Instantly test-cover your Django REST Framework based API.

Django-REST-Assured adds another layer on top of Django REST Framework's APITestCase <http://www.django-rest-framework.org/api-guide/testing#test-cases>_ which allows covering a set of RESTful resource's endpoints with a single class declaration.

This gives both a quick coverage of sanity tests to your API and a more DRY and more friendly platform for writing additional, more comprehensive tests.

As easy as

.. code-block:: python

class CategoryTestCase(ReadWriteRESTAPITestCaseMixin, BaseRESTAPITestCase):

    base_name = 'category'
    factory_class = CategoryFactory
    create_data = {'name': 'comedy'}
    update_data = {'name': 'horror'}

Django-REST-Assured is designed to work with factory_boy <http://factoryboy.readthedocs.org/en/latest/>_ for mocking objects to test against. However, you can easily extend the BaseRESTAPITestCase to work directly with Django Models or any other factory.

Main features

  • Class-based declarative API for creating tests.
  • Covers the stack through: route > view > serializer > model.
  • Uses Django REST Framework's conventions to minimize configuration.
  • All tests return the response object for more extensive assertions.
  • Automatic mocking of authentication if a user factory is provided.

Usage

The basic form of usage is simply to create a class that extends any mixin from rest_assured.testcases, according to the endpoints you wish to cover, and the BaseRESTAPITestCase class.

Then just set the required attributes, and continue extending it from there.

.. admonition:: example

.. code:: python

    class CategoryAPITestCase(ReadWriteRESTAPITestCaseMixin, BaseRESTAPITestCase):

        base_name = 'category'
        factory_class = Category
        create_data = {'name': 'documentary'}
        update_data = {'name': 'horror'}

If your API requires authentication and/or authorization just add a user factory class. Assuming you use factory_boy <http://factoryboy.readthedocs.org/en/latest/>_:

.. admonition:: example

.. code:: python

    # in some factories.py module in your accounts app
    class User(factory.DjangoModelFactory):

        class Meta:
            model = User
            exclude = ('raw_password',)

        first_name = 'Robert'
        last_name = factory.Sequence(lambda n: 'Paulson the {0}'.format(n))
        email = factory.sequence(lambda n: 'account{0}@example.com'.format(n))
        username = 'mayhem'
        raw_password = '123'
        password = factory.PostGenerationMethodCall('set_password', raw_password)
        is_active = True


    # now back in your tests.py module
    class CategoryAPITestCase(ReadWriteRESTAPITestCaseMixin, BaseRESTAPITestCase):

        base_name = 'category'
        factory_class = Category
        # see here:
        user_factory = User
        create_data = {'name': 'documentary'}
        update_data = {'name': 'horror'}
