Mock for the redis-py client library

Supports writing tests for code using the redis-py library without requiring a redis-server install.

Build Status

Installation

Use pip:

pip install mockredispy

Usage

Both mockredis.mock_redis_client and mockredis.mock_strict_redis_client can be used to patch instances of the redis client.

For example, using the mock library:

@patch('redis.Redis', mock_redis_client)

Or:

@patch('redis.StrictRedis', mock_strict_redis_client)

Testing

Many unit tests exist to verify correctness of mock functionality. In addition, most unit tests support testing against an actual redis-server instance to verify the tests against ground truth. See mockredis.tests.fixtures for more details and disclaimers.

Supported python versions

  • Python 3.2
