders a resource a twisted failure.

This finishes request itself. It returns t.w.server.NOT_DONE_YET because of that, so you can write return renderDCErrorPage from a render method (or similar).

renderer = <gavo.web.root.ArchiveService object>
class gavo.helpers.trialhelpers.FakeRequest(uri=b'', headers=None, args=None, avatar=None, currentSegments=None, cookies=None, user='', password='', isSecure=False)[source]

Bases: gavo.formal.testing.FakeRequest, gavo.web.common.Request

gavo.helpers.trialhelpers.makeRequestArgs(aDict=None, **kwargs)[source]

returns a request.args compatible dict form aDict.

In particular, simple values will be put into lists.

gavo.helpers.trialhelpers.provideRDData(rdName, ddId, _imported={})[source]

makes ddId from rdName and returns a cleanup function.

This is for creating temporary data for tests; it’s supposed to be used as in:

atexit.register(provideRDData("test", "import_fitsprod"))

This keeps track of (rdName, ddId) pairs it’s already loaded and doesn’t import them again.

gavo.helpers.trialhelpers.runSvcWith(service, renderer, args)[source]

runs svc through renderers, passing a dict args.

args maps to single values, not to lists as in t.w. Unless, of course, you actually have lists to begin with.
