build status

A pytest plugin for Sanic. It helps you to test your code asynchronously.

This plugin provides:

  • very easy testing with async coroutines
  • common and useful fixtures
  • asynchronous fixture support
  • test_client/sanic_client for Sanic application
  • test_server for Sanic application

Quick Start

You don’t have to load pytest-sanic explicitly. pytest will do it for you. Just write tests like,

async def test_sanic_db_find_by_id(app):
    Let's assume that, in db we have,
            "id": "123",
            "name": "Kobe Bryant",
            "team": "Lakers",
    doc = await app.db["players"].find_by_id("123")
    assert == "Kobe Bryant"
    assert == "Lakers"

Here’s much more realistic & useful example,

from .app import create_app

def app():
    app = create_app(test_config, **params)
    yield app

def test_cli(loop, app, sanic_client):
    return loop.run_until_complete(sanic_client(app))

async def test_index(test_cli):
    resp = await test_cli.get('/')
    assert resp.status_code == 200

async def test_player(test_cli):
    resp = await test_cli.get('/player')
    assert resp.status_code == 200
