Info

This is a helper library to ease of your pain (and boilerplate), when writing a test of the asynchronous code (asyncio). You can test:

  • synchronous code (same as the unittest.TestCase)
  • asynchronous code, it supports syntax with async/await (Python 3.5+) and asyncio.coroutine/yield from (Python 3.4)

Installation

Use pip:

pip install aiounitest

Usage

Is as simple as using unittest.TestCase. Full docs at http://aiounittest.readthedocs.io.

import asyncio
import aiounittest


async def add(x, y):
    await asyncio.sleep(0.1)
    return x + y

class MyTest(aiounittest.AsyncTestCase):

    async def test_async_add(self):
        ret = await add(5, 6)
        self.assertEqual(ret, 11)

    # or 3.4 way
    @asyncio.coroutine
    def test_sleep(self):
        ret = yield from add(5, 6)
        self.assertEqual(ret, 11)

    # some regular test code
    def test_something(self):
        self.assertTrue(true)

Library exposes some other helpers like async_test, futurized to mock coroutines.
