What is this?
This is a pytest plugin, that enables you to test your code that relies on a running RabbitMQ Queues. It allows you to specify additional fixtures for RabbitMQ process and client.
How to use
Plugin contains two fixtures
- rabbitmq - it's a client fixture that has functional scope. After each test, it cleans RabbitMQ, cleans queues and exchanges for more reliable tests.
- rabbitmq_proc - session scoped fixture, that starts RabbitMQ instance at it's first use and stops at the end of the tests.
Simply include one of these fixtures into your tests fixture list.
You can also create additional rabbitmq client and process fixtures if you'd need to:
from pytest_rabbitmq import factories rabbitmq_my_proc = factories.rabbitmq_proc( port=None, logsdir='/tmp') rabbitmq_my = factories.rabbitmq('rabbitmq_my_proc')
Each RabbitMQ process fixture can be configured in a different way than the others through the fixture factory arguments.
You can define your settings in three ways, it's fixture factory argument, command line option and pytest.ini configuration option. You can pick which you prefer, but remember that these settings are handled in the following order:
Fixture factory argument
Command line option
Configuration option in your pytest.ini file
|RabbitMQ option||Fixture factory argument||Command line option||pytest.ini option||Default|
|rabbitmq server path||server||--rabbitmq-server||rabbitmq_server||/usr/lib/rabbitmq/bin/rabbitmq-server|
|Log directory location||logsdir||--rabbitmq-logsdir||rabbitmq_logsdir||$TMPDIR|
pass it as an argument in your own fixture
rabbitmq_proc = factories.rabbitmq_proc(port=8888)
--rabbitmq-portcommand line option when you run your tests
py.test tests --rabbitmq-port=8888
specify your port as
To do so, put a line like the following under the
[pytest]section of your
[pytest] rabbitmq_port = 8888
