etest_http

etest_http is a supplementary library for etest that makes it easy to test http APIs by providing useful assertions and helper methods.

Example Test Case

-module (my_api_test).
-compile (export_all).

% etest macros
-include_lib ("etest/include/etest.hrl").
% etest_http macros
-include_lib ("etest_http/include/etest_http.hrl").

test_hello_world() ->
    Response = ?perform_get("http://localhost:3000/hello/world"),
    ?assert_status(200, Response),
    ?assert_body_contains("Hello", Response),
    ?assert_body("Hello World", Response).

Installation

Install etest_http by adding it as a rebar dependency:

% rebar.config:
{deps, [
    {etest_http, "", {git, "git://github.com/wooga/etest_http.git"}},
    % ...
]}.

Then run rebar get-deps to synchronize your dependencies.

Usage

There are two kinds of macros which etest_http provides:

The request macros provide a simple API to perform HTTP request. They return a response record on which subsequent assertions are performed.

The assertion macros provide useful http API related assertions.

Request Macros

perform_get

Perform a GET request, returns a response record.

Res = ?perform_get(Url).
Res = ?perform_get(Url, Headers).
Res = ?perform_get(Url, Headers, Queries).

% Url = string()
% header() :: {string() | binary() | atom(), string() | binary()}
% Headers = [header()]
% query() :: [{string(), string()}]
% Queries = [query()]

perform_post

Perform a POST request, returns a response record.

Res = ?perform_post(Url).
Res = ?perform_post(Url, Headers).
Res = ?perform_post(Url, Headers, Body).
Res = ?perform_post(Url, Headers, Body, Queries).

% Url = string()
% header() :: {string() | binary() | atom(), string() | binary()}
% Headers = [header()]
% query() :: [{string(), string()}]
% Queries = [query()]
% Body = binary()

Assertion Macros

assert_contains

Assert that the Haystack contains the Needle, fail with assert_contains otherwise.

% Test Macro.
?assert_contains(Needle, Haystack).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_contains(Needle, Haystack).

% Needle = string()
% Haystack = string()

assert_body_contains

Assert that the body received with the response Res contains the string Needle, fail with assert_contains otherwise too.

% Test Macro.
?assert_body_contains(Needle, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_body_contains(Needle, Res).

% Needle = string()

assert_body

Assert that the body received with the response Res is exactly Body, fail with assert_equal otherwise.

?assert_body(Body, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_body(Body, Res).

% Body = binary()

Planned for future versions:

  • Support for regular expressions

assert_header

Assert that the presence of a header HeaderName in the headers received with the response Res, fail with assert_header otherwise.

% Test Macro.
?assert_header(HeaderName, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_header(HeaderName, Res).

% HeaderName = string()

% Examples:
?assert_header_val("X-Signature", Res).

assert_header_value

Assert that the headers received with the response Res has a header HeaderName with value HeaderValue, fail with assert_header_value otherwise.

% Test Macro.
?assert_header_val(HeaderName, HeaderValue, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_header_val(HeaderName, HeaderValue, Res).

% HeaderName = string()
% HeaderVal = string()

% Examples:
?assert_header_val(
    "X-Signature", "42UVoTWYp9I-wdWJsQYUyEXRoCI1wCXmOVPqwdV8LU0=", Res).

assert_status

Assert that the response's HTTP status code is StatusCode, fail with assert_status otherwise.

% Test Macro.
?assert_status(StatusCode, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_status(StatusCode, Res).

% StatusCode = integer()

% Example:
?assert_status(200, Res).

assert_json

Assert that the body received with the response Res contains a JSON structure equal to JsonStruct, fail with assert_equal otherwise.

% Test Macro.
?assert_json(JsonStruct, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_json(JsonStruct, Res).

% JsonStruct = orddict()

% Example:
?assert_json([{message, "Hello World"}], Res).

assert_json_key

Assert that the body received with the response Res contains a JSON object, which has a key Key with arbitrary contents, fail with assert_json_key otherwise.

% Test Macro.
?assert_json_key(Key, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_json_key(Key, Res).

% Key = binary() | [binary()]

% Examples:
?assert_json_key(<<"message">>, Res).
?assert_json_key([<<"messages">>, <<"en">>], Res).

assert_json_value

Assert that the body received with the response Res contains a JSON object, which under the key Key contains exactly Val, fail with assert_json_value otherwise.

% Test Macro.
?assert_json_value(Key, Val, Res).

% Test Generator Macro.
?assert_json_value(Key, Val, Res).

% Key = binary() | [binary()]
% Val = atom() | binary() | list() | integer() | float() | {list()}

% Examples:
?assert_json_value(<<"message">>, <<"Hello World">>, Res).
?assert_json_value(<<"should_reload">>, true, Res).
?assert_json_value([<<"messages">>, <<"de">>], <<"Hallo Welt">>, Res).
