Documentation

pytest-docker: Docker-based integration tests

Description

Simple py.test fixtures for writing integration tests based on Docker containers. Specify all containers you need and pytest-docker will use Docker Compose to spin them up for the duration of your test suite.

Usage

Here is the basic recipe for writing a test that depends on a service that responds over HTTP:

import pytest
import requests

from requests.exceptions import (
    ConnectionError,
)

def is_responsive(url):
    """Check if something responds to ``url``."""
    try:
        response = requests.get(url)
        if response.status_code == 200:
            return True
    except ConnectionError:
        return False

@pytest.fixture(scope='session')
def some_http_service(docker_ip, docker_services):
    """Ensure that "some service" is up and responsive."""
    url = 'http://' % (
        docker_ip,
        docker_services.port_for('abc', 123),
    )
    docker_services.wait_until_responsive(
       timeout=30.0, pause=0.1,
       check=lambda: is_responsive(url)
    )
    return url

def test_something(some_http_service):
    """Sample test."""
    response = requests.get(some_http_service)
    response.raise_for_status()

By default this plugin will try to open docker-compose.yml in your tests directory. If you need to use a custom location, override the docker_compose_file fixture inside your conftest.py file:

import pytest

@pytest.fixture(scope='session')
def docker_compose_file(pytestconfig):
    return os.path.join(
        str(pytestconfig.rootdir),
        'mycustomdir'
        'docker-compose.yml'
    )

You can allow this plugin to run your tests when Docker is not available. It will use the container port and localhost instead:

@pytest.fixture(scope='session')
def docker_allow_fallback():
    return True

Changelog

Version 0.6.0

  • Added ability to return list of files from docker_compose_file fixture.

Version 0.3.0

  • Added --build option to docker-compose up command to automatically rebuild local containers.
