runway.cfngin.blueprints.testutil module

Provides a sublass of unittest.TestCase for testing blueprints.

runway.cfngin.blueprints.testutil.diff(first: str, second: str)str[source]

Human readable differ.

class runway.cfngin.blueprints.testutil.BlueprintTestCase(methodName='runTest')[source]

Bases: unittest.case.TestCase

Extends the functionality of unittest.TestCase for testing blueprints.

Create an instance of the class that will use the named test method when executed. Raises a ValueError if the instance does not have a method with the specified name.

assertRenderedBlueprint(blueprint: Blueprint)None[source]

Test that the rendered blueprint json matches the expected result.

Result files are to be stored in the repo as test/fixtures/blueprints/${blueprint.name}.json.

classmethod addClassCleanup(function, /, *args, **kwargs)

Same as addCleanup, except the cleanup items are called even if setUpClass fails (unlike tearDownClass).

addCleanup(function, /, *args, **kwargs)

Add a function, with arguments, to be called when the test is completed. Functions added are called on a LIFO basis and are called after tearDown on test failure or success.

Cleanup items are called even if setUp fails (unlike tearDown).

addTypeEqualityFunc(typeobj, function)

Add a type specific assertEqual style function to compare a type.

This method is for use by TestCase subclasses that need to register their own type equality functions to provide nicer error messages.

Parameters
  • typeobj – The data type to call this function on when both values are of the same type in assertEqual().

  • function – The callable taking two arguments and an optional msg= argument that raises self.failureException with a useful error message when the two arguments are not equal.

assertAlmostEqual(first, second, places=None, msg=None, delta=None)

Fail if the two objects are unequal as determined by their difference rounded to the given number of decimal places (default 7) and comparing to zero, or by comparing that the difference between the two objects is more than the given delta.

Note that decimal places (from zero) are usually not the same as significant digits (measured from the most significant digit).

If the two objects compare equal then they will automatically compare almost equal.

assertCountEqual(first, second, msg=None)

Asserts that two iterables have the same elements, the same number of times, without regard to order.

self.assertEqual(Counter(list(first)),

Counter(list(second)))

Example:
  • [0, 1, 1] and [1, 0, 1] compare equal.

  • [0, 0, 1] and [0, 1] compare unequal.

assertDictContainsSubset(subset, dictionary, msg=None)

Checks whether dictionary is a superset of subset.

assertEqual(first, second, msg=None)

Fail if the two objects are unequal as determined by the ‘==’ operator.

assertFalse(expr, msg=None)

Check that the expression is false.

assertGreater(a, b, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a > b), but with a nicer default message.

assertGreaterEqual(a, b, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a >= b), but with a nicer default message.

assertIn(member, container, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a in b), but with a nicer default message.

assertIs(expr1, expr2, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a is b), but with a nicer default message.

assertIsInstance(obj, cls, msg=None)

Same as self.assertTrue(isinstance(obj, cls)), with a nicer default message.

assertIsNone(obj, msg=None)

Same as self.assertTrue(obj is None), with a nicer default message.

assertIsNot(expr1, expr2, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a is not b), but with a nicer default message.

assertIsNotNone(obj, msg=None)

Included for symmetry with assertIsNone.

assertLess(a, b, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a < b), but with a nicer default message.

assertLessEqual(a, b, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a <= b), but with a nicer default message.

assertListEqual(list1, list2, msg=None)

A list-specific equality assertion.

Parameters
  • list1 – The first list to compare.

  • list2 – The second list to compare.

  • msg – Optional message to use on failure instead of a list of differences.

assertLogs(logger=None, level=None)

Fail unless a log message of level level or higher is emitted on logger_name or its children. If omitted, level defaults to INFO and logger defaults to the root logger.

This method must be used as a context manager, and will yield a recording object with two attributes: output and records. At the end of the context manager, the output attribute will be a list of the matching formatted log messages and the records attribute will be a list of the corresponding LogRecord objects.

Example:

with self.assertLogs('foo', level='INFO') as cm:
    logging.getLogger('foo').info('first message')
    logging.getLogger('foo.bar').error('second message')
self.assertEqual(cm.output, ['INFO:foo:first message',
                             'ERROR:foo.bar:second message'])
assertMultiLineEqual(first, second, msg=None)

Assert that two multi-line strings are equal.

assertNotAlmostEqual(first, second, places=None, msg=None, delta=None)

Fail if the two objects are equal as determined by their difference rounded to the given number of decimal places (default 7) and comparing to zero, or by comparing that the difference between the two objects is less than the given delta.

Note that decimal places (from zero) are usually not the same as significant digits (measured from the most significant digit).

Objects that are equal automatically fail.

assertNotEqual(first, second, msg=None)

Fail if the two objects are equal as determined by the ‘!=’ operator.

assertNotIn(member, container, msg=None)

Just like self.assertTrue(a not in b), but with a nicer default message.

assertNotIsInstance(obj, cls, msg=None)

Included for symmetry with assertIsInstance.

assertNotRegex(text, unexpected_regex, msg=None)

Fail the test if the text matches the regular expression.

assertRaises(expected_exception, *args, **kwargs)

Fail unless an exception of class expected_exception is raised by the callable when invoked with specified positional and keyword arguments. If a different type of exception is raised, it will not be caught, and the test case will be deemed to have suffered an error, exactly as for an unexpected exception.

If called with the callable and arguments omitted, will return a context object used like this:

with self.assertRaises(SomeException):
    do_something()

An optional keyword argument ‘msg’ can be provided when assertRaises is used as a context object.

The context manager keeps a reference to the exception as the ‘exception’ attribute. This allows you to inspect the exception after the assertion:

with self.assertRaises(SomeException) as cm:
    do_something()
the_exception = cm.exception
self.assertEqual(the_exception.error_code, 3)
assertRaisesRegex(expected_exception, expected_regex, *args, **kwargs)

Asserts that the message in a raised exception matches a regex.

Parameters
  • expected_exception – Exception class expected to be raised.

  • expected_regex – Regex (re.Pattern object or string) expected to be found in error message.

  • args – Function to be called and extra positional args.

  • kwargs – Extra kwargs.

  • msg – Optional message used in case of failure. Can only be used when assertRaisesRegex is used as a context manager.

assertRegex(text, expected_regex, msg=None)

Fail the test unless the text matches the regular expression.

assertSequenceEqual(seq1, seq2, msg=None, seq_type=None)

An equality assertion for ordered sequences (like lists and tuples).

For the purposes of this function, a valid ordered sequence type is one which can be indexed, has a length, and has an equality operator.

Parameters
  • seq1 – The first sequence to compare.

  • seq2 – The second sequence to compare.

  • seq_type – The expected datatype of the sequences, or None if no datatype should be enforced.

  • msg – Optional message to use on failure instead of a list of differences.

assertSetEqual(set1, set2, msg=None)

A set-specific equality assertion.

Parameters
  • set1 – The first set to compare.

  • set2 – The second set to compare.

  • msg – Optional message to use on failure instead of a list of differences.

assertSetEqual uses ducktyping to support different types of sets, and is optimized for sets specifically (parameters must support a difference method).

assertTrue(expr, msg=None)

Check that the expression is true.

assertTupleEqual(tuple1, tuple2, msg=None)

A tuple-specific equality assertion.

Parameters
  • tuple1 – The first tuple to compare.

  • tuple2 – The second tuple to compare.

  • msg – Optional message to use on failure instead of a list of differences.

assertWarns(expected_warning, *args, **kwargs)

Fail unless a warning of class warnClass is triggered by the callable when invoked with specified positional and keyword arguments. If a different type of warning is triggered, it will not be handled: depending on the other warning filtering rules in effect, it might be silenced, printed out, or raised as an exception.

If called with the callable and arguments omitted, will return a context object used like this:

with self.assertWarns(SomeWarning):
    do_something()

An optional keyword argument ‘msg’ can be provided when assertWarns is used as a context object.

The context manager keeps a reference to the first matching warning as the ‘warning’ attribute; similarly, the ‘filename’ and ‘lineno’ attributes give you information about the line of Python code from which the warning was triggered. This allows you to inspect the warning after the assertion:

with self.assertWarns(SomeWarning) as cm:
    do_something()
the_warning = cm.warning
self.assertEqual(the_warning.some_attribute, 147)
assertWarnsRegex(expected_warning, expected_regex, *args, **kwargs)

Asserts that the message in a triggered warning matches a regexp. Basic functioning is similar to assertWarns() with the addition that only warnings whose messages also match the regular expression are considered successful matches.

Parameters
  • expected_warning – Warning class expected to be triggered.

  • expected_regex – Regex (re.Pattern object or string) expected to be found in error message.

  • args – Function to be called and extra positional args.

  • kwargs – Extra kwargs.

  • msg – Optional message used in case of failure. Can only be used when assertWarnsRegex is used as a context manager.

debug()

Run the test without collecting errors in a TestResult

classmethod doClassCleanups()

Execute all class cleanup functions. Normally called for you after tearDownClass.

doCleanups()

Execute all cleanup functions. Normally called for you after tearDown.

fail(msg=None)

Fail immediately, with the given message.

failureException

alias of AssertionError

setUp()

Hook method for setting up the test fixture before exercising it.

classmethod setUpClass()

Hook method for setting up class fixture before running tests in the class.

shortDescription()

Returns a one-line description of the test, or None if no description has been provided.

classmethod tearDownClass()

Hook method for deconstructing the class fixture after running all tests in the class.

class runway.cfngin.blueprints.testutil.YamlDirTestGenerator[source]

Bases: object

Generate blueprint tests from yaml config files.

This class creates blueprint tests from yaml files with a syntax similar to CFNgin configuration syntax. For example:

namespace: test
stacks:
    - name: test_sample
    class_path: blueprints.test.Sample
    variables:
        var1: value1

Will create a test for the specified blueprint, passing that variable as part of the test.

The test will generate a .json file for this blueprint, and compare it with the stored result.

By default, the generator looks for files named test_*.yaml in its same directory. In order to use it, subclass it in a directory containing such tests, and name the class with a pattern that will include it in nosetests’ tests (for example, TestGenerator).

The subclass may override some @property definitions:

base_class

By default, the generated tests are subclasses or runway.cfngin.blueprints.testutil.BlueprintTestCase. In order to change this, set this property to the desired base class.

yaml_dirs:

By default, the directory where the generator is subclassed is searched for test files. Override this array for specifying more directories. These must be relative to the directory in which the subclass lives in. Globs may be used. Default: ['.']. Example override: ['.', 'tests/*/']

yaml_filename:

By default, the generator looks for files named test_*.yaml. Use this to change this pattern. Globs may be used.

Instantiate class.

property base_class

Return the baseclass.

property yaml_dirs

Yaml directories.

property yaml_filename

Yaml filename.
